North Fork River in Idaho, fly fishing for Steelhead in late fall

Jack and I went steelhead fishing in Idaho last week on Thursday and Saturday. It seems to be true that you cast 1000 times before you get a fish.

We caught steelhead and trout, but only a few. Those few got us "hooked" as the fight they give you is definitely thrilling. Our steelhead were in the 24 to 30 inch range and they were all beautiful.

 The scenery is spectacular. And, the Village at North Fork is a one stop, get it all place. They have gas, rooms, cafe, licenses, gear, supplies, and all important shuttles! Give them a call at 888.432.0240 or visit their website at
