Family Fly Fishing Trip on the White River

Family Fly Fishing Trip on the White River

Last week, some of my family members visited for a few days to try fly fishing on the White River. Despite less-than-ideal conditions for using a drift boat, as the river ran at 200 megawatts every day, we made the best of it. To maximize our time on the water, we opted for several short floats from the dam downstream, rotating trips among the four of us. Using the staple deep nymph rigs typical for this season, we enjoyed catching a mix of brown and rainbow trout. I was impressed with how quickly everyone learned to cast and mend the 13-foot leader with split shot and two flies, a challenging task even for seasoned anglers. Their positive attitudes and willingness to learn made the experience even more enjoyable.
