I understand Moscow and Pullman are both known as "college towns". That said, are fly fishing and hunting common recreation in that area? I see there are a few sporting goods stores and a fly shop in Moscow, which suggests at least SOME people there are into these things. What is the access to hunting like near Moscow compared to further North in CdA/ Post Falls and also further South in the greater Boise area? Thank you for your input.

A lot of people won't share much about hunting / fishing places til they know you, if then. Good to trade, places you know or maybe beer.

I'm not asking WHERE people hunt/ fish, I'm asking IF people hunt/ fish anywhere in the area. I apologise if my question was misleading and it sounded as though I was asking for spots. I'm looking to move somewhere that has reasonable access to these things. Currently I live in a place that has extremely poor access. I would like to live somewhere where I do not have to drive 6 hours.

It's very easy to look at a good map of Idaho. If there are rivers or lakes close, there will be fishing.


Hunting is a bit more tricky. You can't hunt on private property without permission. So for close by hunting, get a US Forest Service map and note where the federally owned forest lands and grasslands are located. You will be able to hunt there with the proper permits.


There are National Grasslands, where motorized vehicles are not allowed, by the way. But most grasslands, prairie, and badlands that are government owned are usually BLM land. That would be where you do your bird hunting. That information about where those are located is all available on maps

From Moscow, most of your fishing and hunting choices will be at least 1-2 hours away but some decent options may be closer. Drive 4 hours and there are more options. It may not be 1st tier great and convenient but it is probably 2nd tier.

Thank you very much woodsmoke, this is very helpful! For fishing I am interested in finding wadable rivers which has been a little harder to do with just a map. Any tips for this?

Thank you, this was the type of information I was looking for.

Another reason I asked is because I will be looking to make some friends who are into hunting and fishing. Where I live presently, very few people are.

The Gundog Forum has a lot of members located in Idaho, if you are interested in hunting birds with dogs.


ifish dot net has a few members in Idaho, although mostly it is members along the coast of Oregon and Washington. If nothing else, many of the people there would have fished in Idaho even if it isn't their normal fishing area. A bunch of nice people on that forum. There is a subforum for hunting.
