Since I'm usually too busy to fish in the summer, I was wondering if there are any trout fishing opportunities in the Kootenai River drainage during winter? Thank you.
Unless otherwise noted, all streams and lakes are open year-round in Idaho now. The Kootenai River is open all winter, as is the Moyie. Both have some very good trout fishing. There are lots of lakes in the Kootenai drainage as well that offer trout fishing opportunities all year. Smith, Bonner, Brush, and Robinson are all stocked with hatchery trout.
