Current Conservation Projects


BVFF will be conducting several service projects to assist in mapping trout redds in coming weeks:

Boise River Redd Mapping

A float of sections of the Boise River in town to locate and map the locations of brown trout redds.  This information has been provided to Boise River Flood District #10 to allow avoiding these areas while conducting their maintenance work.  See the information on the project HERE.

Owyhee River Redd Count

Oregon Dept Fish & Wildlife will be conducting their annual redd count on the Owhyee River.  BVFF members are invited to help in this effort.  See event calendar to register for this project.

Trout Habitat Sign Placement

In conclusion of the Boise River gravel augmentation project a trout life cycle sign has been placed near the augmentation site.  See event calendar for this project.

BVFF members Kent Christensen and Klauss Kissman stand next to the habitat education sign recently installed near the gravel augmentation project on the Boise River.

Owyhee River Cleanup 2022

BVFF members joined the Indianhead Fly Fishers on March 26 to assist with the annal cleanup along the Lower Owyhee River, OR.  Volunteers from several organizations collaborated to gather a considerable load of trash from the river. 

Thank you to all participating volunteers for this great effort!


Boise River Gravel Augmentation

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
