Horsethief Reservoir Seeks Summer Host

Horsethief Reservoir is a summer weekend fishing destination for thousands of Idahoans.

But the right person could spend the remainder of the summer there in 2013, serving as host for the Fish and Game-owned reservoir and camping area.

"We're looking for a person or persons to meet and greet the camping public throughout the summer and serve as ambassadors for the Department of Fish and Game," recreation site maintenance foreman Dennis Hardy said. "Providing information, troubleshooting for campers and gently enforcing area rules are just some of the duties associated with the position."

Applications are being accepted for the position of camp host at the popular recreation site. This is an unpaid, volunteer position, and applicants must have a fully self-contained recreational vehicle. A small per diem is offered to help hosts defer some expenses.

Located just east of Cascade, the 260-acre site is situated within a forested area, giving it a high-mountain-lake appearance. Horsethief is managed as a rainbow trout fishery and is a popular summer destination for anglers and other recreationalists.
