Dick Lane (Fishin-injun) and Stu Farnham have organized
a 'Western' Fish-In for those who are unable to make it
out East to the Annual Fly Anglers OnLine Fish-In at the
Delaware River Club on the West Branch of the Delaware in
Dick scouted the area and found an excellent place for this
gathering. The Three Rivers Resort is at the confluence of
the Locksa, Selway and Clearwater Rivers, and has everything
our group needs. There are small cabins, large cabins (accommodating
6 people) A-Frame cabins, and motel rooms. The campsites include
water, electricity, hot showers, and all the accommodations have
access to the heated swimming pool and 3 jacuzzis.
Also on premise is a restaurant serving dinners, a full service bar,
gift shop and groceries, sporting goods (including fishing licenses).
Across the street is another restaurant serving breakfast and lunch
as well. There is a large open area which can be used for casting practice or
some casting games. JC and I have also offered to do a free casting
clinic one morning for those interested in improving their casting.
This is an excellent time of year to fish this area. The local rivers
are considered Blue Ribbon, and are catch and release. (More information
on the rivers is listed with links below).
There is an excellent article, several pages with good photos on fishing
the Lochsa, as well as as some of the flies you will need, in the June
2002 issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine. Martha may
be having her problems right now, but the article is worth the price of
the magazine. Your local supermarket should still have it.
Marie at The Three Rivers Resort was kind enough to send
us a copy. (And yes, there is even a suggested dinner with a cutthroat
trout - excellent eating!) The article claims the fellows had "good fishing -
around 20 trout a day each, in the twelve-inch range." But some of us
know the big boys are there too!
Watch this column for recommended flies, Dick will have a list of them
for us soon.
Dick and Stu are working on other possibilities for programs or
events, and we will post thoses here as details become available.

It's a great time, and an opportunity to make new friends,
and to put faces on names. This is my favorite time to fish
