Print Article


Special to

the News-Press

It feels like summer in North Idaho and anglers across the region have been enjoying the nice weather and bountiful fishing opportunities on our many lakes, ponds and streams. To add to the fun, more than 32,000 rainbow trout sized between 10 to 12 inches are set to be stocked in Panhandle waterbodies this June.

With Free Fishing Day on June 8, there’s no excuse not to take advantage of these freshly stocked trout. No fishing license is needed anywhere in Idaho. All other fishing regulations still apply.
