Silver Creek Rule Changes May Dramatically Alter Fishery

Allowing a bag limit on brown trout and permitting motor-less boats on Idaho’s famed Silver Creek drainage has many anglers ringing alarm bells about proposed changes to the state’s fisheries management plan, which is up for review in November. “Picabo resident and author John Huber, whose writing credits include the ‘Flyfisher’s Guide to Oregon,’ said the Silver Creek rule changes could radically transform what he believes is one of the most unique fisheries in the United States, if not the world. He said standardizing fisheries regulations may be appropriate elsewhere, but not so on such a renowned and special fishery as Silver Creek.” Jason Kauffman in the Idaho Mountain Express.
