  • The Fishing

    The Spokane River will be one of the better options during the heat and summer months thanks to the aquifer recharge keeping it cool. Everything below Sullivan bridge and downtown will stay in the safe temps for trout. Above that will be warm, bass water. Our guide crew has had good reports this past week. Hopper or chernobyl / droppers are what we rock all summer. Euro will get it done, double nymph rigs will get it done. Swinging soft hackles will be good. Still some caddis hatching. Late evening you could have some risers on caddis. Noon - late afternoons will have tubers.

  • The Fishing

    It's going to be toasty this week everywhere. Fishing on the North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River will be best in the first half of the day. The lower and mid river stretches will be full of inner tubers from here on out, so get out before them or find water higher up, etc to avoid them. Small chernobyls, terrestrials, attractors, small goldens, sallies, and caddis will round out most of the fly choices. If you are running a chernobyl (or even a small hopper will work now) definitely run a dropper (caddis pupa, perdigon, lightning bugs, etc). Find the slots, riffles, drop offs for best success.

  • The Fishing

    With this heatwave this week and for the extended forecast fishing will be best in the first half of the day everywhere including the St. Joe River. Fishing the riffles, drop offs, boulder runs will be ideal places... summer water. Inner tubers on the lower stretches will be out. Tribs will be good. We are transitioning to full summer mode which means attractors and terrestrials from here on out too. Run droppers under your chernobyl types of bugs. A tungsten caddis pupa, perdigon, lightning bug, etc will find fish.

  • The Fishing

    Hot temperatures around the west have caused some fishing closures or restrictions in places like Montana. Many rivers have already gone to "Hoot-Owl" restrictions, please reference the Montana Fish and Wildlife website for the latest before venturing to Montana.

    The Kootenai River shines during the summertime heat. Being a tailwater it runs cold summer. During the summer fish dries or dry droppers here. Chernobyl patterns, chubby chernobyls and hoppers are all important. We like to fish a 24-30" dropper to something like a perdion, tungsten caddis pupa, jig prince, or jig pheasant tail. PMD's and caddis will also be hatching.

    It's carp and bass season!
