First goose hunt

Avery shot her limit of geese on her first waterfowl hunt while hunting with her dad Sean Literal. Thanks IDFG for the youth opportunities!

Lost Valley Reservoir - They're Baaaack! Fishing Report June 2016

Fished Lost Valley Res. north of Fruitvale this past Friday 6/10 was slow for trout as it was for most anglers that I talked to.....we trolled and bait-fished for trout....instead we caught many perch in the 4-8 inch range.  Beautiful day on the Lake that is as full as I have ever seen it.



Thanks for the note, Lawrence. We've tried to eliminate perch from Lost Valley Reservoir on several occasions - but they just won't go away.  Glad the weather was great and you enjoyed your trip to one of Idaho's scenic fishing destinations.


Quentin Millage, age 10. First black bear, Clearwater National Forest.

I took my son out after his first bear, just a few days after his 10th birthday. We'd worked on setting baits the previous weekend and as luck would have it this nice boar came in within 20 minutes of us arriving to hunt. Quentin made a great 40 yard shot and the bear only went a few yards. His brother who took his first bear last spring was along to help pack it out. The evening was capped off by skinning it with a wild thunderstorm rolling in.
