Tried with several setups; wedding ring with jack lloyd baited with corn, green squid, several little fish baits, salmon eggs,and kokanee killers. not a single bite. Didnt see any other fishers pulling anything out either. I was doing low budget canoe trolling at several depths up to 120\' from wolf lodge bay, beauty bay, blue creek bay and down the main stretch. As the sun was setting, we saw probably a hundred as they were jumping, coming up to the surface, you could see their bellies flashing in the fading sunlight. Still not a bite. A couple lines up toward the surface, we were hoping to just hook one randomly as we were going back to dock. Skunked, but at least we didnt see other fishers pulling in fish after fish to add to the insult. October 1 2012 10am-7pm

10-27-2011 While fishing for Chinook Salmon in Wolf Lodge Bay is slow, I caught 13 Kokanee at 30' useing the traditional red wedding ring in front of a 3 blade Jack Lloyd set-up all on a down rigger. I was also set-up with a green dodger and mini squid at 80' for the Chinook. Chinooks were not hitting on this but a few of the Kokanee did.

Fishing for Pike is slow. Find shallow weedy areas were smaller bait fish are found. Fish a depth about 3-10 foot. This should turn up a pike or two. Fish slow using suspending rapala type baits. Buck tail spinners seem effective now.
Coeur D Alene Lake Largemouth Bass Rating:
3.5
Coeur D Alene Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 60 degrees. The large female bass will be on the beds and holding tight. Spawning bass won't be feeding aggressively at this water temperature but they will be catchable. In addition, all bass don't spawn at the exact same time or water temperature. If you aren't a site fisherman, you should be able to find some larger females and male largemouth on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding so fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.

Coeur D Alene Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- July 9th, small mouth are hitting off green rubber worms with a red hook in the
middle just off the shores of Higgens Bay.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The smallmouth bass spawn is in full swing now. Fishing will become slower but won't turn off completely. If you are fishing for female bass go with plastics and really slow your presentation and stay around the spawning beds. You should be able to find some larger females and male bass on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding and the fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again. Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!
Coeur D Alene Lake Crappie Rating:

Coeur D Alene Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie spawn should be really heating up now. Crappie prefers to spawn on gravel bottom typically with brush and/or emergent vegetation for cover. If the lake is void of gravel bottoms, find the rocks or rip rap. Crappie will use the larger structure rocks for cover. Cast some small grub baits in the shallows looking for the spawning crappie. Good luck today!
Coeur D Alene Lake Walleye Rating:

Coeur D Alene Lake Walleye Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- No walleye in this lake
Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The walleye are coming off of the spawn now. Fish will be feeding very more aggressive making up for lost time eating during the spawn. Walleye will start moving back to their typical structure of choice and should be getting into the lake flats and deep structure. It?s time to hit the water. This may be the best water temperature to be on the water. There shouldn?t be too many fishermen on the water this early and there are many species that are hitting their prime water temperatures to be biting very well. Have fun today!

Coeur D Alene Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The water temperature is climbing and the catfish will start becoming more active now. The catfish spawn is right around the corner and generally all catfish species will be looking to spawn. Blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish spawn in much the same areas. Mostly spawning in deep tree lay downs that have lots of shade, holes in the bank, sunken barrels and tires. With baitfish becoming active, it?s time to catch some small sunfish, bluegill, shad and frogs and getting the line in the water.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
