Teepee Creek, ID

North Fork Coeur d'Alene bluffs

NF Coeur d'Alene Cutty
Thanks for the note and blog viewing. Sorry for the late reply, but you know--meetings and work. Again, one of my favorite subjects about one of my favorite Idaho fly fishing waters. Springtime is a great time to fish the NF of the CDA. Water is good and easily floatable. The Teepee can also be good and fish well in the late spring and early summer. This year though beware, thus far, we have received only half of our normal snowfall and creeks/rivers may get low and very warm very early. If Teepee is on though, you should have a great time. Flies are frequently hatch dependent when the weather warms, but for late spring and early summer, if no hatch, I would go  with orange/yellow stimulator, YSF Nuclear AntChernobyl Ant or YSF Stinger.

St. Joe summer cutty
I am assuming you know how to get there. Teepee is 25 miles north of Prichard on the River Rd. Once the pavement ends Teepee is on your left and really not visible. If you hit the campground on the left, will be some travel trailers and tents there, you have gone too far. See my blog post: NF Coeur d'Alene River (Revisited)  ..... "I was in the quaint town of Wallace right on I-90 where "Dante's Peak" was mostly filmed. Had breakfast and drove over the mountain up, then down 9 Mile Creek Road to Prichard--beautiful but would not advise if one is prone to motion sickness. Once there you turn north along the NF CDA and travel about 25 miles until road ends. Teepee Creek and multiple others are there. Camping is available. Gravel road is VERY rough. I actually did most of my fishing just below Big Hanks Campground. Just park on a turn out, find a riverside trail and go for it."

Don't remember where cutty 2013
The St. Joe and Kelly Creek are always good bets. Again the above mentioned flies are good bets on the Joe but I would definitely fish very high. If I were on I-90 would probably go in from St. Regis, MT over the mountain on the Little Joe Rd then turn left once you hit the St. Joe River Rd. Anyone in St. Regis can tell you how to get to the road. And actually, since you will be right there, the middle fork of the Clark Fork from St. Regis down to Plains, MT has fairly cold water and can have good fishing during the "Dog Days" of summer.

PS-If you need a guide for the CDA, Randy Dingman, a good friend and square guide fishes it all the time:

Good luck and have a great fishing trip. Email any time with questions.

Hard takes, tight lines and screaming reels all summer. Good luck fly fishing Idaho and Montana.

I googled Teepee Creek and came across your blog entry. I saw an article on Teepee in Northwest Fly Fishing a few months ago and am thinking of making a trip this summer. I'm mostly retired and live in the Seattle area. I fish the St Joe, Kelly Creek and Montana each year. I love fishing for west slope cutthroat.

Is mid July a good time to fish Teepee? From what I've read it sounds like the NF of the Cour d'alene is also worth fishing.

Hey, I'd appreciate any comments or input.
