Small Mouth Bass fishing on the Clearwater River is Red Hot. This is the time to go fishing before the water cools and the fish migrate back down to Lewiston.
5,099 steelhead have passed over Lower Granite Dam. These are mostly A-run fish attracted to the confluence of the Clearwater and the Snake rivers by the cool water coming from Dworshak Reservoir. They congregate near Lewiston. As these fish continue to funnel through, expect August to be a great month for catch and release steelhead fishing.
