Lewiston Idaho Fishing Report 01.10.2018

Idaho fishing report 12.15.17

The Clearwater (ID)

Blown out, the water went big on the ninth of January. All the way up to 17,400 cubic feet per second.

Grande Ronde River (WA)

Blown out: the water raised 1,000 CFS overnight just like the Clearwater. It sits at 2,950 CFS as I write this report.

Snake River (WA)

The Snake is still very high as it was last week. It sits at a rate of 31,400 CFS. We haven’t had any reports stating if the river has blown yet. If you’re eager to get out to cast and potentially catch, the Snake will be your best bet. Most of the fish will be tucked in tight to the bank, holding in water that provides them safety. Fishing a sink tip can be an option, yet I believe a floating line will be the best option as of now.  Fishing a fly with lots of movement can get the job done. Stay confident.
