The Idaho Fisherman – Lake Pend Oreille Fishing Trips – About Lake Pend Oreille


Lake Pend Oreille, World renowned for its giant Rainbow Trout, is once again making waves throughout the angling world. Our 2017 season is proof that this resource is worthy of your time. The fighting abilities of our rainbows are simply phenomenal.  Huge jumps, surface explosions, and long line burning runs are the trademark of these stunning acrobats. Our average rainbow in 2017 weighed 10 to 18 pounds, with numerous fish landed that weighed in the low to mid 20 pound class. Prime time for these beauties is October, through mid December. Lake Pend Oreille also offers, lake trout/mackinaw, german brown, and catch & release fishing for bull trout, and west slope cutthroat trout. In addition to this great lineup of targets, we also have a healthy population of walleye, smallmouth bass, northern pike, and jumbo yellow perch. Spring through summer provides your best opportunity to catch these yummy treats.
