I live in the central Idaho mountains on the North Fork of the Clearwater River. I have worked for 20+ years for Idaho Fish & Game in fisheries research. My wife of 25 + years and 4 kids enjoy our remote free flowing rivers and pristine mountains. We ride ATVs in the roaded areas, and hike, fish, and hunt the back country. The Selway Bitterroot, Frank Church River of No Return, & Mallard Larkin Federal Wilderness areas are all within an hour or two of home, as are the Selway, Salmon, Lochsa, Snake and Clearwater Rivers. We fish salmon, steelhead, trout, &small mouth bass in our front yard. Five minutes from home is Dworshak Reservoir, a 60 mile long lake with the Clearwater Mountains rising up from the shore line. There is not 1 house, lodge, resort, or development on our reservoir!! We grow , hunt, and catch our own food organically, and love our lifestyle. In our travels we search for the same, avoiding the tourist places.
