Kootenai River

Tip of the week 

Nymphing is best bet this time of year. Dry fly action will start to ramp up as water temps warm and bug activity increases. But caddis and pmd hatches are starting to show up later in the day and there are fish rising here and there.

Seven-day forecast 

Expect partly sunny/ sunny conditions and daytime temps in the 70s though the week. There is a chance of showers nearer the weekend but for the most part it looks like great weather is here. Expect caddis hatches to pop with warmer days so consider fishing through the evening for better dry fly opportunities.
