    Bo, Mike, and Kenyon reported good fishing on the NF Coeur d'Alene River when they went Monday. They said hatches weren't as heavy that day but fishing was still good nonetheless. A few salmonflies out still. Fish will eat 'em. Goldens are out, yellow sallies, caddis, pmd's, brown drakes. Dry flies, yes. Dry / droppers, yes. Nymphs, yes. Streamers, eh not as good but a few fish being caught on streamers. Up high, yes. Down low, yes. Middle stretches, yes. Is the river high? Depends on you version of high. Is the river fishing, YES.

  • The Fishing

    The St. Joe has been climbing back up this past week. Later next week things should begin to get better again on the Joe. There are a few spots to fish on the lower river at these levels but for most will not be ideal. IF you are hellbent on trying it pack some stones with you and streamers. Flashy streamers this time of the year can be productive.

  • Water Cond

    Creeping back up. High.

  • The Fishing

    Local lakes have been hit or miss the last couple days. Damsels and dragons have been on the menu for most but don't overlook the callibaetis and chironomids still. On the warmer days start to think about dredging with the faster sinking lines. Good reports on bass fishing around the region too.

    Montana tributary streams opened up last Saturday. Most rivers are high still in Montana but some are dropping, probably worth exploring in the next week or two.

  • Water Cond

    Lakes -
    Good.

  • Steelhead Rivers

  • Flies

    Chartreuse or white streamers
    Flashy patterns that mimic smolt

  • The Fishing

    The Grande Ronde is high, but fishable for some bass at the mouth. No reports as of the last 1.5 weeks but prior to that it was pretty good with streamer patterns in white, chartreuse, or yellow colors.

    NOTE: The Grande Ronde is ONLY open from mouth to County Rd. Bridge (about 2.5 miles upstream). Fishing above the bridge to the Oregon state line is not open this time of the year. Please refer to WA fishing regs for current info.

  • Water Cond

    High but not too high for bass!
