Lake Creek, Bull River, Yaak River & Small Streams. NOW!

All the small stuff is either single man craft or walk wade now.

Lake Creek is in great shape. Lots of water for this summer. It's holding great fish and folks in the cabins continue to turn in great reports.

The Bull is only floatable in single man craft through the meadows sections now.

Yaak is still cool enough but too low to float.

Bull Lake...Smallies and Pike!

Pike are everywhere but the smallies are in the shallows. Kokanee time. Summer mode now.

Mountain Lakes:

Thawed. Little lakes good to go all altitudes.
