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.
