....................... ......Fly Fishing Yellowstone National Park
Destinations: Fly Fishing the Big Lost River, Idaho Continuing with our Destination Streams sections in our new "Perfect Fly" site, check out this stream that few non-Idaho anglers are aware of - The Big Lost River, Idaho.
This stream is in a section of Idaho not many fly fisherman would be traveling to. They would be traveling in the nearby area, but not up the Big Lost Valley without they were going there to fish this stream. Most anglers would be headed to Silver Creek, or the Big Wood River in the general area of Idaho.
The Lost River Mountain Range and the Pioneer Mountain Range are some of the most scenic of all the Rocky Mountains. The headwaters of the Big Lost form in the Pioneer Mountains. When it comes out of a steep walled canyon in its upper end, the river flows into the large Big Lost Valley. The main part of the river, not including its headwaters, is seventy-five miles long. In addition to the two branches of the Lost River, it has several smaller feeder streams that provide some great small stream fishing.
The state has placed some special regulations on the fishing in this stream and we expect that to work our great for this fine fishery. We expect it only to get better over the years. If you ever get the opportunity to visit this part of Idaho, we suggest you give this sleeper a try. Just seeing this part of Idaho makes it well worth you time. You will think you are playing a part in a cowboy movie.
