FISHING — Silver Bow Fly Shop guide Sean Visintainer posted these photos to remind us that August is prime time for catching chunky smallmouth bass in the Snake and Grande Ronde Rivers.  Says Visintainer:

Bassin' is always a great alternative to trout fishing during the dog days of summer. Aggressive fish that will crush flies on the surface or just below. Try it for yourself or holler at us if you are interested in a guided trip on the Grande Ronde during the summer months.
