    Several thefts and car break-ins have occurred recently at the SF Boise River, as reported by Erik Eikanger at Idaho Angler.  One IA customer had a number of expensive rods and reels taken from his vehicle.

    Several thefts and break-ins (smashed windows) have also occurred at trail heads in Boise, so the same precautions apply when fishing on the Main Boise R.

    • Lock your car/truck when on the river
    • Keys behind the gas cap-- first place thieves looking to access your car will check.  Do something different.
    • Be aware of who might view you as you leave your vehicle 
    • If possible don't leave gear visible in your car or accessible
      (e.g. truck bed)

    On Tuesday, we had a meetup for a float from Swan Falls Dam, Snake River, to the first take-out point around 3.5 miles downriver. We had 11members and guest, take two drift boats and three kick boats on the float.  


    All in the group caught numerous small mount bass and enjoy the unique scenery of the canyon. Our outing coordinator, John Hofland, provide guidance about the river and shared his special Swan Fall Poppers; these really work.  


    There is a chance we could schedule another float in the coming weeks.  Any interest?   

    See you on the “Water with BVFF”

    We hope you are having a great summer of fun and fishing. Many of our members enjoy float tubes or other craft on lakes. In case you have not seen the updates, we are having a meet-up for you to get your craft check-out or we will have several types for you to try. Also, we will have a safety whistle and material for all that attend, from Idaho Parks and Recreation.


    Here are  few pictures from last Wednesday's meet up at Eagle Island State Park. In planning this meet-up we found this great article on float tube safety, please read as we want you all be safe on the water:
