Posts Tagged ‘Cutthroat TROUT’

Ally, Nick and Hero and their friend Blaine took a short trip over to the Little North Fork of the Clearwater River this past weekend (August 22-23) to camp and look for some Cutthroat Trout. Their trip was cut short on Sunday by the appearance of a rather large bear which necessitated a hasty pack-up and split…🤪

HERO… on the look out…

A view of driving up in the mountains…

Are we getting close yet ???

More mountain road…

Almost there…

On the other side of the bridge.

This is the spot…but not enough space. So just before dark, a move further upstream…

Where they woke up to this sight…

Nick wades in… but not with the 9′,5wt. Winston Nexus fly rod and Tibor Clearwater reel I gave him to use along with a bunch of leaders, tippet and flies…doh…old habits die hard…

Nice hole…loaded with fish…Another view of the tail end of the hole from above…

Nick hooks up … using (gasp) worms…

A look upstream…with right kind of rods leaning up against the tree…

A confab with Ally & HERO…

A Cutty in hand…Nick caught ten fish out of this hole…

HERO …after being unceremoniously tossed in the 4X4 after the encounter with Mr. Bear – which no one documented…

 

NEXT: …a trip with Nadia and Lil’ Moo from the desert to the mountains and back…

It has been a long Winter and Spring. None of the family have gone anywhere except frequent Zoom meetings to keep up with what’s going on and the rapid growth of my new Grandson Cairo, who is not ready yet to make his appearance on this BLOG. Ally, HERO and Nick broke the ice with a brief venture over to the North Fork of the Clearwater River in Idaho to wet a line…

Somewhere in Idaho where it’s real green…

An anticipatory HERO on the road…

The North Fork of the Clearwater River in Idaho…looking upriver…

 Next: I will come up with something to fill the void…
