Fishing this past week on Idaho’s Clearwater River was fantastic. On the Clearwater we fish for Idaho outfitter Reel Time Fishing. With the warmer weather of the week (temps in the low 40’s and upper 30’s with some sunshine) we saw much more consistent fishing. My boat had double digit hook ups everyday we were out, and even had two customers limit out on Friday. Speaking of Friday’s customers, they were January’s winner of our monthly free trip giveaway!

Again we had our best success side drifting with both bait and pegged beads, with a 70% to 30% favoring the beads.
All of the fishing effort is still takeoff place below the North Fork, as the upper river is still very impacted by ice.
Now through the end of February is our absolute favorite time to fish the Clearwater and we have quite a few openings over the next 6 weeks.
Give us a call or text for availability at 208-861-0654, but all final booking will go through Reel Time Fishing.
