The Trip Report:
We floated from the pine trees high in the mountains in central Idaho and each day the scenery would change as we dropped in altitude. One day we went through the “Impassable Canyon”, it was like something out of Lord of the Rings, absolutely stunning sheer rock walls and cliffs thousands of feet high and certainly impassable by all accept boats.
Fishing was a highlight for me, the cutthroat trout were plentiful and eager to take dry flies at all times of the day. I built a casting platform on top of a big cooler and stood up could see the fish coming for the fly before they ate it, what a thrill. Camps were on the bank of the river and super clean well maintained.
I loved the family atmosphere on this trip. We took a bunch of dads and sons on this trip and it was the best to just all be together doing adventurous things. I’d love to take the entire family again!
