More Info
Clark Fork Full-day Float:

ROW offers a full day fly fishing float trip on this beautiful Western Montana river that begins its course near Butte MT and flows northwest approximately 275 miles, where it eventually feeds into Lake Pend Orielle in North Idaho.

The Clark Fork offers excellent rainbow, cutthroat, and brown trout fishing only 100 miles East of Coeur d’Alene on I-90. The Clark Fork is known for holding fish in excess of 20 inches, and our professional guides will be sure to put you in ideal locations with effective flies in order to make your trip a success.

Dry-fly fishing can be phenomenal on this Montana gem, with hatches including stone flies, may flies, caddis, and terrestrials. March Brown, Baetis and Skwala hatches are plentiful in the spring. Summer months often see excellent Green Drake, Golden Stone, PMD and Caddis hatches. Early fall is a great time for dry fly fishing as well, with Mahoganies, Caddis, and Fall Drakes being common hatches. Nymph and streamer fishing is productive year round and is an excellent way to hook into a “trophy” Montana trout.

Coeur d'Alene Fishing | Frequently Asked Questions


When to Go:

While ROW offers year round trips on the Coeur d'Alene River, the season typically peaks between early spring and the end of November. This particular river is an angler's dream come true, producing high catch rates throughout the season.

What to Bring:

The following list has been created based on years of experience! Most summer days in north Idaho are usually hot and sunny, making a swimsuit or shorts, T-shirt and tennis shoes the only necessary items. However, when cooler weather is forecasted, a set of polypropylene underwear and a wool or nylon pile sweater provide the warmth and protection needed to ensure optimum comfort on the river. Our guides prefer the combination of polypro underwear with a pair of nylon shorts over the top on cool days. When the temperature drops even lower, adding a nylon sweater is wise. Precipitation can come at any time in north Idaho, making raingear a necessity no matter when you visit this beautiful region. As it tends to retain moisture and wick heat away from your body, avoid clothes made from cotton materials while on our river excursions.

For Warm Days:

Sun screen and sun hat

Nylon shorts or swimsuit

Camera and film

Tennis or athletic shoes

Headstrap for glasses

Personal water bottle - optional


For Cool Days:

Polypropylene underwear is highly recommended

Wool sweater or synthetic pile top

Rain gear
