Description for the Silver CreekSilver Creek, located in central Idaho, is spring fed. It is therefore unaffected by the winter snowpack runoff like most rivers in Idaho. The creek hosts a dense rainbow and brown trout population and excellent dry fly fishing. A large part of the creek is owned by the Idaho Fish and Game and there is plenty of public access for those areas. The Silver Creek Preserve is an excellent access point as well as areas along highways 20, 93, and various side roads. Float tubing is allowed on the creek and it is a good way to approach the privately owned areas of the water.
Rainbows average 14 inches, but 20+ inch rainbows are landed on the creek every year and the large browns can weigh in over 5 pounds. The creek is known for its tremendous hatches and "match the hatch" fly fishing.
