Southwest Region Fishing Report

Saturday, April 25, 2015 

Updated: March 2015

This report highlights the monthly stocking schedule (when stocking occurs).

Crane Falls Reservoir to Receive "Total" Fishing Renovation: Despite its relative remoteness, Crane Falls Reservoir remains one of southwest Idaho’s most popular fishing destinations. Things are about to get a whole lot better.

Beginning March 2, Fish and Game crews will be working to upgrade access points, facilities and fishing docks at Crane Falls, to the tune of $72,000. A new "small craft" boat ramp, restroom, and improved parking near the ramp location on the reservoir’s east side are just some of the improvements slated for completion by mid-April. "It’s really a total renovation of Crane Falls," Fish and Game boating and fishing access coordinator Dennis Hardy noted.

In the days ahead, the reservoir’s water level will be lowered to facilitate construction efforts.

For more information regarding the Crane Falls Reservoir renovation project, please call the Fish and Game Nampa office at 465-8465.
