Fish Out for March

Posted in General on March 14, 2019 by flyfishersofidaho

Hey everyone, I’m going to plan a fish out for Saturday March 23rd. I’m not sure if it’s going to be Owyhee River or South fork Boise.  The temps are predicted to be in the upper 50’s and mostly cloudy, but that could change as we all know. Anyway, we’ll talk about it at the meeting and decide which way we are going to go. Also we have Dave Tucker who is going to talk about fishing and guiding on the Owyhee River. What flies to use, strategies, hatches, etc. He will also talk about the future of the Owyhee River and the problems it faces. And we will be meeting the winners of our raffle drawings at the sportsman show, as they come to collect their prize. Should be a really good program and a great evening. Hope to see everyone there.

 

 

Fish on!!!

Hello Fly Fishers,

This is just a reminder about next weeks general meeting. We’ve got a great program scheduled for the evening and some new business to discuss for the year to include fishouts, sportsman show, more fishouts, hayspur campground, picnic, fishouts, etc.

Dan Baker from IDFG Eagle Hatchery will be here to talk about raising trout and steelhead, stocking program, what hatchery’s do in general. This would be a great opportunity to ask questions, like where they are stocking the big trout!!!

So mark your calendar for next thursday the 17th, 6:30pm at IDFG headquarters, trophy room. As usual we will have a raffle and door prize. If you have a fishing buddy that might be interested in coming then by all means bring them along.

 

See you there.
