Kootenai River

Tip of the week 

Nymphing is still producing great action up and down the river. Stick with a big point fly and smaller bh with an indicator set about 6 feet from the point fly. Use one Gremlin BB split shot about a foot above the point fly.

Dry/dropper action is picking up and fish are starting to look up in earnest. Adult caddis are good bets for the dry or try a #12 royal wulff. Drop a bh pheasant tail with 5x at least 24" off the dry.

Seven-day forecast 

Expect great days for the week with mostly sunny conditions, daytime temps in the 80's and light wind. Sunshine and warmer days will kick up water temps. Caddis and pmd's are starting to pop!!
