The river search for a man who fell in while fly fishing in Jefferson County has now turned into a recovery. Steven Adams, 54, of Lahaina, Hawaii was wearing waders while fishing Sunday night when he fell into the water. By the time they got to the river, the current had carried him away. Jefferson County Sheriff Jim Adkins says searchers will be out for the next couple days. “I've been talking to the father and he understands the difficulty of searching the river. Tomorrow we will probably have less active role and then on Thursday probably having a couple week float down the river and search.”  Sheriff Adkins says though Adams was an experienced fisherman, alcohol was a contributing factor. Adams vacationed at Trout Creek for many years.
