Coeur d' Alene River

Tip of the week 

Mornings have been the best the last couple days with the return of the heat. Water temps aren't quite lethal for the trout in the afternoon, but there is noticeable decline in fish activity after about 1:00. Medium hopper and attractor patterns thru the riffles has been good and then pmd's, caddis, ants and beetles in the slower water along the banks and in tailouts when the fish move out and feed.

Seven-day forecast 

Looks like we might be moving to full summer time mode. Hopefully we keep getting the storms moving thru, but look like more clear skies in the forcast. Good time to carry a thermometer with you to check water temps. As soon as the surface gets to 65 degrees or over we are calling it a day. Fish don't revive that well at high temps and the fishing usually slows way down.
