Filming Trout TV

North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene

I recently got the opportunity to film with Bob Asbury and Hilary Hutcheson of Trout TV on the upper North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River for Westslope Cutthroat. For those of you that haven't caught the show before this is the new spin off of Bob's hit fishing show Columbia Country. The show is now a fly fishing only version and travels across the west and into BC and Alaska in pursuit of animals with fins. It's been a challenging season to film a show because of unusually high water, but when Bob called to put a show together our timing was spot on for floating the upper NF of the Coeur d' Alene River in Idaho.

We spent two days filming and since it was my two days off from the shop and guiding I got the opportunity to be rowed around for once! The fishing was pretty consistent action on the surface with golden stone patterns and pmd's being the hot ticket. We even threw in some streamer action to mix it up and wait to you see the footage of what became of that!! All I can say is DAMN that was big!

Fishing with Hilary and Bob was a great time and look for the show to air February 11, 2012.
