Streamers are the name of the game now with post spawning rainbows and hungry browns making for action.  For top water enthusiasts, midge patterns offer action from smaller fish, and some BWOs are showing up on the lower reaches.  With warming days access will become easier for both walk-in wading and float fishing.

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.

Look for migrating browns taking streamer patterns almost anywhere up & down the river.  The same for rainbows chasing forage minnows. This unsettled weather we are having is just the ticket for action with evenings being the best time of day for a chance at a really big brown or ‘bow.   Be sure to have a streamer tip line for presenting those streamers.

Browns are on the move! From Menan to American Falls Reservoir you can encounter big browns almost anywhere under low light conditions. There are many walk-in locations and several boat ramps up & down the river.  Get in touch with us to learn some of the best locations for a chance at what could be the fish of a season.

Browns are moving throughout the river, so streamer fishing is productive.  Big rainbows are also responding to streamers. There are several walk-in locations along the river.  Many are just a few minutes from town.  Stop by the shop and we can point some out to you.

Flow throughout the river is about normal for this time of year, and brown trout are migrating.   There are numerous walk-in locations as well as a great selection of reaches to float.  Visit the shop to get info for making a selection of places to fish and to see the streamer patterns we stock for the river.

We are now getting reports of large fish being caught here through fishing streamer patterns.  With flow dropping to normal levels from Menan to American Falls Res., there are a huge number of great locations to walk-in-wade or to float.   Come to the shop to learn some out from this great choice.  Also be sure you have a sink-tip line for presenting those streamers. We have a great selection of these as well as taking streamer patterns.
