The Birch Creek family area is the place to fish for now. The creek below Lone Pine opens this weekend and will be a destination for anglers of all kinds of terminal gear. In other words it will be crowded. Inflow from the mainstem Snake River makes most of McTucker Creek unfishable. Run-off will impact many small waters this coming weekend, but some of these will be good locations for opening weekend. Look for Warm River, Buffalo River, Tom’s Creek, and Portneuf River to be good choices.
