The Bull is perfect right now. Here are a few photos I took today while scouting conditions. We also have had a mild winter and thus far the snow fall has been about 6 feet below average. We have already had spring conditions with highs in the upper 60's and lows around freezing. The plus is we have had little rainfall, so snow melt has been gradual so rivers are much lower than normal and the water is still fairly clear. Midge hatches are already happening and the stoneflies should show soon. I have attached a few photos of the Bull for your pleasure.

While in the area, check out the intersection of the Moyie and Kootenai Rivers and with an email I can give you directions to my favorite spot. If the water is not too high, you can cross the Moyie and get in some superb fly fishing. Also, don't forget to check out the St. Joe while you are here, and there is a possibility the north fork of the Coeur d'Alene may be fishable as well.
Good luck and send some photos. I may put them in my blog. PS-a float tube or pontoon boat may help.
Please remember, we encourage catch and release fishing only at this blog. Measure your catch, take a quick photo and then release her/him. Plastic mounts are easy to order and last a lot longer than the real thing. Email me and I will recommend a guide for you who really knows the Bull River area.
Hard takes and tight lines to you all.
