*****  COVID 19 RESTRICTIONS  *****

As of March 16, 2021 Duck Valley lakes have reopened.  There are some restrictions, and social gathering is discouraged.

The good news is the lake was stocked last year, although it was closed, so there are likely plenty of hungry trout.  In addition if you purchased a DV annual license last year, it will be valid for 2021.

Please check back--  as the date approaches we will know more about restrictions.

Ice-out usually occurs in late March and fishing can be excellent and on occasions frenzied those first couple of weeks after ice-out. Spring fishing on the Duck Valley reservoirs can be cold so don’t forget your fleece pants and other warm clothes and remember to dress in layers.

As with years past you can expect most fish range between 16 and 22 inches with a few big fish in the 24 inch. Fish are caught on leech patterns of various colors, Sheep Creek Specials, Wooly Buggers, Stayner Ducktails, and Chironomids .

Fishing Permits can be purchased in Duck Valley at the store and tribal headquarters, and in Boise at Sportsman’s Warehouse, Idaho Angler, and Cabela’s. Permits are $18 per day. 2020 yearly fishing licenses will be rolled over to 2021 so if you bought an annual license in 2020 you are able to use the license for 2021.

Primitive campsites are $10 per day, and campsites with electricity and water are $15 per day and require a reservation. If you are a yearly license holder primitive spots are free and electric sites are $10 per day. Reservations have to be made at the Owyhee Ace Hardware Store (775) 757-2305 (next to the grocery store. The early spring can get busy at Duck Valley so make your reservations early if you want a site with power.

Please remember to register for the event on the BVFF website so we know how many people to expect.
