Hayspur Hatchery News

Hayspur sign 10

As many of you know we at (FFI) have continued to upgrade the
campground and clean up Loving Creek over the years. Last years
effort was to provide and help install additional fire rings at the
campground, restore a sign, and stream work. Plans this year will
include more of the same. Joe and Brad are currently
working on the large sign that points to the Hatchery/
Campground off Highway 20. We determined that the old
sign was too rotten to repair so we are building a replacement. Special thanks to Joe Kotts and Brad Strawn on some fine wood working skills this was way over the top and should last the rest of our lifetimes, well done. D.S.


Cabin Fever Reliever

Posted in General on January 17, 2020 by flyfishersofidaho

Kids First Cast, Inc is holding a “Cabin Fever Reliever”. It is the 8th year of this event, that is primarily focused on outdoor activities for kids. Last year the event had approximately 3500 kids.

For the second year, I will be introducing fly fishing for the kids. I will bring some practice fly rods and hoops for the kids to cast into. Anyone who wishes to help, is more than welcome. Not only do the kids love trying to cast, they have a million questions.

The event is Saturday, February 8, 2020 from 10 am to 5pm. The Event is held at the Caldwell Events Center, 2207 Blaine St., Caldwell, ID 83605.

This event will primarily held inside, except for some vehicles and boats on display outside. The events include Archery, Casting, Fly Tying, Hunter Safety, Fast Pitch, Water Safety, Martial Arts and many more topics. It is a fun event for kids of all ages. For further information see http://www.kidsfirstcast.org
