Spokane River, Washington
Spokane River is closed for the season from Nine Mile Falls Dam to the WA / ID State Line.
This stretch will reopen the Saturday before Memorial day.
St. Joe River, Idaho
I spoke with our shuttle gal again and she said there is ice riverwide in the Huckleberry CG area. Currently anything below that is clear to our knowledge. Boat launches are snowed in, you will have to drag / carry your boat in or out. No word on anyone foot fishing it lately. Still a couple weeks out in my opinion before anything really starts to happen here.

NF CDA - North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
Busy was the best report from the weekend that we heard on the NF Coeur d'Alene River. With limited access and places to park it will make fishing here challenging until the snow melts, combined that with everyone's cabin fever.
Frozen. Kenyon went to Amber Lake... frozen. Kelby went to Coffeepot... frozen. I drove by Sprague Lake on the way to Crab Creek... frozen. I know Omak lake is ice free. Other than that it will be a few weeks.
Clark Fork River -
I drove over to see the conditions of the Clark Fork on Saturday. As expected the boat launches are snowed in. A raft could probably be drug in or out, but you will have to be very motivated. Some ice in areas, but mostly open at least in the Superior to St. Regis stretches. I did not fish it, just went to see conditions. The river looked good.
Crab Creek -
Went to Crab Creek yesterday to see conditions. In the Tokio Weigh Station stretch it is fishable. It does have some color, but still enough visibility. We fished for an hour and caught a couple small rainbows. If you are desperate I guess it's something to do, but I don't personally think Crab Creek is that good on the public land anymore. A san juan, hot bead pats, or pheasant tail type of beadhead will get it done. Some midges and bwo's coming off, no fish rising. I was there late in the day.
We are wrapping up reports though for the steelhead fishing in our region since it's late in the season and close to spawning now.
Despite low numbers the guide team was consistent finding fish. Each one was hard work but there were some nice steelhead caught all season. Cross our fingers for more fish returning next year!
Thank you to those that did steelhead guided trips, purchased their bugs and/or steelhead tackle from us, we really appreciate your business!
