  • The Fishing

    The Spokane River has been on the slower side of catch rates lately. While yes, there are fish being caught here and there it's not red hot. Definitely still one of the better realistic options and chances, plus it's close to home for many so you can optimize the mid day fishing. Nymphing for sure is going to be the best tactic. Stones with with a hot bead or hot spot style nymph. Streamer fishing with something a little bigger and flashier on a sink-tip is a good idea too. Find the softest, slower, deeper water. Sometimes that means fishing between brush pockets.

  • Steelhead Rivers

  • The Fishing

    Not too many reports from the steelhead rivers lately. The Snake River will be the best option, especially for anglers looking to swing a fish. Sink-tips are a must, plus a pattern with a good profile, movement, and some flash. The Grande Ronde is doable, but with colder water nymphing tactics will be absolutely necessary if you actually want to catch something. Swinging with a sink-tip can still be possible, it will just be challenging.

  • The Fishing

    Still nothing to report from the North Fork Coeur d'Alene lately and reports (if any) will be slim until spring. Right now its definitely a streamer / nymph game. Dredging the pools will be your best shot at success. For nymph rigs I'd definitely fish a stonefly nymph or san juan, combined with something smaller like a Spanish bullet, perdigon, midge pupa, or small attractor nymph (hot beads or hot spots can work well in fall/winter). It will be tough fishing, at best a few fish would be a great day.

    I am going to call it quits for reports on the St. Joe River this season, with the short days and colder temps it's winding down fast. It was another great year on the St. Joe, though a busy one with everybody recreating outdoors. Let's cross our fingers for lots of snowpack again. We will start to pick up reports on the St. Joe towards the end of winter.

    Medical Lake - Open until end of November. Great fishing reports our customer fly tier Bob Newman. He said large olive leeches on full sink lines worked very well. The rainbows on average were pretty large. If you are willing to brave the cold you have a few more day left to give it a shot!

    Another good report from our friend Malyn on Rocky Ford Creek. This time around chironomids (zerbra midges, small ice cream cones) were the ticket and another angler reported stripping buggers was good. Lots of big fish in the system right now as well as more fish due to a planting back in September Malyn reported after talking to a hatchery employee.
