   The following information is compiled from regional Fish and Game fishery managers, local tackle shops and anglers.

Lochsa and Selway rivers

   Fishing is very good for cutthroat and rainbow trout on the Lochsa and Selway rivers. Early morning is recommended. For fly fishing anglers can try attractors like Royal Wulffs or Stimulator patterns. Also try PMD's and Caddis patterns. Bead Head nymphs are a good mid-day fly.

Clearwater Region

   In the Clearwater region, Fenn Pond, Karolyn's Pond and Orofino Creek were all stocked Aug. 2, with 9 to 11 inch rainbow trout, releasing between 500-1000 fish at each site.

Dworshak Reservoir

   Look for some outstanding kokanee fishing through mid-August, when most of the larger spawners start to head up the North Fork. As the summer progresses; the fishing is usually better in the upper portions of the reservoir. Our latest kokanee population surveys have again shown good numbers of fish this spring. The fish have been averaging 8-10 inches. Rainbow and cutthroat trout can be caught this time of year in the reservoir, with better catches coming from the upper portions of the lake.
