A love letter to Mule Deer.

Spring 2015

The mild Idaho winter allowed me to begin a project to “freshen” up the interior of my boat.  It began as a quest to create a rear casting platform and fighting seat mount, and ended with a new deck, all new fabric, a new trolling motor, 24v battery array, new seats etc.   This project […]

9-14-2014 Update:

The ramp is in, and the docks are in the water, but are not yet installed.  The ramp and docs are usable, but are not ideal as of yet.  Fishing was slow but steady, and all of the action came on larger fish.


Just a quick note to let everyone know the Swan Falls Boat Launch Closure status.  The launch upstream will be closed through August 27th 2014.  I just got off the phone with Idaho Power, the pour and push ramp should be installed by the 27, though it sounds like additional parking lot work will continue after the 27th.  There is a status sign before Indian Creek after you turn onto swan falls road, so be sure to keep your eyes on that for Swan Falls Boat Launch Closure updates, the lower will remain closed longer.


Looks like we will be headed to CJ Strike this weekend!
