The Water


Thousands of years ago, massive glaciers carved the dramatic landscape of Northern Idaho. Today, water shapes the landscape in no less impressive fashion: from the boundless depths of Lake Pend Oreille to the tiny, glacier-scooped lakes of the Selkirks; from the broad channels of the Kootenai River to the burbling streams and creeks of the Cabinets. It is a pristine, wild waterscape that attracts outdoor enthusiasts of all stripes, whether it is anglers searching for big fish in Lake Pend Oreille or pan fish in the alpine lakes; kayakers and paddlers cruising the Clark Fork and Kootenai Rivers; or, wakeboarders and water skiers chasing high-speed thrills on Lake Pend Oreille.
