Eastern Idaho received a higher than normal amount of snow last winter. Now that our weather is warming significantly, run-off in large proportions is here. Examples include the Willow Creek and upper Blackfoot River drainages with both having some flood potential. The upper Blackfoot River drainage and Willow Creek tributaries do not open to fishing until July first, but their run-off situations provide what to expect on eastern Idaho streams draining high country and being open for catch and release fishing. Many of these streams are currently unreachable until roads are passable but can provide good fishing when run-off subsides. The best way to find when such roads open is to contact local National Forest ranger district and BLM offices.
