  • The Fishing

    January fishing on the Spokane is still plugging right along. Yesterday was pretty frickin cold but overall this week and last weekend there were fish to be caught. Nymphing whether under an indicator or Euro nymphing has been mainly the go-to tactic even over streamers in the past handful of days. Hot bead patterns, and other flashy nymphs like psycho prince, jig nymphs, etc are working well.

    Hangman Creek is dropping again so there will be less mud affecting the lower river.

    No reports here for us on the St. Joe. Cold and icey will be my best guess. We won't have much to say about the Joe until sometime in February when it perks back up.

  • The Fishing

    Wayne and Kenyon from the shop hit the NF Coeur d'Alene River yesterday with friend Jesse despite the freezing ass cold temps. There was a fair amount of shelf ice and slush in the river but they each still managed a few fish apiece. Nymphing was the only tactic and the best flies included some bright colors like hot beads. Typical January fair! Fish them deep, fish them in slowwwww water. The lower you get on the river the better. You can drive above Prichard this year fairly far as the roads are clear, but the river is mostly frozen they reported so you would just be wasting your time. If the water warms up try fishing streamers on sink-tips like Big Bird Buggers, Sparkle Minnows, Gold Finger, Flashy Monkey, Lead Eye Leeches, etc. Something with some weight and flash. Move them slow.

    Don't forget to get you 2019 license before you fish!

  • The Fishing

    Good reports from Rocky Ford as of late. Small scuds have been the ticket.

    Good report out of Crab Cr. from Wayne Jordan and friend Jessie. Said numbers of fish were good, although not much in the 12+ range it was still solid action most of the day. Nymphing with a hot bead pat's rubber leg seem to do the job just fine. Water was in good shape.


  • Steelhead Rivers

  • The Fishing

    Some steelies being caught the first week of January down in the Snake / Grande Ronde systems. Because of the mild temps swinging with sink-tips is still producing in both of these rivers. If you are looking to swing the Grande Ronde, stick to the mouth area where it's a little warmer. Higher up is pretty much a nymph game. For swing bugs patterns like intruders, Bjorn's Goth Angel, wombat's, etc on sink-tips (T-10 or T-14 this time of the year). For nymphing a stone / egg (or bead) combo will be best, fish the slow/deep slots.
