Planning tips and tools for fishing Idaho backcountry alpine lakes

Idaho offers over 3,000 fishable alpine lakes across the state that offer great fishing, solitude and scenery. In this seminar, we will talk about several web-based tools that can help you plan your next alpine lake adventure. We will demonstrate how to use the Idaho Fishing Planner to find stocking records, find free topographic maps, measure trail distances and find lakes with specific species. We will also offer some advice on equipment, fishing tackle and trip ideas from beginning to advanced.
