Sometimes everything clicks! I took my son up to Doane Pond in San Diego County several years ago (back in the long hair days!), and we caught limits of nice sized stocked rainbows. Couldn’t have been a better way to spend a spring day.

I’m anxious to get back to Silver Creek and see how the Kilpatrick Pond restoration turned out. I understand they dredged and re-channeled the pond to keep the water moving and improve fish habitat. It should cool the water and improve fishing in the lower creek area. Here are three tubers last spring, just below the bridge.
Fall has arrived on the Henry’s Fork in Idaho. This picture was taken earlier this month at the gravel pit, looking upriver toward Harriman State Park. Flowers are gone, grass is turning, fall hatches are about to get underway. You can see the remains of an early snow storm on the distant hills.

Walking down to the Henry’s Fork in Idaho, I glanced over and saw this net hanging on a fence post. It makes you wonder. Did someone catch a fish that was so big it tore their net apart? Or was it just an old net that had seen better days and the fisherman left the bones here in this fitting place. We’ll never know, but it sure makes you wonder.
Been to the Silver Creek Store lately? Picabo Anglers has expanded their fly shop to include just about anything a fly fisherman might need while fishing Silver Creek. No need to make the long trek up the valley to purchase a license, buy flies, get the latest info on the creek or upgrade your gear. The store also has a great restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and snacks. Next time you’re in the area, stop in!
These anglers are starting their day on world famous Silver Creek in Idaho with their fishing guide on Kilpatrick Pond. This area of the creek is known for feisty large Rainbow Trout.
