Rainbows Spawning In BVFF's Side Channel!

17 Apr 2022 4:17 PM | Troy Pearse (Administrator)

I am pleased to report that Rainbow Trout are spawning in the side channel where BVFF did their gravel augmentation in January of 2021! The river flows are lower than normal, but a few rainbows have started using the upper gravel area.

The large woody debris in the side channel continues to improve. The lower gravel augmentation area had some wood fall into the side channel over the winter, but we worked with the Boise Flood District to leave it for fry protection.

We continue to have issues with the public putting rocks and logs across the top entry to the channel so they can cross to access the area below the diversion dam.  We are working on an approach to limit the impact to inflows into the channel.

Idaho Fish and Game has added the side-channel to their yearly fry survey and we look forward to hearing what they find this Fall.
