BVFF Memberships and Events 

Welcome!

Boise Valley Fly Fishers (BVFF) would like to invite you to join our fly fishing club! As an affiliate member of the Fly Fishers International, the Boise Valley Fly Fishers provide the following to our members:

  • Conservation projects that benefit the lakes and rivers near Boise
  • Education - The Boise Valley Fishers put on the Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo each year. In addition, they also put on several fly tying, and fly fishing workshops each year
  • Outings - The Boise Valley Fly Fishers put on monthly fly fishing outings to local and not so local rivers and lakes. Check out this write up on the camaraderie of our club in the Idaho Statesman: Fish Rap: Good fishing is more than a body count
  • Monthly Meetings - Club Meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month, and feature a local fly tyer and a local fly fishing and/or conservation expert to talk to the group.

In addition to all of this, the Boise Valley Fly Fishers also organize the annual Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo, and we are always looking for volunteers.

BVFF celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2021 of championing fly fishing education, resource conservation, and angling access for fly anglers in the Treasure Valley.

Becoming a member is easy, just click the link on the left hand side of this page that says "Join Us".

Boise River Conservation Project

11/11/20  BVFF has launched the Lower Boise River New Dry Creek South Channel Gravel Augmentation Project This project will help enhance spawning locations for trout in the Boise River, thereby enhancing our angling success for wild trout right in Boise City / Ada County!

12/16/20  Fly Fishers International (FFI) has awarded BVFF $500 grant in support of this project.

12/29/20  BVFF has received both the US Army Corp of Engineers 404 permit and Idaho Stream Alteration permit necessary for advancing this project.  SunRoc Corp has volunteered to donate the necessary gravel.  At this writing, the time frame for depositing gravel in the area is projected to be mid January.

1/8/2021  Current work status for the Boise Flood District appears that the work for the New Dry Creek South Channel area may begin mid to late week of 1/18 to 1/22.

1/24/2021  Project was completed on 1/23.  Gravel additions look great, and we now await the arrival of spawning rainbow trout this spring, and brown trout next fall.  BVFF members will continue to monitor the locations for evidence of spawning trout.  A refresh of the gravel will likely be necessary in three to five years.

1/29/2021  Press Release on the project to local news media and social media.  A follow-up activity will be the creation and installation of a sign on the greenbelt area describing the trout life cycle and need for proper sized gravel.

A big thankyou to all volunteers, consultants, and donors who made this project possible.  In particular we would like to thank:

  • Boise Flood District #10
  • SunRoc Corporation
  • Fly Fishers International
  • Trout Unlimited-- Ted Trueblood Chapter
  • BioAnalysts
  • Idaho Fish & Game

Check out the web page or FAQ Summary, or Press Release to learn about this project.
