Shore ice limits access on parts of the river, but there are some places where you get on to pitch a streamer or try some midging. Try below Gem Lake Dam. On the west side you can walk the rock ledges for access. On the east side there is some access below the undeveloped boat launch near the kid’s pond. There is also some access on the west side of the river downstream of the Shelley Interstate-15 connector. Further downstream, the river can be easily reached from the IDF&G Riverton Road access below Blackfoot, from the Tilden Bridge west side, and from McTucker Ponds.
