NF CDA - North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
We were back out on the North Fork Coeur d'Alene River yesterday. Fishing has been good, but mostly in the afternoon if you are looking to fish dries. Morning hours have been mostly nymphing. Afternoon hatches of salmonflies, pmds, skwalas, drakes, and some caddis will get some fish up. Mostly the dry fly fishing has been blind fishing with a stonefly, typically of the salmonfly variety which has been working the best. Nymphing with a stone / lightning bug combo has been well. Most fish will eat the stone but a fair amount are eating the lightning bug, probably due to the amount of pmd's that have been out. The higher up you go, the slower the fishing has been, especially the first half of the day. Conditions may change with rain in the forecast so keep tabs on what is happening, currently it's good.
Our local lakes slowed down a bit last weekend with the warmer temps, but with colder weather moving we should see an uptick in trout fishing. Chironomids, balanced leeches, callibaetis, and damsels/dragonflies will produce fish throughout the day.
Bass and carp fishing has also been good with fish getting ready to spawn, so the feedbags have been put on. Come into the shop if you're interested in trying something new. Both of these fish are really fun to catch on the fly!
Spokane River, Washington
The Spokane River will re-open the Saturday before Memorial Day (May 25th)
Good smallmouth bass fishing on the Grande Ronde lately. High, but very fishable! The river is open year round now up to the Oregon State Line for gamefish like bass. Minnow / Smolt patterns work great this time of the season.
