    Return to Duck Valley -- October Outing

    Friday October, 19th to Sunday October 21st.

    For the past few years BVFF has hosted an outing in April to Duck Valley. We have learned a great deal about the lake and the quality of fishing in the series of lakes. We have also heard that fall fishing can be outstanding; now is the time to find out with this outing. So let’s return to DV for Fall Fishing.

    Our October, 10/11/2018, meeting topic is, “Duck Valley Fishing: Now and the Future.” What a great opportunity to leverage our past experience and this outstanding program.

    Please review the following link to learn more about the area and the fishing conditions.

    https://shopaitribes.org/spfish/fishing.html

    We will be camping at Mt.View Lake. I will be at spot 12 starting Friday. On Saturday night we will host a pot luck dinner and share the lessons learned from our “Fall Trip to Duck Valley”. Remember you need to call for reservations for RV spots with power. Other spots are open. Also, a final point is that this is late October and the weather is changing. Duck Valley is famous for challenging weather patterns.

    Hope to see you at the BVFF meeting and if you can make this outing!

    South Fork Boise Dam Raise November 8 Open House

    What: The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) is considering raising the Anderson Ranch Dam on the South Fork of the Boise River. On November 8th, BOR will be holding an open house event to provide information.

    Location: The event will take place at the Wyndham Garden Boise Airport hotel, 3300 S. Vista Ave.

    Date/Time: November 8th from 6:00pm – 7:30pm with a short presentation beginning promptly at 6:00pm.

    (NOTE:  This meeting conflicts with the monthly BVFF general meeting.)

    Why should you attend? A law passed at the end of 2016 gives Reclamation the authority, and likely the funding, to proceed directly to construction upon completion of the study. Therefore, this is the time for you to express to BOR the importance of the South Fork of the Boise River fishery to you and to find out more information and ask questions such as –

    • How would this dam raise impact winter flows for fish both in the South Fork and the Boise River through town?
    • Will spring flushing flows be protected?
    • How much will it cost to raise the dam and will other, possibly less expensive, alternatives be considered such as water conservation or efficiency projects?
    • Will opportunities to provide additional storage for fisheries flows be considered?

    If you have questions please email Kira Finkler at Kira.Finkler@tu.org or call Kira, Michael Gibson, or Peter Anderson at the Trout Unlimited national office, at 208.345.9800.

    Background information is available on the BOR website:

    Boise Valley Fly Fishers present

    WESTERN IDAHO FLY FISHING EXPO 2019

    Jan 11-12, 2019

    • Indoors Spey Casting plus traditional casting ponds
    • Over 70 Exhibitors
    • Fly Tying Theater plus over 40 active tiers
    • Friday night social hour
    • Much more!

    The Boise Valley Fly Fishers are pleased to announce the 14th Annual Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo to be held on January 11-12, 2019.  The 2018 two day show had attendance of over 2,500 with over 70 exhibitors and numerous educational programs. 

    The event will be held at Expo Idaho (www.expoidaho.com) in Garden City, Idaho, with two indoor casting ponds: a single handed casting and a two-handed Spey casting pond.  Demonstration fly tying and a fly tying theater will showcase the art and skills of creating hand-tied flies.  Educational presentations on fly fishing by local and national experts.

    We will continue the Friday night social hour with a live band to enhance our 15th annual show. Current EXPO details can be found at BVFFExpo.com

    The Boise Valley Fly Fishers is the oldest fly fishing organization in Idaho, founded in 1971. The Boise metropolitan area has grown significantly in the past few years, and so has the local interest in fly fishing.  Our mission to promote the sport of fly-fishing through education and conservation activities is dependent upon a successful Expo. Instruction in fly tying, casting, and fly fishing ethics has been the foundation of this event.  We plan to expand our educational workshops this year, while continuing a wide range of dynamic lectures.
