Where do you fish when the creeks too high?  Try your local reservoir.  Those wanting out of the Treasure Valley can venture to a place like Cascade or Horsethief reservoirs.  There's just enough open-water to bank fish using spinners or bait.  Hungry trout and perch are following the shoreline after regaining their appetite from the long winter. 

As an added attraction - big game can still be seen at lower elevations, the sandhill cranes are already standing in the meadows and hundreds of snow geese are flying over-head.

This is indeed, the Idaho experience!!
