Magic Valley Fishing

I would like to know if there are any trout in Clover Creek and/or King Hill Creek? Also if there are trout in Salmon Creek Falls below the reservoir but upstream of Lily Grade? Thanks.


Dear Mr. Arnett,
Yes, there are trout in Upper Clover Creek, King Hill Creek, and Salmon Falls Creek upstream from Lily Grade.  These trout are native Redband Trout. They are relatively small and typically look slightly different than your standard hatchery Rainbow Trout. They typically have more red along their side (see link at the bottom of this email).
We do not stock any of those waters, so you should not expect to see hatchery Rainbow Trout or other Trout Species.  There's a chance you might encounter a Brook Trout in the upper-most headwaters of Clover Creek, but it would be unlikely.
If you have further, or more specific questions, feel free to contact the fisheries staff in the Magic Valley Region at 208-324-4359.
Thanks for your question.
