    These sessions are presented by Al and Gretchen Beatty

    Ron Mayfield joins us once again to discuss a couple of his patterns, the Bonefish Bytes and Jerk Me. They look really interesting and given the patterns we received from him in the past, this will be a great presentation.

    Also, recently we discovered a simple, less-than-ten-dollar addition we put on our Mokose C-100 Zoom studio camera(s) that is a real game changer. Join us to learn what it is when we review the WEEKLY TIP.

    The Beattys are inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

      Gravel Augmentation Project

      Project Lead:   Troy Pearse

      Date & Time:   TBD  (See Below)

      BVFF is refreshing the gravel in our side channel in Garden City.  We are coordinating with Boise Flood District #10 who has again graciously volunteered to help move the gravel into the river while they are in the area doing their annual winter maintenance.  BVFF Volunteers are needed to help do greenbelt traffic control and rake-out the gravel in the river.

      For more information on the gravel refresh, see our Conservation Blog .

      We are raising money for the gravel augmentation. $25 buys enough gravel for one trout redd. If you are interested in sponsoring a trout redd, please buy a Greenback at our BVFF Online Store.


      DATE & TIME:

      The current estimate is the flood district will be in the area on Monday, February 6th, but the exact date and time may change by a day or two, depending on their schedule.

      VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:

      Please register if you are interested and can help with this project.  We are collecting names of interested volunteers ONLY at this time.  When a firm date has been established, you will be contacted for confirmation.

      LOCATION:

      The side channel project is located off the greenbelt access at the end of W. Duck Lake Drive in Garden City.

      McCall/Cascade Area

      The outings team is working on the details of club outing to the McCall/Cascade area in August 11th to 13th.

      Our plan is to learn about this area and explore the many possibilities for fishing from family ponds, Payette River, and the numerous opportunities for high mountain lakes from the ones you drive your car to and the ones that require a hike. The possibilities will give all members a chance to find a perfect location.

      At the June 9th meeting, our speaker will be Mike McLean will present on the High Mountain Lakes of McCall.  Mike is a well know expert on the region, the fishing and exploring in the area. Mike and Kerri live in McCall and can help us understand and explore the area.

      We will be building the details of the outings, however, now is the time for you to plan your lodging in the McCall/Cascade area.

      Looking forward to a great year, “On the water with BVFF” – see you in McCall in August of 2023.
