Kootenai River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Presently the Kootenai is in great shape and fishing really well. Nymphing will move fish in deeper water and often more consistently bigger fish. That said, dry fly fishing has been outstanding and fish are looking up in earnest especially in fast water and broken currents with cover.

Seven-day forecast 

Expect mostly sunny skies, daytime temps in the high 80s. Outflow from Libby Dam is 9000 cfs and will remain there through the week. The river is in beautiful shape and fishing really well. Give us a call and we'll get you on the water.
