Coeur d' Alene River

Tip of the week 

Most methods are working depending on the water you are fishing. Faster choppier runs have been good with streamers or nymph rigs if the fish won't eat the bigger dry, but when the fish move into the flats to sip dry flies going with a small griffiths gnat or mahagony on a long 6x leader can make the difference.

Seven-day forecast 

Looks like more of this nice fall weather this week so the fishing should stay solid. The higher up you go in the drainage the less water you will find, and the fish will be pretty tuned in to whats going on, but you can go high in the drainage again. Still lots of salmon in the lower river and good trout fishing around the pods of salmon.
