After arriving at the fly shop, I got some supplies and chatted with the guys about the local fishing. They told me that though Idaho does not get the same press as Montana, Oregon, and Utah, the trout and steelhead fishing can be phenomenal. Next time I'm there, I will be sure to fish the Owyhee, which is supposed to be similar to the Green River of Utah. This trip, I only had a chance to fish the river in town.
Though I did not catch anything in two hours at the river, I could tell that Boise was a fishing town. Between the film audience, the bike shop owner, and the plethora of fly fisherman squatting over the prime water, it seemed as if everyone in the city fished.
