Silver Creek, Idaho Landscape

I drove down to Silver Creek yesterday to take a look at a bunch of things including the water clarity and ice factor on Silver Creek near Picabo. The wind blew out of the east with high clouds. Temps were right around 32˚ and the dirt roads were still frozen enough so as not to become a muddy mess. The water clarity is good with some siltation. Ice is limited to the banks. The more off color it gets the better the streamer fishing seems to be. Too windy to notice any midges. Silver Creek downstream of HWY 20 stays open through February.
