Shasta Trout hosted trip to Oregon, Idaho & Montana

IMGP1829Oregon, Idaho and Montana,

July 15-28th

Shasta Trout owner and guide Craig Nielsen hosted a trip to Oregon, Idaho & Montana with Jason, a longtime family friend and fishing partner.  The trip covered two weeks and ten rivers : the Owyhee, SF Snake, Lamar, Soda Butte, Slough Creek, Ruby, Bighole, Rock Creek,Lochsa and Selway, as well as over 2,000 miles on the road.  A few of the rivers we knew a bit about, a couple others we had never fished.  It rained all eight days we spent in Montana, something we hope we will soon see to help quench the drought here in Northern California.  Unfortunately the rain blew out some of the rivers we had planned to visit but we were able to enjoy beautiful places and find fair to good fishing despite the conditions.  In fact the fishing in Oregon and Idaho on the way out and back was exceptional.  We hope to visit again soon.  Here are some pics of the highlights:
