Mountain Transitions by Jim Connor

Walking Egyptian onions… These hardy plants have a strong flavor of onions that will intensify as warm weather appears. They are delicious with horseradish and roast beef or elk or any red meat. These are shown as dug from the ground. At right are the dead husks removed and in the center they are cleaned. At left they are to be eaten as fresh green spring onions. They are very tender.

No sightings of Clyde the fisherman

Clyde the fishing dummy usually appears on the banks of Garden Creek near Chuck and Pam Felton’s house in the autumn months, and people usually do a double-take. Now that spring has sprung, ice is off and the water is flowing. So far, there have been no Clyde sightings. Todd Adams photo

Taking a turn at the oars

Anthony Tappan lets his 8 1/2-year-old daughter Kenzie row the driftboat down the Salmon River on a nice weekend afternoon of steelhead fishing. In the bow and stern are Amber and Toby Shields, respectively. The foursome put in at Watts Bridge and were fishing a hole above Shep Creek. “The fishin’ is good but the catching sucks,” Tappan told The Challis Messenger photographer. That’s probably because temperatures, water levels and turbidity were a bit elevated. A flood watch, combined with chances of rain, is on through Friday night, so steelhead anglers may have to make do with less than ideal conditions.
