Fall, Football & Fishing

all is my favorite season. The cooler weather, fall colors and a break from the long summer heat are something I look forward to every year. I’m constantly reminded of the beauty Idaho has to offer as well as the many outstanding activities our city provides.

October is also all about football, and Idaho has some great college teams to watch. Kicking off the month of October is the BSU vs. BYU game on October 6 at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Utah. Whether you’re making the trip to Utah or catching the game on ESPN, it should be an exciting start to the month. There are  four BSU games in October, but only one will be at home—the October 21 game vs. the Wyoming Cowboys. The Idaho Vandals start off on October 7 with a home game vs. the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns at Moscow’s Kibbie Dome. The ISU Bengals have one game in October, at home in Pocatello vs. Western Oregon University Wolves. In this issue, check out the players to watch and games not to miss. Where else could you wade into the Boise River for some great fishing and practically hear a BSU game over the stadium walls while you fish? Only in Idaho. This month, Roger Phillips shares some fall fishing tips for some fabulous fishing in the Boise River. To help warm you up, we are pleased to feature a few local coffee shops. We hope you will get a chance to fill your mug with your favorite brew.  To the right, please note our first annual Boise Lifestyle Readers’ Choice Awards ad. Nominate your favorite business in the month of October at BoiseLifestylePubs.com. In November, come back to vote for your favorite again to win the coveted Readers’ Choice Award. Our February 2018 issue will highlight and proclaim the winners of this year’s best. Finally, but most importantly of all, Prairie Medical helps us shine some light on Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

A Special Boutique for the Diagnosed and Recovering PRAIRIE MEDICAL ARTICLE ELENA TOMOROWITZ | PHOTOGRAPHY RACHEL WILLIAMS

reast cancer can be a dizzying experience for any woman, whether she is in full recovery, undergoing

surgery or recently diagnosed. Moving through the hospital system, scheduling doctor’s appointments and feeling like life is at a standstill can take a toll on a person both mentally and physically. There are special needs for breast cancer patients that can ease this process, though these may be the last things on a woman’s mind.  Tink Prairie-Newcomb watched her own mother go through breast cancer and realized there was no one-stop shop where she could find things like breast prostheses, specially padded bras, head coverings or compression garments—a place that didn’t feel as sterile as all the doctor’s offices she had already been through. Prairie Medical was founded nine years ago,   specializing in medical equipment for venous and arterial disorders. This past January, the Mastectomy Boutique opened its doors offering a place where women could acquire necessary supplies in a relaxing and boutique-like atmosphere. Boutique manager Marie Armstrong ensures patients that it’s “okay to care about how you look on the outside,” especially if that means making you feel good on the inside. A beautiful hat can make hair loss seem less daunting, or breast prosthesis may mean a mastectomy patient can leave the house with confidence again. Many don’t realize how affordable these options can be, and that certain insurance policies may even subsidize some of the costs. Tink suggests scheduling an appointment to ensure enough time for a proper fitting, though walk-ins are welcome too. This state-of-the-art shop also offers custom prostheses developed through a noninvasive scanning technology and is the only store in the Pacific Northwest to offer this technology. The professional and friendly staff want to make patients feel comfortable and have a positive experience, despite having to endure this life-changing situation.  This isn’t another medical supply store or hospital. Instead, you’ll feel as though you walked into a chic boutique, with a flair for taking care of women experiencing one of the most difficult periods of their lives. Be sure to check out PrairieMed.com for more information.

Monday nights chicken wings are 75 ents each, no limit, as many or as few as you would like. Regular wing flavors are served as well as a featured fresh sauce flavor. At 3:50 for 10 minutes every Monday afternoon, you can check Instagram to see what flavor the fresh sauce wings will be for that night only. The Shed is a hidden gem. Formerly The Lift Bar & Grill 2, The Shed’s location near Boise State and Ann Morrison Park, tucked in at 1010 S. La Pointe St.—across from the La Pointe apartments—has an out-of-the-way, pocket-sized storefront which has largely kept The Shed concealed from the public. Across Capitol Boulevard from campus, this humble hangout is just waiting to be discovered. The Shed’s food and drinks are as delicious as its sign is inconspicuous. Take your kids—yes, there is a kids menu,–your dogs, your buddies or your eccentric grandpa. Take a sticker and leave your mark on the sticker pole. Just take your own self if that’s what suits you. But do go on out to The Shed and see what all the fuss is about. Have a droolworthy meal and a good time. You’ll thank me later.

Brett Denton - Owner/ Trainer Kvell Fitness

OWN IT! CREATING A FITNESS MINDSET ARTICLE KRISTEN LYNCH 1. Brett Denton learned the tricks of the fitness trade as a lifelong athlete. Raised in Alaska, Brett moved to Idaho to attend BSU. Not only was Brett a student, but he also played running back for the Broncos. It was during these conditioning days that he learned he was more drawn to the training aspect of competition as opposed to the actual game day adrenaline. 2. After graduating BSU with a double major in biomechanics and exercise physiology, Brett entertained the idea of furthering his education by pursuing medicine. After getting a job right out of college with orthopedic sales, Brett hoped this introduction into the medical field would lead to future medical school. However, it was during this juncture he realized his true passion: fitness training. 3. While working part time, Brett started a series of fitness boot camps, working out in a tiny 175-foot gym, calling them Flab to Fab. During these early years, Brett  kept reinventing his vision. Each time he would recreate this ideal program in his mind, moving from gym to gym and changing the name of his company until he finally settled on Kvell. Kvell means happy and proud, especially in community. 4. By embracing his health/science and fitness background, Brett  birthed the ultimate fitness and nutrition program. His philosophy was based on the idea of community, of members sharing their struggles—and successes—with each other, every time they step into the gym or while going about their daily lives. Gathering the latest technological tools (apps and emails), Kvell members are prompted by daily reminders to make healthier eating choices, to be mindful of sleep and the ability to book classes quickly and conveniently. 5. Brett's mission is to change lives, not just physical bodies, by drawing upon a view that fitness is a mindset—one that begins with examining personal responsibility, accountability and striving to push one’s limits. Kvell is about integrating nutrition, fitness, lifestyle choices and setting goals to create the best version of their own self.

Water & Woods

Boise River is the Treasure Valley’s Backyard, Blue-Ribbon Trout Stream

GRAB YOUR FISHING ROD AND ENJOY FALL ON THE RIVER

Boise River offers the quality of a backcountry river, but in the heart of Idaho's largest city.

Boise River brown trout

S

ARTICLE AND PHOTOGRAPHY ROGER PHILLIPS

lanted morning light hits the clear water and ripples like 1,000 shining diamonds, and the river bottom is a cobblestone street

made of gold. Fall colors are starting to pop, and with a little luck, a hungry trout will make this a postcard-perfect morning. I carefully wade into the Boise River looking for signs of feeding trout. Fall is my favorite time to fish the river. The flows are busy, but not pushy like when the river's full of irrigation water rushing downstream to fill canals and grow crops.  The Boise River is the beating heart of the Treasure Valley, and it’s a backyard, blue-ribbon trout stream. It has healthy populations of rainbow trout, brown trout and whitefish. There’s virtually no spot along the river as it flows through Boise where you don’t stand a respectable chance of hooking a fish.  Fishing on the Boise River not only defines the character of Valley, but it’s also one of its iconic images. Rarely do you see a feature story extolling the virtues of Idaho’s capital city without a picture of an angler wading the river. 

Fall brings a new palette of colors to the river.

But let’s get back to cobble, riffles and rising trout. Knowing the fish are there, and their place in Boise’s DNA is all good, but it’s better when you feel a feisty trout writhing on the end of your line. FALL FAVORITE

Why fish in the fall? Like I described earlier, the river is lower, which means it’s a series of riffles and it's easier to discern where trout are likely to hold. As a rule of thumb, trout hold in slower water and seams (where fast and slow meet), and move into the faster current to feed unless there are insects hatching, which means they will be feeding near, or on, the surface. If you see bugs hatching and the feeding fishes’ tell-tale swirls on the water, your job just got a lot easier.  But rising trout are the exception, not the rule, especially considering the Boise River isn’t known for prolific insect hatches, but watch for them mid morning and evenings.  28

Boise Lifestyle | October 2017


Boise River rainbow trout

Fall also is cooler. Because the Boise River is fed by water from the depths of Lucky Peak Reservoir, it remains cool year-round, but in the fall it’s likely to be at a perfect temperature range for trout. The fish also instinctively know winter is approaching, so they’re packing on calories for those long, frigid months. FLING YOUR FAVES

The Boise River’s trout aren’t particularly finicky. That’s not to say they are pushovers, but one type of tackle or bait doesn’t necessarily work better than another. I’m a fly angler, so I prefer general “attractor” patterns. A small stimulator can imitate a caddis or a grasshopper. A parachute Adams looks close enough to a variety of insects that trout will usually grab it off the surface if it’s already feeding there. If there’s nothing happening on the surface, I will drift nymphs, such as a pheasant tail, caddis or midge. Streamers can be effective, especially for the river’s brown trout because they’re as likely to eat other fish as insects.  Small spinners or spoons will also hook a trout. I’ve always had confidence in a black Roostertail spinner.  And if you want to dunk a worm, feel free. It’s a classic for a reason—because it usually works. But here’s a tip. Don’t sink it to the bottom and wait for a trout like you would in a pond or lake. Let it drift naturally through the current with just enough weight to get it out there and submerged. It will look more natural and attract more fish, and you will also get it in front of more fish.  MAKE IT AN ADVENTURE

OK, an adventure may be a stretch, but explore. Use your fish-

ing trip as an opportunity to learn the river. Walking the well-worn path to a deep pool and making a few cast might net you an occasional trout, but finding those tucked away places where fish lurk is a better strategy. Look for logjams, undercut banks, overhanging willows and cottonwoods or boulders and gravel bars. They all make good trout habitat, and they will typically produce more fish than the obvious places.  Finally, savor the experience. The goal is to catch fish, but the river offers  much more. It’s common to a see a mink inch worming on the shore, ospreys and bald eagles watching from above or a deer browsing on willows near the shore.  The Boise River is more than a body of water—it’s an endless, natural, motion picture, and along with trout, caddis, eagles and mink, you get to become part of its cast.

Drawing upon his early experiences working under a Portland-area, third-generation Italian coffee roaster, Koby Funderburg learned all the tricks of the coffee trade. Originally from Twin Falls, Koby was determined to take all this coffee-inspired knowledge back to Idaho. His dream: to make a much better cup of coffee. “Living in Portland gave me an appreciation for a fine cup of coffee. I wanted to make coffee in Idaho the same way one appreciates a microbrew. You drink one and take the time to really savor the experience,” he says. Celebrating his second year of business together with his wife Patricia, the two now apply this philosophy to the local Idaho crowd. Due to his very popular bistro located in Park Center, he is expanding his coffee business with a drive-thru version in Twin Falls. 30

For a crowd, you may need to double or triple the batch. We do like it hot, so you may need to adjust the hot sauce if you prefer a tamer bite.
