Use stoneflies on western rivers a fair bit. Just don't fish them much. The fish in the lakes are bigger and stronger than the running water ones.

We headed to Chester Idaho area got the stones/salmon flies covered I think.

Anybody got any info about the place? Thanks for any help.

Nice. Let me know how you do. Chester is 45 minutes from my home up there. Sorry I didn't see this sooner. Could have given you some ideas.

The kid works at Henrys Fork Anglers in the summer, but got back a few days after your trip. This was his first fish this year right around Ashton somewhere. He said it was on a dry, but didn't say which one.

Scott has a knack for big fish....If on some of his float trips he took out above Chester dam he prolly came right past us at Bill Fuchs ranch. I completely forgot he worked there from an old post, dang! He woulda been great help or even a drift partner on an off day.
Gave a couple of guys a ride down to a shoal; strictly dry fly guys with tiny stuff (CDC caddis). They were with https://www.dryflyinnovations.com/blog . They caught few small bows on the tiny dries. I don't usually go smaller than 4x; I don't see how they handle them with 5-6x. Trying to run'em down in the heavy current to find slack water w/o breaking off...

They were real particular how they tied the CDC feather stems for the caddis legs.
