The Kootenai River - 6kcfs and going lower to 4k

Hoppers yeah. Rest of the year. Big bugs FLY FIRST UP TOP!

Heat has simmered down. We've got pleasant weather with fish looking up.

That Koot has plenty of cold water behind Libby dam. Water temps are 56 to 60 or so downstream. And it is fishing really good!. One if not the only fisheries doing well across the PNW. Fish EARLY or real late.

Still have openings in Sep and Oct. Give us a call and let us get you on the water!
