Idaho Outdoors fishing report: Wednesday, Sept. 9

The Snake is still going strong for smallmouth bass, channel and flathead catfish, sturgeon and more. Fish around the weeds with soft plastics or a night crawler and the bass fishing can be fantastic. I had some smallmouth luck near Celebration Park this week and I’ve heard good reports on channel cats below Swan Falls Dam, flatheads in the Steck Park area and largemouth bass and perch near C.J. Strike and other Snake River reservoirs. And for steelhead anglers, the Snake is open from the Washington state line at the confluence of the Snake and Clearwater rivers upstream to Hells Canyon Dam.
