Protect Silver Creek


Silver Creek is a "crown jewel" of Idaho and the U.S. Its diverse ecosystems are rare and unique. It draws people from around the world.

The proposed changes: allowing anglers to alter the catch and release policy to keep up to six brown trout daily, regardless of size; permitting fishing from non-motorized boats, in addition to waders and float tubes, will alter the face (peace, quiet, tranquility of the area and turn it into an "interstate highway." This will result in damage to the fragile ecosystem and natural environment.

Any changes considered should involve the general public, anglers and necessary time for scientific exploration of these or any proposed changes to Silver Creek Preserve.
