Fishing with moose and coots.

Yesterday, my son-in-law, Jesse, and I went fishing on Henrys Lake.  We had a wonderful time and the full report can be found on http://billschiessfishing.blgspot.com/.  We got some spawning brook trout and saw some amazing wildlife.  Here is a male spawning brooktrout over five pounds that Jesse caught.


Canada geese flew over us several times.




Coots were working the shore and we saw seven moose along the shoreline.  Here is a young bull that was feeding in the willows as we were fishing.



Just another great day in the wilds of Idaho.

Seven Moose??? That trout is irresitable. I'm moving to Idaho - get your garage cleaned out - I might be needing a place to crash.

That fish almost doesn't look real, but is certainly a trophy. And 7 moose! Wow, move over Grayquill, I'd like to stay at least for a little while too.

What a gorgeous trout! And what a great day that you got to get a bounty like that AND see the moose too.

What fun you must have had Bill and that trout is beautiful. I had my first ever fresh trout while on this past journey and it was marvelous eating~

The brooktrout is fabulous! Last time I ate trout was at the Yellowstone Lodge dining room last year. Very cool to see any moose let alone seven 'meese', ha. If you ever do tours of wild Idaho, sign me up!

I love love your sunset pictures. Absolutely the best I have ever seen.
Thanks for the funny comment I would love to work with you too and yes we would laugh all day but I can do some serious fishing when given the chance.
Keep these great post coming.

The spawning brook trout is a beautiful color, and a nice size catch.
