It was a wild weekend in Northern Idaho for me. I am so happy that I checked off another river off my list. Beautiful mountains, great fishing and a holiday weekend in the books.

Thanks to my friend Ryan Allen of Northwest Outfitters in CDA ( Coeur D'alene ) I was able to head to out and fish parts of the CDA river. Ryan knows this area more then most as he has lived and fished it so much. We went camping and ended up coming back the last night due to weather but still had such a blast, so many smiles and so many laughs.

The cutthroat were eating and on fire. Not even 10 minutes into arriving to our first spot on Saturday. It was a pleasure to be on a trip in North Idaho, enjoying the mountains, Marty the dog and good company. I caught the most fish but Ryan pulled the biggest one out of the water. We both caught our fair share of fish and even stopped counting which for me is hard because I am competitive.

Ryan knew exactly what fly and how to be able to feed them a few different ways which is the ticket when the fish aren't eating what you are laying out. Follow Ryan on instagram here for fishing and art fun.
