This park is popular in the spring.  You should make reservations for a campsite ASAP if you intend to go.   (There is no longer a group campsite). 

Please Register!   We need an accurate count for the BBQ.  We will also need your help as BVFF is a co-host for the BBQ. BVFF will supply the hamburgers, chicken sausage and rolls. WFFI will provide pot-luck dishes.


This event is a BVFF sponsored event in collaboration with the Women Fly Fishers of Idaho (WFFI) fly fishing club!

This is a great family time and angling event with large Bluegill and Bass fishing. Beside the pond at the sand dunes there is excellent fishing at the Snake River, Cove Arm, Crane Falls, Bruneau River and CJ Strike Reservoir. Bring your float tube or pontoon boat. In the past Pico Spiders, Pico Blanco’s (aka Blanco Pico), white spiders, small bass plugs, mouse patterns, and Stayner Ducktails have been productive, but check with the local fly shops for recommendation.
