No matter if you are a serious Angler looking for the Big One or you just want to take the kids for a sure fire fishing experience, North Idaho is the place for you.  You can get out the down riggers for those big fish in the depths of Lake Pend Orielle, cast your fly fishing rod on the many streams, or bundle up in the winter months for a little ice fishing.  No matter what your fishing style, Idaho aims to please.  The Panhandle Region has world class fishing and has produced 1/3 of the states record fish.

Lake Pend Orielle has a quite few all time state fish records such as the record for A 32 pound Dolly Varden,   A 37 pound Kamloops trout  and 6 pound 8 ounce Lake White fish all taken from Lake Pend Oreille.
