After watching four grandchildren run in a fun run, I headed for Sand Creek Ponds to work on a story about banana trout. The turkey vultures were staging to migrate and I saw 17 of them soaring as I drove to the lakes.
I interviewed this lady who had caught a nice rainbow, but no bananas. They had seen some swim by, but could not catch them.
So I rigged up my fly rod with a small nymph and moved to an area void of fishermen. The banana trout would follow my fly and finally one would take it.
They were small, about six to eight inches, and were easy to see in the water and even the ospreys got into the act and caught them.
Just another wild day in Idaho.
