The Boise River: Our Home Waters

The Boise River runs gracefully through the heart of the City of Boise, Idaho’s capital city. There aren’t many state capitals that can boast of some pretty darn good fly-fishing and floating in the very heart of downtown. A greenbelt system of parks and walking paths has allowed the river to function splendidly through a sizable urban area who’s residents cherish and nurture its’ health.

Trout Unlimited and partners have amassed a substantial body of work of projects to improve aquatic and riparian habitat along the lower Boise River. You can peruse the links below to a profile of each of these activities (pages under construction):

  • Island Creek
  • Heron Creek
  • Julia Creek Daylighting
  • Alta Harris Creek
  • Warm Springs Creek
