PLEASE REGISTER IF YOU ARE ATTENDING SO WE HAVE AN ACCURATE PLAN FOR THE POTLUCK DINNER ON SATURDAY 

The BVFF outing for June will take us to the famous spring creek waters of Silver Creek, a favorite spot for the Hemingways (Ernest and son Jack), and a destination known by many anglers around the world.  BVFF's last outing to the creek was in 2014.

For those choosing to camp, we will be staying at the Idaho F&G campgrounds at the Hayspur Fish Hatchery, just off Highway 20, about 8 miles east of the junction with Highway 75 on the North side.  [A few RVers are planning to stay at the new RV site in Picabo-- see below]  The camp ground is a large grass meadow with a few small trees, and can accommodate tents or small trailers.  There is water available, and a vault toilet.  It is first come, first served for space.
There are also limited camping spots at Idaho Sportsman access points (Point of Rocks), East, and West.

--------  UPDATE  RV'ers take notice--------------

This year a new RV site is available, located across the highway from the store in Picabo, and is run/managed by them.

  • 17 RV sites w/ power and water $25/night
  • 10% discount for Good Sam members
  • 1 dump site
  • For reservations call 208.788.3536

----------------------------------------------------------
Motel accommodations are also available nearby in Picabo (very limited) and in Bellvue or Hailey.

NOTE:  Floating Silver Creek in the Nature Conservancy area is a great way to fish the creek.  However, be aware that Idaho Fish & Game regulations REQUIRE that you use a float tube--  one that places you down in the water.  Pontoon style kick boats do not meet this requirement.
