Wednesday, January 9, Chapter Meeting Program

Our upcoming chapter meeting in January will shed more light on the South Fork Boise River. Last May, the IDFG gave us a presentation on the results of their past fish community surveys on the South Fork, which identified some peculiarities associated with the age class structure of the native rainbow trout population. We will briefly revisit this biological phenomenon and discuss a new and important Trout Unlimited initiative to secure funding for a genetics study to help identify the geographic origin of South Fork rainbow trout.

The bulk of our program presentation will be given by Clayton Nalder, Forest Service Fisheries Biologist from the Mountain Home Ranger District. Clayton’s program will cover FS grazing, recreation, motor vehicle use, and noxious weed management along the South Fork corridor from Anderson Dam to Arrowrock Reservoir. Clayton has also been involved in South Fork fishery evaluations, including rainbow trout spawner estimates in the mainstem river.

For our pre-meeting fly tying demonstration, Mike Kellett (also a local FS fishery biologist) will be utilizing natural materials he acquires through his hunting pursuits to tie some favorite patterns. We will meet at the MK Nature Center, behind the IDFG headquarters office at 600 South Walnut. Fly tying starts at 6:30 pm with the meeting/program beginning at 7:30.

The agenda at this meeting will include nomination and election of Chapter officers and those members of our board whose terms in office are up.
