    Great fishing this week on the Spokane for Kenyon and Mike. Nymphing is very productive, in particular with a bwo nymphs. Whether you have a standard indicator rig, or a euro rig make sure one of your flies is a smaller beadhead to represent a bwo as there have been lots of the insects hatching lately and fish are keyed in on them. Definitely some good head hunting going on mid-day hours as well with bwo emergers, cripples, and adults. A few fall caddis out as well. Streamer fishing has been so-so. Fish are still hanging in some heavy currents, but the slower seams play a very important roll in finding fish this time of the year so look for softer currents as well.

    Grande Ronde -
    I went down to the Grande Ronde yesterday looking for the elusive steelie. The water is exceptionally clear and cold. A late start is a good idea in my opinion. Fishing was slow until a couple buzzer beaters came in the last 40 mins of daylight. Both nymphing. I had one good grab swinging with T-14 and a black/blue loop leech, didn't swing much though. Both fish were pretty good sized hens. Enjoy the good weather/conditions while we got it!

  • The Fishing

    Nothing new as of late... The North Fork Coeur d'Alene River still remains an option for those seeking a few last trout before winter truly sets in. It has had some ice issues, in particular the higher up you go. The fishing, and open ice-free water, will be the lower. The lower river is typically defined as Prichard and downstream. On warmer days you will have the chance at some bwo or midge fishing on the surface for a short window in the afternoon. Definitely plan on some slow water nymphing and streamers slowly stripped through deep pools. For nymphs I would suggest patterns that represent bwo's and midges or small attractors like copper john types. Streamers such as sculpzillas, kreelex, big bird and others that are sculpin or attractor style should work.

    Nothing new since the last report. Going to be some ice, if not completely iced over up by Avery. Lower stretches should be fine. No reports.
