Well Spring is finally here!  Yahoooooo!!!!!

Now that the weather has become a bit more normal, it is time to talk about this spring - summer catching.

First of all: Dworshak has been giving up some pretty nice smallmouth bass as of lately! Last weekends tournament gave up almost a 5 fish bag of 19+ lbs. Pretty dang good for these weird weather conditions. Currently the lake is at 1662 elevation. 38' below full pool. By late May should be full. At this elevation, lake is perfect for bass catching! These warmer days have them coming back into shallow water for Pre- Spawn ( the time for Giants). Also a great time for some pretty good Rainbow catching and even a Crappie or 2. Kokanee is getting really good also. Of all the Salmon species these are probably the best eating!  Currently we have some room! You will have to contact us to see where you can fit in.

As for Spring Chinook:

This year isn't looking very promising......   Chinook Salmon counts at Bonneville Dam way down river are very far behind. Currently the Columbia and Snake rivers are very High and Muddy! Visibilty down there has been under 6". They are going to have a very hard time finding their way! Hopefully they don't get lost...

The Clearwater river this year has a quota of just over 450 total for the sportsman . Pretty sad! Not why there is even going to be a season. This quota could be filled in just a couple weekends. Here on The Clearwater we have a 4 day a week season. Thursday thru Sunday. The Crappy part of this is that in that 4 day week, you the sportsman can only keep 1 adult per week. You can fish the rest of the time after you harvest your adult for jacks. So far there 7 jacks over Bonneville.

I definetly wouldn't get my Salmon tag just yet! The next 2 weeks are going to be the deciding factor on counts. Lets hope things improve...

Currently we have room!
