Dog Days

YellowStoneFly of the Idaho Fly Fishers Blog writes:

It is still hot in Idaho and Montana. The water is quite warm. Went to a couple of places yesterday with IDFFA member R.V. and had minimal luck. Small fish and few in numbers. It was not for lack of trying though.

My suggestion is to find a cold water fishery, at least until mid September. By then the water should begin to cool. Suggested tailwaters are the Kootenai River, MT just below the dam, the Green River in Utah, the North Platte River again below the dam and not to be forgotten the Missouri River in Craig, MT. Good spring fed rivers for summer lows are the Snake River in Jackson Hole and the St. Joe River above Avery, ID. Now this may sound a bit strange but the Spokane River, behind the Spokane Mall is great for the red band rainbow trout--supposed to be a great place to fish if you don't mind being called a troll.

Lastly, I spoke with Randy Dingman, famous Idaho, Montana and Washington ROW fly fishing guide the other day and he suggested the Coeur d'Alene River 20+ miles above Prichard, ID where Independence and Teepee Creeks come in to the CDA. Randy's contact info is below, but if you click on his name above you will see blog articles referencing his expertise or simply type his name into the search box located at the top left of our blog menu bar.

Good luck, good fishing and may you always have hard take and tight lines. Remember life is short. Live hard, love hard, fish hard and write down you own "Fly Fishing Bucket List". Refer to it often and get out and wet a line.
