Idaho’s Golden Bonefish!

Fly Fishing Idaho, Frenzy

Idaho Frenzier Scott Corsi emailed me about 2 weeks ago asking about places to fly fishing for carp, Golden Bones, in SE Idaho.  I gave him my 2 cents and he headed out to Blackfoot Reservoir and battled the elements to land some nice Idaho Golden Bones.

He experienced hurricane type winds and some serious rain, but managed to snap a few photos of his prize.

    Thanks for the pics. Any way you would share tackle, tactics and where you went at Blackfoot? I’ve been wanting to get into this and just haven’t put it all together yet. Your info would be very helpful.

    This time of year and the weather getting warmer there will be a lot in the flats. Enough that if you just cast as far as you can and strip pretty slow there’s a good chance of hooking up.

    The east side should be where it’s at on Blackfoot for now, the water’s a bit high for the west side, lots of floating grass. Look for coves and shallow flats areas, those piggies will be in close to shore. Your presentations on these boys usually have to be almost motionless, which makes for a lot of fun when you can barely see the things. Unfortunately these big boys don’t chase down bugs too often, so try to figure out the fish’s path and have your bug sitting right in front of him when he comes by. It’s less important if you happen to find a pod of tailers, in the few times I’ve found them doing it there, they hit just about anything near them. Also, the Carp Classic is coming up, info at
