where's the best place to catch catfish in southern Idaho
In the springtime, the Snake River in the Fort Boise area is a good bet. Fish below islands and in back-eddy locations using worms or cut-bait. Steck Park near Weiser is also a local favorite location. Bank anglers do well and there are also a few knowledgable anglers who actually catch catfish on flies.
In the summer, I like to fish from a boat on the upper end of Brownlee Reservoir. Fish in coves and bays using cut-bait. Use enough weight to keep your bait on the bottom.
