Kootenai River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

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 solid and starting to look up for big bugs in earnest. Hoppers or 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 partly sunny skies, light breeze, and daytime temps in the 70's.
