All the ladies have been fishing their hearts out even if the fishing is a grind! The bite is definitely not quite as hot going into the weekend but the sun popped out for us and seemed to make the fish a little more active later on in. We are gearing up for the final week as this Satuday is Fish Dance at Seven Devils Saloon! Around 7ish.
Margo Fuller on Karen Owens boat landed a wild fish, they enjoyed their day with Rob & Russel!
Nanci Shoemaker’s group out with Mike and Tommy brought 3 steelhead into the boat. Leslie Phinney and Kim Pittman landed wild fish. Jami Esllinger caught a 26″ hatchery.
Over on Rich & Brian’s boat is Brian’s wife Connie her girlfriends! Kelly Mickelson caught a 24″ hatchery. Emily Stephens and Theresa Araquistain both landed nice Wild fish!
Brian and Connie also hooked it up the 3rd Annual Food Drive again. Brian’s boss at Simplot Transportation, Terry Threlfall donated $500 again this year for the Women With Bait Food Drive, teaming up with Jennifer and John at Riggins Whitewater Market this time. The crew at River Adventures and this community are so very grateful, again, for this gracious donation by Terry Threlfall at Simplot Transportation and the teamwork with Riggins Whitewater Market. Terry, John, Jennifer, Connie, and Brian, you all are awesome!
