I love the image of a motorcycle zooming across the Salmon River on the Silver Bridge near our Idaho campground with a big ‘ole fishing rod sticking out the end and a saddle bag full of ties, bait and who’s knows what. I’d get a hoot out of seeing that, especially a whole caravan of half a dozen or more ‘fishing bikers’.
Fun as it might sound, I haven’t seen anyone like this yet, but anything is possible! Fishermen/women are a common sight around here, as are motorcyclists. Guess you could call us a ‘fish-and-motorcycle-friendly’ RV Park and campground.
Speaking of fishing, this Winter is turning out be a stellar season for steelhead. I’ve seen lots of drift boats out in the early morning and anglers returning home with happy grins on their faces and the icebox stuffed full. The Salmon River near White Bird has no ice with water temps of around 35 degrees, a water level at 3880 CFS and crystal clear visibility. Weather forecasts in the near future are for clear skies and daytime highs in the mid to upper 40’s and evening/early morning temps in the low 30’s. Nice fishing weather makes for a great day on the river, whether you arrived in a pickup or a motorcycle.
At least you can tell we are a pet-friendly campground!
Back to motorcycle fishing…I just saw a post from a Kawasaki owner in Virginia who posted “Has anybody devised a way to get a 5 foot rod from point A to piont B on a cruiser? I have looked at the collapsable rods that they sell, but my friend says that to get a good one, you have to pay a lot…..and then, how to get the fish home!? I know a couple of places where you can fish have grills set up near by, so I could just eat them there… but…..”, that’s in Virginia! Anyone in Idaho have a solution for the guy?
