The outdoors revitalize my being no matter the activity and even if only for a moment.
Being outdoors reminds me of what is most important; therefore, I long most days to be in the great outdoors.

Black Canyon

 Brad and I went to fish the Oneida Narrows a couple of weeks ago, but the flows were too high to fish.  We talked to a PacifiCorp worker and he told us that the flows were lower in Black Canyon.  So we went out scouting.
 Looking upstream at the Black Canyon take out.  We fished from the bridge to about 200 yards up, but no luck.  We tried nymphs and streamers, but no luck.  The water was clouded up pretty good and it would normally be crystal clear.
Close up of the map from Alexander Reservoir down the the take out point.

Just below the Alexander Reservoir dam.  There were Canadian Geese up on the cliffs and down in the stream.  We saw hundreds of deer in the fields as you head into Grace, Idaho as well.  Grace had a great little fly/lure shop that had some great prices.  I would like to fish the reservoir and the river to really get to know its potential.  I think Brad and I are going to be planning a trip up here early this summer.
