Horsethief Reservoir: ***Horsethief will be drained! Salvage has begun***
Brown Bullhead catfish were illegally introduced into Horsethief about 5 years ago, and IDFG plans to open a fish salvage on this reservoir beginning July 18th- October 20th. The reservoir will begin to be drained on September 8th.
A Salvage means that any person with a valid 2015 Idaho fishing license may harvest as many fish as he/she can catch. Daily bag limits no longer apply to a salvage.
Trout fishing has been the best mornings and evenings. Carolina rig Power Bait, Worms and Marshmallows. Boaters should try Pop Gear, Spinners, and Worms from the side of the boat. Woolly Buggers and Stayner Ducktails will work for fly fisherman.
