Trout Fishing Trips

Priest Lake Only

Lake Pend Orielle and Priest Lake are the go to locations for big trout in the Pacific Northwest. Priest Lake has the state record for Lake trout at 47 lbs, and Lake Pend Orielle has the state record for Kamloop Rainbow trout at 37 lbs.  Fins & Feathers is the authority on fishing in the pacific northwest especially the Idaho Panhandle.  

Trout fishing in the lakes in North Idaho is some of the best in the world. The lakes we run guided trips on hold the state records for Gerrard Rainbow trout, and Mackinaw Lake Trout. They can get big and all put up a good fight. People travel from far away to try and hook into one of these monsters.  From large Rainbows that jump out of the water multiple times, and can pull 100’ of line in no time; to big lake trout that fight, dive to the bottom, and won’t come up.

Depending on the time of year we will troll with flies on the surface, or Hot Spot Apex, or plugs deeper. Some folks will also run flashers with flies or hoochies much like targeting Salmon. If you hook into one of these big boys you need to be patient or you they will snap your line; most folks run 15 to 20 lb line or leaders.
