FISHING — Sean Visintainer of Silver Bow Fly Shop in Spokane Valley has produced a series of informational fly fishing videos that take the mystery out of rigging up and presenting flies to trout in the pre-runoff shoulder season.
This one's titled: Fly Fishing NF Coeur d'Alene / St Joe River - Pre-Runoff Rigs / Flies.
Most of the fishing before it warms up will be nymph or streamer rigs, but as spring progresses the dry fly fishing will pick up too. Both the NF Coeur d'Alene and St. Joe Rivers get good hatches of bwo's, March browns, gray drakes, and skwala stones. Even if the hatches are not intense it can still get fish up.
