Last month, I took my nephew to the South Fork of the Boise for the salmonfly hatch. While we were there, we saw a lot of bugs on the water, but the rainbows were being picky, to say the least. I have had some wiser anglers say that persistence is the key for the salmonfly hatch on this stretch of river, but we were getting a little discouraged during our day on the boat, since we were completely skunked.
While making dinner at camp, we decided to make a few casts. It turns out that we picked a great place to rest our heads, as every fish we caught was landed 20 feet from where we slept. I guess sometimes you don’t have to go very far to find the fish you are looking for.
