General Information

Description - Idaho has more than 2,000 lakes with names, and thousands of others without names. Some of Idaho lakes can't be found on any map! Backcountry fly fishing and boating on the lakes are popular.

Attractions - Beautiful lakes and reservoirs formed by dams on Idaho's rivers are unequaled. Two of Idaho's northern lakes are said to be among the most beautiful in the world. Lake Coeur d'Alene and Lake Pend Oreille (the largest in the state with a surface area of 180 square miles). Both are large beautiful lakes in Bonner, Kootenai, and Benewah counties. Lake Coeur d'Alene is a popular resort area.

Recreation - Fly fishing is Idaho is world renowned. There are thousands of opportunities for canoeing and kayaking as well as other water sports.

Climate - The climate in Idaho varies with the elevation. The bottom of Hell's Canyon, Boise and other locations at low elevations receive hot summer weather. Temperatures at these elevations often reach 90 degrees or more during the summer months. At the same time the mountains will get mild temperatures with cool nights. Winters are just as extreme with the mountains experiencing extreme conditions and temperatures. An average of 500 inches of snow falls on the Idaho highlands. Temperatures are known to dip below zero degrees F on many winter nights. The lower elevations enjoy a more mild winter season with less precipitation than the mountains. The sun is a constant throughout the year. Be sure to wear sunscreen and layered clothing in Idaho's unpredictable weather.

Location - Maps and driving directions to each lake or reservoir are available at the individual wildernet.com description pages.
