    Silver Creek Outing

    Outing Sponsor:    Bob Harder

    PLEASE REGISTER  NO LATER THAN JUNE 18, 2020

    The June BVFF outing will be at Silver Creek, near Sun Valley.   Early season fishing can often mean high water flows on the rivers, so a spring creek is a good destination choice.  Silver Creek can be challenging, but is always a great place to be.

    Alternatively Silver Creek is easy striking distance from other waters, including:

    • Big Wood River
    • Magic Reservoir, and its outlet
    • Big Lost River (~ 1+ hr)

    The group will be camping at the Idaho Fish & Game campground at the Hayspur Fish Hatchery, just off highway 20—about 8 miles past the junction of Highway 20 and Highway 75 (North side). The camp ground is a large grass meadow with a few small trees (Beware: Russian Olive trees for those with allergies), and can accommodate tents, campers, or small trailers. There is water available, and  vault toilets. It is first come, first served for space, and with no fee.

    For those with RV’s desiring hook-up services, the store in Picabo runs/manages an RV site, located across the road from the store in Picabo, and has a few rooms available.

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

    There are also limited camping spots at Idaho Sportsman access points (Point of Rocks), East, and West.

    Picabo Angler is located inside the Picabo store, and has a full line of fly fishing tackle. The store also serves food.

    Picabo Angler has been an exhibitor at the Western Idaho FF Expo for several years now. Picabo Angler also has a live webcam of the creek outside their shop HERE.

    THE PLAN

    • Saturday June 20
    • No BVFF sponsored Potluck
    • We encourage "social-distancing"
    • Many will go over Thursday or Friday and stay through Sunday
    Twilight: (June 20):  9:57 pm
    Sunset:  (June 20):  9:19 pm

    [June 19 is the summer solstice-- longest daylight of the year]

    Those wishing to catch the late afternoon hatch before sunset can do so.

    THE FISHING

    Hayspur camp ground is in relative close proximity to a number of access points on Silver Creek:
    • West Silver Creek Access
    • Nature Conservancy Silver Creek Preserve (Remember to sign in at the hut)
    • Point of Rocks
    • East Silver Creek Access
    • Hwy 20 Bridge
    See Silver Creek Map HERE

    Floating Silver Creek 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.  The creek is relatively shallow in most places, so when floating, wear wading boots, but not flippers.  The creek can be busy, so good etiquette and consideration to fellow anglers is always appreciated.

    South Fork of the Snake River, Swan Valley, Idaho

    BVFF is reaching out with our special August outing as we will be going to Swan Valley for fishing on the South Fork of the Snake River.  Please note:  This is a 5 hour car trip from Boise.

    We will use the Rendezvous at the South Fork RV Park as our base.

    http://www.campsouthfork.com/

    The park has RV, tent, and cabin rentals.  We recommend you call today to reserve your spot at 208-483- CAMP, or at another campground.

    Another RV park, close to this location is:

    Sleeping Bear RV Park

    https://www.campgroundreviews.com/regions/idaho/swan-valley/sleepy-bear-rv-park-254963#parkOverview

    Fishing on the South fork of the Snake in August is a prime time on the river.  This is a famed drift boat area, however there are numerous locations for wading fishing.

    Bob will be using the registration list to email you with updates and fishing tips.

    We are asking everyone to practice social distancing and we are NOT having a BVFF sponsored Potluck.

    Now is the time to plan for this trip, below is a link that will give you current conditions and valuable fishing tips.

    September Outing:  McCall, ID Area Waters

    Host:  Tom Old

    One of the greatest places in Idaho is the McCall area in the early fall.  We are planning our September outing to the McCall area.  Based on the weather and those that can attend we will look at areas to fish like:

    • Boulder Lake
    • Louie Lake
    • Little Payette Lake
    • The Payette River
    • Brundage Reservoir
    • Or others


    We will adjust our fishing based on the group input.  We do no all have to go on the same trip as there are many opportunities in the area.

    Current plans:

    Friday, lake fishing at Little Payette Lake. We will start around 10.  This is an interesting lake with small mouth bass, trout, kokanee and tiger musky. You will need a float tube, kayak, or canoe to access most of the water. We can bring extra float tubes to the lake if you let us know in advance.

    Saturday we are looking at a hike to a high mountain lake --- or you can fish the closer river or lakes.

    On this trip, we do not have a central campsite.  There are many camp sites, hotels and possible cabins in the area.  We will be staying at the: Wyndham Time Share.

    WorldMark McCall

    We will be practicing social distancing guidelines and at this time we do not plan on a BVFF Sponsored potluck.  

    It is fall in McCall and the weather is changing.  The lows look like in the middle 30’s and the highs in the mid 60’s.

    Hope to see you in McCall!  Please call if you have any questions or the ‘hot spot’ for fishing in McCall.
