|15" Moyie Bow|
The river is hard to float right now due to low water, but there are some accessible wading areas well away from the crowds. One of my favorite areas is on the lower Moyie below Meadow Creek and requires a good hike into. But the fishing can be quite good and boy is it quiet. I might suggest some bear deterrent though for there can be some very large wild animals here.

The Moyie just happens to be the north Idaho river on which ROW Adventures took their first one day whitewater rafting trip in 1982:

This time of year I would go with a #14 or smaller Adams, PMD or Purple Haze, I did recently catch a 15 incher on a YSF Stinger and another nice one on a YSF Nuclear Ant. Once the weather turns colder and rain/snow begins a wooly bugger (olive or black) can be the ticket. The "Canyon", as the rafters say, is a great fishing hole, but very difficult to reach.
Come Idaho fly fish with us on the Moyie. Other local area attractions include the Wild Horse Merchantile & Saloon on highway 95 at milepost 530 and Round Prairie Creek, the Good Grief Bar (frequently closed for renovations--sometimes for a very long time), Fiest Creek Falls Resort, which has really great food/beer, and the Canadian border crossing.
