Kootenai River

Tip of the week 

It's generally a fall game plan right now so dry/droppers are best bet. Think size 12 or 14 attractor with a long 5x soft hackle or small bead head. Additionally, consider a small parachute Adams with a long 6x leader. And streamer action has picked up a bit lately as well.

Seven-day forecast 

Expect more gray days and precipitation through the early part of the week with daytime temps in the high 40s and low 50s. By midweek it looks like drier conditions will advance through the area with warmer days.
