Roadside Cleanup / Fish Out Sat, Oct 26

Posted in General on October 23, 2019 by flyfishersofidaho

Hi Everyone,

 

I have spoken to the weather gods and the best they can do is 55 degrees and mostly sunny. So we are on for our fall highway cleanup and fish out.

Like I said before in an earlier email, we’ll meet at Stage Stop Restaurant about 9 am, have coffee, breakfast, tell lies, etc., and around 10 am head out to mile post 113 outside of Mtn Home. I’ll have all the equipment with me to pick up trash; signs, bags, vests, etc. After we finish, those that want to go fish (like me) can head to the south fork and meet up. I usually like to start down past cow creek bridge, good fishing on that section.

I’ll be bringing my small grill to heat up a late lunch, anyone is welcome to use it if they want to do the same.

As usual if you have any questions or concerns, you can call or text me at 208-371-3958 or email me.

 

And I’m told the south fork Boise is hot right now!!

 

See you on saturday morning!!

Upcoming Events for Oct

Posted in General on October 10, 2019 by flyfishersofidaho

Good morning everyone,

 

I just want to send out a reminder about next weeks meeting, Oct. 17th.

 

Troy Pearse is our guest speaker.

 

Presentation: Troy will be sharing information from ODFW’s “State Of The Owyhee” meeting from last spring along with an update on the Boise Valley Fly Fisher’s work with ODFW to put up new signs in sensitive spawning areas.

 

Bio: Troy is a steelhead fin-atic, local angler and avid fly-tier. He is a member of Trout Unlimited and the Boise Valley Fly Fishers clubs and ties flies and gives presentations at their yearly Western Idaho Fly Fishing expo. He teaches spey casting and entomology at the Northwest School of Fly Fishing in Boise.

 

Also we will be doing our annual fall highway clean-up/fishout on Saturday the 19th,between mountain home and the south fork. As usual, we’ll meet at the stage stop for coffee and such (i’m having breakfast myself) around 9am. Then we’ll

caravan up to mile posts 113-115, do our hour of walking and picking up trash.

 

For those that are wanting to fish right after the hiway clean-up(like me), the south fork is right down the road and the water levels are around 400cfs which is perfect for wading. I’m hoping for excellent weather, but, then again this is Idaho. So bring your fly rod and waders. Also, I heard that our own Nick Bishop will be giving another demonstration on how to use your summer waders as a personal flotation device. Always entertaining.

 

One last item, if you want to submit your pictures for the 2020 calendar, please send them to wayniac63@gmail.com. But you need to hurry as this takes a while to put together, so get them in.

 

Thanks everyone,

Randy

Posted in General on September 17, 2019 by flyfishersofidaho

Hi everyone,

 

This is just a reminder that we have a general meeting this Thursday at IDFG trophy room.

Our guest speaker is going to be David Lupien, and he will be speaking on fishing Silver Creek. Now I’m told that his presentation is one of the best and will be worth every minute of it. And this is actually good timing as we are scheduled to go to Hayspur the 28th-29th for the annual Hayspur party. So take lots of notes at this meeting.

 

Hope to see you all there.
