Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for the Lemhi River Idaho
We recommend a 4 weight, floating fly line or a 5 weight, floating fly line for dry flies and
small nymphs for the major part of the Lemhi River. Many anglers may prefer a 6 weight
floating fly line for heavier nymphs and streamers. You may also want a sinking tip line for
streamers in the 6 weight line.
Leaders should range in sizes from a 0X for streamers up to a 6X for midges and small dry
flies. Lengths ranging from seven and one-half feet up to 12 feet are suggested.
We suggest that you have extra tippet material in sizes ranging from 0X to 6X.
We think the fly rods should have a moderately fast to fast action and be nine feet in
The fly reels for the 4, 5 and 6 weight fly lines should be light and have a good smooth
drags. We think disc drags are the best.
There are a few areas you will be able to fish without waders but you will need them most
We recommend felt soles for your wading boots.
A wading staff would be purely optional.
A landing net is another optional item.
We recommend our "Perfect Fly" trout flies. We suggest you select the flies for the
particular time of year you plan on fishing for the information provided on the hatches and
trout flies section. There are several species of aquatic insects that live in this small
stream and to be successful you have to be aware of what the trout are most likely to be
focused on. Terrestrials are also important, especially during the late summer season.
