Coeur d'Alene River, Idaho

Coeur d’Alene flows into the Lake Coeur d’Alene in the State of Idaho from the Silver Valley and it is a thirty-seven mile-long River. Its stream maintains its flow out of the Lake Coeur d’Alene and transforms into the Spokane River. The locals called this stream `The Lead Creek’ as there was an abundance of lead in the river in the Kellogg area as a result of the Bunker Hill Smelter which fashioned both lead and silver and it was strained to conform to the environmental controls which came out in the nineteen seventies. This has become an attractive destination for water sports like swimming, skiing and tubing for the locals.


Coeur d’Alene fly fishing trips give several miles of access as a mountain river, just forty minutes away from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. For fishing enthusiasts, the West Slope Cutthroat is the native species and the river is famous for this catch. The fishing season is dominant from mid May through to the end of September, but in some years you may come across pre runoff occasions for fishing.
