NF CDA - North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
4th of July weekend is the traditional weekend of tuber hell on the North Fork Coeur d'Alene River. Now is the time of the year where you need to plan on better fishing early or later in the day... or between tubers. Most will concentrate on the Prichard and lower area. Hatches consist of pmd's, caddis, drakes, goldens and yellow sallies, though this time of the year hatches are often light. Droppers (caddis pupa, lightning bugs, jigs, etc) under a small golden stone will get attention too. Still worth fishing here with good water levels for this time of the year.
We are open 7 days a week for business.
St. Joe River, Idaho
Continued good reports from the St. Joe River this past week. It's summer... what else would you expect from here?! Patterns include golden stones, drakes, and ants! Our friend Malyn said the ant fishing for him was pretty good. Pack some bigger mayflies (green, brown, or grey drakes... it's more about the profile than color) and don't forget pmd's. Foam golden stone patterns with a droppers, droppers could include but not limited to: jig patterns (pt's, hare's ear, caddis, small stones) as well as classics like bh flashback pt's, lightning bugs, anato-mays.
Will it be busy this weekend? Well duh, it's 4th of July weekend...
We are open 7 days a week.
NF Clearwater / Kelly Creek -
Good fishing. Stones, pmd's, and drakes. Good chubby chernobyl action with a dropper hanging 2' below.
Spokane River, Washington
Good fishing this week reports our guides Jake and Kenyon who have been pretty busy on the water finding fish. Mike and Bo also have had good fishing. Water levels have dropped considerably the past few days so wade fishing will get that much easier. Nymphing and euro rigs find fish 24/7 on the Spokane, a stone and a caddis pupa nymph will get it done. Big foam chubby chernobyls are also getting fish, run a 2-3' dropper under it with a jig caddis pupa or small pats. Some late evening caddis fishing too for the patient angler. Happy 4th of July!
Call us to book a guided trip this summer on the Spokane River and see what you have been missing out on.

A few good bass fishing reports from the Grande Ronde River. If you are looking for a "trout alternative" the Ronde is a perfect place to float or wade fish during the summer. Pack some sparkle minnows, mice, rubber leg buggers, and crayfish color streamers. Look for the softer water still at these levels and temps.
Steelhead reports won't pick up until September when the fish are back in the system and the season begins.
