Shadowy st joe

A very nice slow moving river that traverses for miles across northern Idaho. The water is exceptionally clear. Lots of fly fishermen and women.

It's one of the most beautiful trips you will have on a boat ride. Some people kyak, some sea doo... Head to St Mary's and have a cocktail!
