Blackfoot 2015

Recommended Posts

I would like to hold a fish in at Blackfoot for anybody that would like to come. I am posting this now in hopes that it will give some people ample time to make plans and be able to make it. Dates are flexible for now to see what people think. I was thinking mid June to catch the fish pre spawn. Weather can be a bit iffy still this time of year since the reservoir does sit at 6000ft above sea level. Mick (Baitbucket) and myself have fished Blackfoot a few times end of may early June and had warm days and cold days snow and rain. So I was thinking mid to end of June in hopes the weather is a little more stable. Or we could shoot for early summer? I am open to ideas and I fully intend to fish Blackfoot a few times this year 2014 and see how the fishing is mid summer and maybe early fall. Anybody is welcome to join me on these smaller trips or if anybody plans to come fish it this year and want some company feel free to contact me.

Two poles are allowed here with the purchase of a two pole permit. We are also NOT legal for chumming here so I would recommend you plan on using some form of pack, method, or lots of PVA.

Most carp anglers that I know of fishing Blackfoot have fished the narrows near the dam. You can set up camp almost anywhere you wish around the reservoir but most fish near the dam. Access to this area is not something you want to do in a car unless they have fixed the unpaved road down to the water. It's more of a road suited for larger suvs or trucks it's a dirt road full of ruts. If we end up with any weather the dirt here turns to a soupy snotty mess. There is an area at the south end of the reservoir with actual camp grounds. I plan to fish that area this year to see what it's like. It would be a much better area for easy access and restrooms.

Please post any questions you have here on this thread and I will do whatever I can to answer questions. I really want to make this happen and maybe make it an annual event. This is a venue that even our friend Dr.Neil Stern could manage a mirror. This place for me is almost magical. Every time you get a take you're almost guaranteed a mirror you just need to guess if its fully scaled or almost no scales etc etc.......

I have attached several photos from a few different trips to show what could be expected providing we can get into some fish. Big ones small ones all unique and beautiful. Ok guys let the comments begin.
