2016 Fall Video Fishing Report

Sean Visintainer - 10/20/16

St Joe River Cutthroat Trout.

Get it while the gettin's good!

A few more weeks left of good Fall fly fishing on the St. Joe and NF Coeur d'Alene Rivers. We've had a lot of great reports lately especially from the St. Joe so we figured we better see for ourself. Rivers levels have bumped up a bit from recent rains, but remember it's late season so increases in level are good coming out of summer time lows. Water conditions were good on the St. Joe Sunday as floated the Calder area. From about noon to 5pm-ish you could expect some level of dry fly fishing with mahogany duns, bwo's, midges, or October caddis. Streamer fishing is okay too, nymphing is definitely a good idea before the morning warms up.

The only issues we ran into was some foul weather during the first part of the float and lots of fallen leaves in the water competing with your dry fly drift. All-in-all worth getting our for a shorter day this fall on one of our beautiful North Idaho Rivers.
