Sinopsis: The first edition of Fishing Idaho, An Angler’s Guide, was the first book of its kind to catalog so many fishing waters (and some non-fishing) in the state of Idaho, though it was definitely not a catalog. The first thousand copies of the book sold-out in a month in the mid 1990s. The book has been out of print for more than a year and Evancho worked hard to get the second edition ready by second week of December 2004.
The first edition contained more than 200 pages of fishing information about Idaho’s rivers, stream, lakes and reservoirs and took two years to compile. It was written for everyone from worm dunkers to fly casters, beginners to veterans, for winter and summer.
The second editions contains the same, though updated, type of information, plus three additional chapters and new backcountry fly-in fishing information. With approximately 260 pages, the new chapters cover Native Lands, high mountain lakes and a thorough, albeit brief, section on fishing Yellowstone National Park.
In the Native Lands chapter, Evancho shows that Fort Hall and the Duck Valley reservations have some of the finest fishing around and that the Nez Perce and Coeur d’Alene tribes manage their fisheries with great pride and care. Each of the reservations has specific regulations of which angler’s should be aware.
High-mountain lakes are an important part of Idaho’s fishing heritage, but not a lot has been written about them. Fly-in (backcountry/wilderness) fishing can be as dangerous as it is fun. Because of the influx of new pilots working the backcountry, many inexperienced pilots are going where experienced pilots fear to go. This chapter goes on to explain some of the common sense aspects of backcountry flying as well as the water that is available. The section is also a prelude to Evancho’s next book, Idaho High Mountain Lakes, to be published in the spring of 2005
And because a small portion of Yellowstone National Park is in Idaho, a brief overview of the park is included as well as comments on several of its better-known waters.
The book covers the significant bodies of water in Idaho where fish can be caught—more than 600, according to Evancho. It also tells you where, for an assortment of reasons, no fish will be found. "That," the author said, "is to keep you from wasting good fishing time."
Several sections of the book are dedicated to the selection of proper gear, tackle and equipment of all kinds. The most popular and seasonal fly patterns are also listed. The book provides an in-depth look at Idaho’s top ten fishing spots, which includes Henry’s Fork and South Fork of the Snake, Silver Creek, Middle Fork of the Salmon and Kelly Creek and more.
The rest of the easy-to-use book is a guide to fishing sites. It’s divided into eleven sections made up of the state’s seven major drainage regions. Each section includes a brief description of the region’s features and reference points. Each map shows waterways, cities, towns, interstate highways and state highways leading to fishing areas. Global positioning coordinates are also included for some mountain lakes.
Sub-drainages within each region are detailed with specific information on the rivers, creeks, tributaries, reservoirs, lakes, ponds and puddles in terms of fish limits and whether they are stocked, natural or wild. Also included is information about lodging, campsites, vehicle access, boat access, ADA access and foot trails.
Former Magic Valley Regional Manager Chuck Warren had high praise for the first edition. He said it was "user friendly for all types of anglers which is nice to see considering the diversity of waters and anglers we have in Idaho. I plan on keeping it on hand in my office to help me answer some of the many questions we get concerning waters around the state."
This second edition is more comprehensive and with four new chapters and an expansion on the species section, it will compliment the first edition nicely. The maps have been refined but still work best with topo maps, and the GPS coordinates allow for more precise traveling in backcountry areas.
Work has started on a website that will include season fishing reports and links to several other Idaho fishing sites.
The beauty of FISHING IDAHO is that even if you don’t fish, it’ still a great book for guiding you through marvelous places where fish are found. Idaho native, Wayne Walker—former All-American linebacker at the University of Idaho and All-Pro linebacker for the Detroit lions—wrote the book’s introduction and summed up the possibilities nicely:
This book is a way of sharing the natural wonders of this beautiful place called Idaho with people who can appreciate it, who will enjoy its outdoor pleasures to the fullest, but who, hopefully, won't abuse it. So use this book and enjoy yourself. And while you're out there, be careful with the fish, kind to the land and take time to smell the syringa.
From the Publisher: Wayne Walker’s Introduction
I left Idaho in 1958 to play football for the Detroit Lions, knowing I would return home for good someday. And though it’s taken quite a while, I’m back. Over the years and in all my travels as a football player and sportscaster, my desire to return never dimmed.
As a youngster in Boise I didn’t have far to go to enjoy the outdoors, and one of the things I enjoyed most was fishing. During my high school and college days, my work with the Forest Service gave me the unbelievable opportunity of spending most of my waking hours in the midst of Idaho’s woods, mountains and waters.
Since then I have traveled, hunted and fished all across the North American continent. And though there are certainly a lot of beautiful places out there, none are more beautiful than those to be found right here in Idaho. That’s why, when Joe told me about his book and asked me to write an introduction, I happily agreed.
This book is about more than where to catch fish in Idaho. It’s filled with information about rivers, lakes, streams and reservoirs that can’t be found in any other single source. It offers tips on fishing equipment and techniques. It provides access information about the areas where fish are to be found. When used with topographical or U.S. Forest Service maps, it opens limitless opportunities to not only fish Idaho, but to see its natural attractions as well—from its geological wonders to its awesome wilderness areas.
One of life’s real enjoyments is sharing. Some things can only be shared with family and close friends, of course, but there are things of common interest that can sometimes be shared with others as well. To me, this book is one of those. It’s a way of sharing the natural wonders of this beautiful place called Idaho with people who can appreciate it, who will enjoy its outdoor pleasures to the fullest, but who, hopefully, won’t abuse it.
So use this book and enjoy yourself. And while you’re out there, be careful with the fish, be kind to the land and take time to smell the syringa.
