Coeur d' Alene River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Dry fly fishing has been good especially in the mornings and evening, but little terrestrials are still getting fish in the afternoon especially on the cooler days. Mornings and evening fish can be up in the flats, but once the sun gets up focus on the longer deeper choppier runs with a few boulders strewn around.

Seven-day forecast 

Water is low and from here on out we will be most interested in water temperatures. Once water temps get close to 70 degrees the fish are very stressed out and we will stop fishing and guiding until the water cools off. As of now we are still good so take advantage of it. Not bad to practice landing the fish as quick as possible, no photos and keeping the fish in the water the entire time.
