Kootenai River

Tip of the week 

It's August and in the spirit of brevity, dry/dropper rigs are pretty much the way to go right now.

Seven-day forecast 

A cool front has entered the area and is expected to hang around through most of the week making for terrific conditions. Expect partly sunny skies with daytime temps in the 70's and low 80's. There is a chance of t-storms through midweek which may bring some afternoon breezes depending on how things shape up. Skies are presently clear and there are no fires or smoke to speak of here in Kootenai River country. All in all conditions are good and generally speaking so is the fishing.

And lest we forget, the Boston Red Sox are in the hunt and are now nip and tuck for first place with Toronto. The starting rotation has been solid over the last ten days and so long as we can keep the bats making contact, it could be an interesting fall! GO SOX!
