Fishing was slow today, but we’re hoping now that the rain has stopped it will settle the water down and the catching will pick back up! First boat out today was Norm Klobetanz in his drift boat.  He took Leah Provencio and her daddy, Judge Brad Ford!  Leah won 2nd Biggest Fish prize back in 2007!!  And her father Brad tries to sneak up here as often as he can, when he isn’t doing his judicial duties down in the Treasure Valley!  Brad and Leah went on a drift boat today per her doctor’s orders…the Doc said she’s too pregnant now to be in a jet boat this time!!  So, she still had to get her WWB day in and …

We’re noticing a tiny bit of slowdown on the Salmon, but not for long.  The rain will raise the level a bit and color the water too, which will likely produce more of that hott fishing that we started out with!  Rich and Mike E. were upriver today with the Kresta Davis-Butts group!  These ladies have been coming for years…all mothers, daughters, sisters and sisters-in-law…it’s truly a family affair!  They always know how to have fun together to create some great memories with us here on the Salmon River!  Darci Moore caught a 22″H; and both Charlotte and Jacque Wasia caught a 27″H!!  See you next year ladies!!

5 boats out today…4 jet boats and 1 drift boat!  Norm Klobetanz took Melanie Jacobs out today and she said “it was the best day ever!”  She hooked 5 fish but was only able to land one–a 24 1/2″keeper!  By the way, she was a last minute booking for the tournament…literally, she booked LAST NIGHT!  So there is still room here and there if anyone is interested in going on WWB this year!  Just give us a call!
