Picabo, Idaho

"Winter Wheel Line Pano"

The above image is a seven frame pano looking toward Picabo, Idaho.  I used NIK's Color Effex Pro 2 for the black and white conversion and Photoshop CS5 for the photomerge process.  The Queen's Crown is the prominent hill way in the background.     

On a fishing note, the Lost and Big Wood are both fishing very well.  Baetis and midges on the Lost and midges and a few small stones on the Wood.  This is arguably one of the best weeks of the year on the Lost and Wood.  Keep in mind the Lower Lost now is open year round. 

As far as steelhead go on the Salmon I have been up to the upper river--Stanley area--quite a bit lately and while there are a few fish around it seems like it's going to be a waiting game until more fish start moving up.  The water temp yesterday morning at 11 AM around mile marker 206 on the Salmon was 36 degrees!
