Southwest Region Fishing Report

Friday, January 30, 2015 

Updated: January 2015

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

Road Repairs to Close Ft. Boise WMA Boat Ramp: Beginning Monday, January 26, Fish and Game staff will be repairing the primary access road into Ft. Boise Wildlife Management Area (WMA).

The repair work will necessitate closing the boat ramp at the end of the access road for the duration of the repair work. Project completion is slated for January 30, at which time the access road and the boat ramp will reopen to the public.

Boaters planning to access the Snake River during the closure are encouraged to use the boat ramp just west of Fish and Game’s Martins Landing Access Site at the end of Scott Pit Road.

For more information regarding the repair project, contact Fish and Game’s Ft. Boise WMA office at 208-722-5888.

Maintenance Work Scheduled for Walters Ferry Boat Ramp: In early February, Department crews will be removing sediment from the narrow channel that leads from the boat ramp to the Snake River.

The two-phase, two-week project will begin February 2 and should be wrapped up by February 12. The project schedule fits nicely between waterfowl seasons that are winding down and powerboat seasons that have yet to begin.

Anticipating some use during this slow period, project leaders encourage boaters to use alternative launch points. “The schedule calls for Walters Ferry ramp to be closed during the second week of the project, February 9 through 12,” Fish and Game recreational site maintenance foreman Dennis Hardy said. “Nearby alternative launch sites include Bernard Landing downstream and Celebration Park upstream.”

For more information regarding the Walters Ferry project, contact Hardy at the Fish and Game Nampa office at 208-465-8465.
