Currently the River is in Perfect Shape!
South Fork Clearwater River - Grangeville, ID (Idaho County)
Currently the river is in perfect shape! Water is that green we like, flow is almost perfect and the fish are willing to play! Every time we have been out lately has given us some great results. Last Saturday was probably the best catching we have seen thus far this season! Double digit catching! Would have had a bunch of photos except the folks I was fishing didn't want to take the fish out of the water. Had a keeper hen that would have weighed close to 19lbs! A couple other keeper males that weighed in the very hi teens! Been some whoppers out there! The next couple months are going to be really fun!
As most of you know, last fall we had some issues with some conservation groups that tried to shut off our fishing. Well we started a group called The Idaho River Communities Alliance (IRCA) Locally here on The Clearwater river, we have our own chapter. We are The Clearwater water Chapter of The IRCA. What we are is a group of fishermen and business owners that are looking after our selves. Supporting one another and staying at the head of the issues forth coming about our fishing in Idaho. Our chapter has a website ( https://ccirca7.wixsite.com/mysite ) On this site you can see a bit more of what we are. We encourge you to become a member. Cost is $35.00 for the year.
