Smallmouth / Largemouth Bass and Northern Pike are the primary targets in this diverse fishery. If boating, put in behind the post office in Cusick and search out navigable sloughs (on the non-reservation side of the river) and lines of weed beds along the banks. Sight fish or cast into and around structure on the bank that hangs into the water, alongside weedbeds, and around drop-offs. Big nasties and articulated streamers are where it's at - and don't forget steel leader if you want to keep some of the flies you're throwing in the water. A 9-10 foot 6wt will suffice, but we recommend using at least a 7wt, preferably an 8wt.
