Priest River, ID

Click on map to super-size!
Priest River, ID is written and posted by YellowStoneFly of the Idaho Fly Fishers Blog. Going to try out this spring when the snow melts. At that time will post my opinion of the river and fish quality. Have found Idaho fly fishing to be a wonderful, almost full time, job. The following represents some research I have done and potential fishing spots which I have found to explore once the season gets underway.

Don't forget to purchase your 2012 state fishing license before you go out. Click on any photo to enlarge. I have heard that the fishing slows in the summer due to the fact the water can get really warm but that the spring is pretty good. I will let you know in April.

If any Idaho fly fishers have an opinion about these waters, please let us all know. But you have to admit, the river looks very inviting. Have heard that early in the season there are some good fish in the Priest. Water and flow are good and supposedly rainbows abound and they can be quite large. As the season progresses though, the river is spawned by top water from Priest Lake, and the water tends to warm. The trout are there, but much less active. You might want to try down near the mouth where the Pend Oreille cools the water somewhat. Makes me wonder what the brookie population is like though.

Happy Idaho fly fishing! Hard takes and tight lines to all.
