Fly Fishing Gear and Trout Flies for the Lochsa River Idaho
We are not listing recommended tackle for steelhead or salmon, only trout.

Fly Line:
We recommend a 5 weight or 6 weight floating fly line. The six weight line would be better
for fishing nymphs.

You should have leaders ranging from a 7 1/2 foot tapered leader to a 12 foot in sizes
from 0X for streamers up to a 6X for midges and tiny flies.

Carry tippet ranging in sizes from 0x to 6X.

Fly Rod:
The fly rods for the  5 and/or 6 weight lines should all have moderately fast to fast actions
in our opinion. The best length for the rods is nine feet.

Fly Reel:
Reels for the lines sizes you choose to use should be as light as possible and have good

Waders are definitely recommended. We prefer the breathable type but you could use the
neoprene type in very cold weather.

Wading Boots:
Felt soled wading boots are our choice.

Landing Net:
A landing net is recommended, but not necessary.

Our "Perfect Flies" are the best flies you could possibly use for fly fishing the Lochsa River.
We have flies to match every terrestrial and aquatic insect that exist in the stream in all
