Officially Foam Season

Foam is home

It's official, foam season is upon us. My favorite hatch of the year. Yesterday on the St. Joe we finally got some true foam action with chubby chernobyls on the surface. We had some eats last week on the Coeur d'Alene River, but the trip yesterday brought on a few more players. It's by no means red hot dry fly fishing yet, but a patient angler hunting with a foam skwala, or chernobyl type will generate some interest on the surface.

If you are planning on trying out some of your favorite foam patterns on the Coeur d'Alene or St. Joe Rivers I would highly suggest running a small stone (or san juan) under the dry if you are looking to put more fish in the net. The dropper will get most of the action, and the foam pattern will definitely get some rises as well.

Lots of foam skwalas in-stock at the Silver Bow! Swing by and we can show you our favorites.
