Most people I’ve spoken to have never heard of the Selway River, even those that are from Idaho. But this White Water gem is also a fly fisherman’s paradise!
Three friends and I spent 4 days white water rafting/fly fishing the Selway River a week ago and it sounds hokie, but I think we averaged 60-75 fish apiece. Many of there were just little 4 – 8 inch native cutts, but you can catch these fish on top and sub surface. The biggest ones we caught were pushing 16-17 inches. We also saw some dying Chinook Salmon that run up the Selway River to spawn. Needless to say it was a blast.
I took a GoPro video camera with me and caught some of the excitement. I’ve been messing around with imovie from Apple and put together a little trailer video to wet your appetite. I will have a more detailed vid and pics coming soon.
For now, here is the trailer.
