Panhandle Region

The Panhandle of Idaho boasts three of Idaho’s big lakes and fish-filled rivers. These northern waters are home to coldwater native fish like Westslope cutthroat and bull trout, as well as tiger muskie, lake trout, kokanee, chinook, and bass. Eight of Idaho’s 11 big game animals can be found in North Idaho – white-tailed and mule deer, elk, mountain goat, moose, black bear, mountain lion, and wolves. The area is an outdoor enthusiasts playground.

Elevations in the Panhandle range from 1750 feet on the Kootenai River at the Canadian border to 7709 feet in the Selkirks.
