Now we are switching gears and are headed up on Dworshak for more great catching! At the moment Kokanee catching has been pretty good on days when the sun is out and weather patterns are stable. As spring finally arrives and days get warmer catching will just get even better! Smallmouth Bass catching will really start heating up in April when water temps heat up a little.  The way our Spring has been going, shouldn't take much for the water to start warming. Currently we have been experiencing day time high's in the 60's or close to it. A bit warmer then normal.
