Check out the new 3-D archery course at Castle Rocks State Park on June 27th! A dedication ceremony will open a new fishing pond, followed by an exhibition of archery skills by members of the Idaho State Bowhunters. Dedication of the half-mile archery course begins at 1:30 pm. The new archery course holds 14 Rinehart 3-D targets of life-sized foam game animals, such as moose, elk and mountain lions. The course is made possible by collaboration between Idaho Fish and Game and the Idaho Dept. of Parks & Recreation, with additional funding provided by Idaho State Bowhunters and the Idaho Fish & Wildlife Foundation. For more information, call the park at (208) 824-5910.
The Idaho Fish & Wildlife Foundation played a vital role in securing new fishing access on the Little Salmon River near Riggins. The Foundation partnered with the Department of Fish and Game and private landowners for public access to a 5.2 acre site along Highway 95 just downstream of the bridge commonly known as “the swinging bridge.” Fish and Game has developed a parking area and walking paths to the area that is popular for fishing Chinook salmon and Steelhead. Anglers are encouraged to visit Fish and Game’s website for the Little Salmon River access map and rules.
The Idaho Fish & Wildlife Foundation elected new officers of the Board of Directors at its May Board Meeting. The officers include John Carlisle, President, Asotin, WA; Wayne Wright, First Vice-president, Twin Falls; Greg Gaddis, Second Vice-president, Boise; Dan Deagle, Treasurer, Buhl; and Pam Morris, Secretary, Ketchum. The Foundation’s Board of Directors consist of volunteers from across the state of Idaho.
