Jack Vogel, 11 years old, with his first steelhead, a 27" female, caught on the Salmon River near Stanley. Way to go Jack! She's a beauty! Jack's dad, James, works at Boise Truss.
Taylor Dobson of McCall caught this 12" perch, his first of the season.
Elijah Lowther, son of Aaron, CDL Driver at Boise Supply, caught this baby blue gill in the pond at the Village in Meridian. Elijah was so excited! The blue gill went back in the pond. We hope Elijah and the fish meet again as they both grow up.
Here is dinner for the family, courtesy of Emmah Lowther, caught in the Prairie Pond in Kuna. This fatty steelhead was 20" long. You caught the prize this day Emmah.
Marco Ramirez says "when the fish is the same size as your wife that's when you know you have a good size fish.
Lana Bryan's kiddos, Bryce, Logan and Blake, tearing the crappies out of CJ Strike in April!
Five year old Taelyn Bautista reeled this 6-1/4" bluegill all by herself, giving credit to practice on her Nintendo Wii rather than to coaching by her Dad, Collin, of the Boise yard. Atta girl Taelyn!
Twin Falls driver Erik Olsen caught these hogs after work, fishing on the Snake River.
Carp-e diem to Robert Nilsson of the granite shop in Boise. Family fishing on the Snake River near Marsing is fun, even when only the carp are biting.

James Vogel of Boise Truss landed this big boy, a 31" steelhead, on the Salmon River near Stanley in April. This was the biggest steelhead of his life so far, but it was more exciting to watch son Jack land his first steelhead.
Taylor Dobson also landed this 4-1/2 pound, 19" sucker in Donnelly.
Jay Cummins, boyfriend of Jodi Whittaker, Twin Falls, caught this steelhead on March 28 (it's so close to April that we'll count it for the contest!). Granddaughter Emily couldn't bear to watch!
Taylor Dobson of McCall likes to fish. That is an understatement. Now he's getting co-workers involved in his obsession. Last Sunday, Taylor and Zack Babneau fished for 9-1/2 hours and caught over 70 fish, including Perch, Suckers and Catfish. "Best day of fishing ever" says Taylor.

Eric Mann of the Caldwell yard took 5-year old son Ezra fishing to a sturgeon pond. Young Ezra fished for several hours and then told Dad that his arm was sore from catching all these fish. That's within the definition of a "good problem," Ezra.
