Duck Valley Camp Sights

Posted in General on April 16, 2022 by flyfishersofidaho

Hello all, I have compiled photos for the Mountain View campground sights which are numbered 1 through 18 minus 16 which I seemed to have missed. These are the powered electrical sights. I will follow up on that one. Aerial drone shots with a topdown view will be added when the weather cooperates. Don’t forget our meeting on April 21 6:30 at the Fish and Game Building Downtown Boise.The program this month will be our very own Tom Rogers discussing his recent trip to Patagonia. D. Sherron

Hi everyone.  This is not the April Flyline but is newsworthy. Idaho 2 Fly is  local non profit who hosts 3 retreats each year for men with cancer or have survived cancer.  These are 2-3 day events

held in the Copper Basin and the Ashton area. Anyway, Idaho 2 Fly hosts a fund raiser  called a Fly Derby at a private pond near Eagle. This years date is Saturday June 4,  2022.  The fee to attend costs $500.00 and includes lunch.  Fly Fishers of Idaho has purchased  a ticket and will

be selling Raffle tickets for $10.00 ea. You may purchase as many tickets as you want.  So, if you are interested come to the April meeting (21st)  at Fish and Game and bring your checkbook.

More information is available – visit  www.idaho2fly.org

Watch for the April Flyline – coming late next week.

thanks, Brad

The daily rate is $18.00 for fishing and ten for camping in non electrical site’s, more cost effective for the yearly pass. Now onto booking an an electrical site this has been contracted out to a vender called Bookyoursight.com you will need to regester and set up an account. A few bugs are being worked out to pick the numbered sights when you checkout. A rebate will be given later for season pass holders on those electrical sights.

Roadside Cleanup / Fish Out Sat, Oct 26

Posted in General on October 23, 2019 by flyfishersofidaho

Hi Everyone,

 

I have spoken to the weather gods and the best they can do is 55 degrees and mostly sunny. So we are on for our fall highway cleanup and fish out.

Like I said before in an earlier email, we’ll meet at Stage Stop Restaurant about 9 am, have coffee, breakfast, tell lies, etc., and around 10 am head out to mile post 113 outside of Mtn Home. I’ll have all the equipment with me to pick up trash; signs, bags, vests, etc. After we finish, those that want to go fish (like me) can head to the south fork and meet up. I usually like to start down past cow creek bridge, good fishing on that section.

I’ll be bringing my small grill to heat up a late lunch, anyone is welcome¬†to use it if they want to do the same.

As usual if you have any questions or concerns, you can call or text me at 208-371-3958 or email me.

 

And I’m told the south fork Boise is hot right now!!

 

See you on saturday morning!!

 

Randy
