There are only a few states where one can fish for cutthroat and many of those rivers are located in northern Idaho. I have fished all of the rivers highlighted in this book and thought I would summarize what I know about them. General information such as location, directions, and camping, is included. Dozens of color photos show the rivers and other natural resources of the region such as birds, mammals, amphibians, and fish. I think after someone reads this book they will have a good idea about what the fly fishing rivers in northern Idaho are all about and what one can expect to see and/or do if you visit the area, especially if you are interested in fly fishing. Northern Idaho and the Panhandle region is home to many rivers that are suitable for cutthroat fly fishing. Some of these rivers included in this book are the St. Joe, North Fork of the Coeur d’Alene, Lochsa, Selway, Little North Fork, North Fork of the Clearwater, Marble Creek, Kelly Creek, Weitas Creek, St. Maries, Selway River, Marble Creek, and many streams and creeks that are tributaries to the rivers mentioned above. The largest river is the Selway and the North Fork of the Clearwater is the second largest river. One of the North Fork’s claims to fame is the blue ribbon trout stream of Kelly Creek that flows into the North Fork. Kelly Creek articles have shown up many times in various fly fishing publications and this book also covers Kelly Creek and talks about its history and cutthroat fishing. Some of the rivers are next to paved or graveled roads and some require some bushwhacking and walking. All of the rivers have areas which require walking if you want to experience a little solitude. Some information on camping and campgrounds at these rivers is also included. Information and photos of popular fly patterns on these rivers are also included. Information and photos of many species of mammals, insects, reptiles, amphibians, and birds are provided
