The first week in October I enjoyed four full days of fishing the Coeur d'Alene Basin.  Fishing with my good friend Stew Colpitts from Hayden Lake, we covered several streams including the North fork of the Coeur D’Alene River above Prichard and below Jordan Camp.  This is prime territory for really nice Westslope cutthroat.  While there were few fish rising, we had great success using orange stimulators, Royal Trudes, and Blue Wing Olives.  Half the time I was fishing with a dropper (small Copper John and either a BWO or Adams.)  The Cutts averaged 15” plus and we each caught and released an average of 10 to 15 fish a day.
