Better access, more fish. Win-win.

Many North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River fishing enthusiasts will be please to note a few good things going on over on the river. In a recent post by Eli Francovich at the Spokesman he noted that the Idaho Fish and Game will be working on a new boating access site near Albert's Landing. Known as Freeman's Eddy, this site will be a new boat launch giving anglers more opportunity for put-ins and take-outs. Something the NF Coeur d'Alene can certainly use more of.

Also noteworthy was the improvement of cutthroat populations since the 2008 implementation of catch and release for all cutthroat trout. Not only were populations slightly improved, but size as well. Having fished the river since the early 90's, like most of you, I think we can all agree this a great thing.
