Migratory bird season is wrapping up for the season and we have a little wait until Spring Turkey and Bear are ready to kick-off in April. If you had a great season make sure to bring pictures down of your successful hunts or catches and post them on our bulletin board.


  • Canyon Ferry: Ice has been pretty dangerous there are a few people daring to plank out there but we’d not recommend it. However plenty of guys are sticking to shore and hooking up with night crawlers.
  • Little Black Foot: We’ve had a plenty of customers heading over here to get in some great early bird fly fishing. Nymphing is the ticket this time of year so bring some bead-headed Pheasant Tails and black or olive buggers you should get some good bites in some gorgeous country.

Overall, ice fishing is on hold and may be over for most of us unless we see some dramatic changes in temperature.
