Coeur d'Alene River Description

A beautiful mountain river with many miles of great public access a short 40 minutes from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. West Slope Cutthroat are the native species and the river is catch and release only on these pretty fish. There is some pre runoff fishing most years but the season is best from mid May through the end of September. There is an excellent gallery of photos on the photo sharing website,, ...

Techniques & Tips

Go small and black and have 6x at the ready. Cutthroats are educated this time of year and a little stealth will go a long way.

7-Day Forecast

Fishing has slowed down in the last few days. Hopefully another rainy system moving in gets this river going again. The St. Joe or Clark Fork might be a better option right now.
