Steamboat Pond, Shoshone County, Idaho

Fishing Pond

Steamboat Pond is a small fishing pond next to the North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene River and the location where Steamboat Creek enters the river (thus its name). Steamboat Creek is actually across the Coeur d'Alene River from the pond, which does not touch the creek at all. This is a great pond to catch rainbow trout from. The pond has high banks with some eroded areas to walk down next to the water. There is no path around the pond, but there is an accessible dock with a paved path. In late summer and fall when the water is lower the pond becomes two ponds with ample fish in both. Directions: From I90 take the Kingston Exit 43. Traveling north on Forest Highway 2 to mile marker 11, turn left into the Steamboat Pond gravel parking lot (there is a sign). Info: There is an accessible restroom but no running water.
