  • One Fish, Two Fish Find a New Home

    The high water levels we continue to experience are providing one great silver lining for anglers; more places to fish.

    Black's Creek, Indian Creek and Paddock Reservoirs are nearly brim full, but have been dry or nearly so for a number of years. While they look inviting to anglers, there's one small problem; none of them contain many - or possibly any - fish.

  • Anglers Invited to Help with Fish Collection at CJ Strike Reservoir

    This Saturday, anglers can participate in their favorite pastime and support a good cause – reestablishing fish populations in local waters.

    The winter’s heavy snowpack has filled many small lakes and reservoirs throughout Southwest Idaho including Blacks Creek Reservoir and Indian Creek Reservoir. Biologists from Idaho Fish and Game will be stationed at CJ Strike Reservoir this Saturday, May 13 from 10:00am to 6:00pm, collecting Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Pumpkinseed, and Yellow Perch from anglers for transfer to the two reservoirs.
