Can you believe it?  Spring has finally sprung! Boy what a winter! Here on the river we went from one of the wettest falls in a long time to one of the coldest December and January in a while to   trying to slide off the mad from all the rain and warm temps! Hopefully Mother Nature has decided to quit toying with us!

Boy we sure had an awesome Steelhead season! One of the best in a while! Hopefully it keeps up. Now we are turning a corner and getting into our Spring mode. This spring we are just getting started up on Dworshak Reservior. Looks to be a dandy! Kokanee catching has been pretty dang good! really nice size for this early in the year! Most are 10 to 13". Yes the limit is still 25 a day per angler.  If you spend enough time up there you can get your limit!

Pre spawn Smallmouth Bass is getting under way. That looks to be pretty good this year also! The Corps of Engineers are currently dropping the lake about 2ft a day. The plan is to be down to minimum pool (1455'  full is 1600') by late April. Currently they are gushing 25,000cfs out. If you know what and where they live when lake elevations drop like this, you can do pretty well.  If not it can be very frustrating!  Anyway that is what is going on.

Don't forget we have Spring Chinook catching just around the corner also! That is a fun one!

Currently we have room!

Catch A Tremendous

Fishing Experience!

As you can tell from some of the latest photo's, catching in 2013 has been pretty dang good! This Smallmouth just above weighed a solid 8+lbs! We saw quite a few fish that ended up being wall hangers!  What a great time we have been experiencing!    

Just remember, If you have to wait and hear catching is good, you probably missed the bite!
