With the high water fishing is very different this year. We recommend hitting lowland lakes or reservoirs.
  • We received an angler report from Marsing Pond. It is really good right now. Trout are hitting off of spinners like crazy.
  • We had a recent report from an angler who fished Paddock Reservoir recently. Fishing was a little spotty as the water hasn't warmed up much there yet. The fishing should pick up in the next couple of weeks. Boaters can still launch, and bank fishermen would do well to wear a pair of waders and get off the back a little bit. Bass are going for spinner baits and soft plastics. Have a great time fishing!
Kokanee Anglers
If you are kokanee fishing Lucky Peak know that the Iron Man competition has closed the ramp near the dam Tuesday, June 7 through the race Saturday June 11. Put in at Lucky Peak State Park. Recent reports show that kokanee fishing is picking up and fish are being caught near the surface to 20 feet.
Fly Fishing Anglers
It is no surprise that we still have very high water conditions in rivers and streams. The Owyhee River and South Fork Boise Rivers are blown out and flowing at 4,000 CFS and 3,500 CFS respectively
