Blackfoot River Idaho

The Blackfoot River was a low for this time of year but the fishing was ok. I caught 6 cutthroats - one 21", 2 16", and the rest were 8-10". I lost a couple of nice fish too. The best carp!! Last year carp were everywhere but it looks like the carp trap is back in the river and doing its job.

Hot flies:

  1. Black and red/orange bead head woolly bugger (size 4)
  2. Bead Head Hair's Ear (size 14)
  3. Bead Head Prince Nymph (size 14)
  4. A white Thingamabob (yes I had numerous trout try to take my strike indicator!)

Hopefully over the next few weeks we will see the blue damselflies and some other fly hatches.

Here is the 21" cutthroat caught on a black and red woolly bugger (size 4) (same pic/different angle):
