Out of Area: , by Mike Wright: Great Trip To Boise!: 5 stars
I had the opportunity to spend a few days fishing in the Boise Idaho, Eastern Oregon area and the fishing was great.  
 
Spent the first day on the Owyhee River in Eastern Oregon, and the fishing was incredible.  Big Browns mixed in with a few rainbows all day long.  I caught fish on drys, nymphs, swinging streamers, and the big thrill of the day was stripping salmon fly dries on the surface and getting crushed.  Huge grabs!  The scenery was incredible. An unbelievably beautiful river in the middle of a high mountain desert.  What a unique place to spend a day fishing. Definitely a busy river this time of year. 
 
Day two sent me into a whole different type of fishery.  I drove up the Payette River canyon.  The area was referred to me as the "Tahoe" of Boise.  This was a beautiful river separated into a lower section that was more of a meandering meadow stream, winding its way through pastures and ranches, and an upper section that was a beautiful alpine river.  I drove to the upper stretches, and although the river was flowing at whitewater rafting flows, it was a great evening chasing rainbows with a dry fly in the slow edges.
 
Day three was still another unique fishing experience.  I decided to wear the hat of Urban Angler.  Woke up, got my Starbucks, and walked into the Boise River minutes from the state capitol and right behind Boise State University.  Had a great couple hours pulling up rainbows on various nymphs, and as the weather got warmer, I had a nice PMD hatch to enjoy.  
 
Overall, a great trip to a great part of the country for anglers with a fly rod.  I definitely will be back. 
Crushed a skated salmon fly! 10 of these in two hours. Whee!
The beautiful Owyhee!
Did they film Stand By Me on the Payette?
Fishing in the shadows of Bronco Stadium.
Gorgeous way to beat the heat.
Had to check out my "other" job.
Lots of these on the Payette & the Boise!
Nabbed a tagged one on the Owyhee...of course not worth $.
Venti rainbows to go please.
This is apparently not a river.
