    Date:                     May 21-22, 2016

    Host: BVFF Board

    Where: Bruneau Sand Dunes

    This event is a BVFF sponsored event in collaboration with the WFFID women’s fly fishing club!

    *****  SEE  IMPORTANT UPDATE BELOW  ************

    We have group campsite #31. We have room for 30 people in tents. There is a $5 entrance fee/vehicle/day and an extra vehicle fee of $5/night. If you have the Idaho Park Pass, you get into the park for free.

    This is a great family time and social event with large Bluegill and Bass fishing. Besides the pond at the sand dunes there is excellent fishing at the Snake River, Cove Arm, Crane Falls, Bruneau River and CJ Strike Reservoir. Bring your float tube or pontoon boat. In the past Pico Spiders, Pico Blanco’s (aka Blanco Pico), white spiders, small bass plugs, mouse patterns, and Stayner Ducktails have been productive, but check with the local fly shops for recommended flies.

    We will meet Friday night for a social gathering at group site #31 in the Broken Wheel Campground after fishing. Bring a chair and your favorite beverage. Wild and unbelievable fishing tails are guaranteed to be told with conviction and gusto.

    ************ IMPORTANT UPDATE  **************

    We will not be partnering with the Women Fly Fishers of Idaho (WFFI) this year. The WFFI schedules their Bruneau outing the week after Mothers Day and we (BVFF) schedule our outings for the 3rd weekend of the month. Most years the weekends overlap, except for this year. The clubs did not catch this discrepancy until after all the reservations were made and locked in. Connie and I apologize for this oversight and each club will have their outing on separate weekends this year. BVFF will have a pot luck on Saturday night at our group campsite (site #31).  The club will provide the hot dogs and hamburgers with buns and condiments and an assortment of beverages. Please register so we know how much food and drinks to bring. 

    Pot Luck Dinner:  5:30 PM

    ********************************************

    If you need a campsite for yourself you will need to reserve a site right away because the campgrounds fill up quickly. You can reserve your campsite online at: http://parksandrecreation.idaho.gov/.

    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 4 miles east of the junction with Highway 75.  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.
    Motel accommodations are available nearby in Picabo (very limited) and in Bellvue or Hailey.

    For complete details and maps please see this document

    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.
