We planned on getting up early to fish the Snake River near the Basalt Formations before the heat of the day but didn’t quite make the early call. We decided to give it a go anyway and made the one plus mile hike in to fish. JP caught a nice bass and I caught a smaller one but the heat got the best of me (I know – Me? Too much sun? I didn’t think it could happen!) but alas we called the trip early and headed back to some shade. JP took off on his own and caught several small mouth bass further down the Snake River.
Later that evening we drove to the Clearwater River and tried our luck there. It was really shallow so after catching a full limit of rocks I decided to pack up my gear and just enjoy the sun setting on the river. JP waded out to the riffs and caught a trout and a white fish. It’s always fun to watch him fly fish!
