Create Great Fishing Memories

No matter what season is coming to an end, another season is just another reason to spend time on the water in your boat, with a fishing pole in hand. One of the best ways to enjoy boating and fishing in Idaho, is to share the fun with others - especially with your family.

While expert fishermen tend to know the ins and outs of both boating and fishing on the Snake River in Idaho, there are still many mistakes that can occur if the trip is not well-planned. This is especially important when you have children along for the ride.

The next time you’re gearing up with your family to go after the big fish, make sure that you can follow these safety guidelines.

  • Weather Report - Check the weather forecast in detail, using your favorite app, before you head out onto the water. In many climates, weather can change quickly and drastically, creating unexpected storms that could scare your children and put you all in harm’s way.

  • Dress yourself and your kids for the adventure - Even though this may seem obvious, it can get slippery out on the boat or the dock! Make sure there is stable footing for everyone by by wearing shoes that can grip boat floors, stones, and docks.

  • Make safety a game - It’s important to be equipped with everything you need for safety and protection - from flashlights and sunscreen to plenty of drinking water and life preservers - but you can also make it fun for the kids. For example: have the kids be the keepers of the radio, or have them be the person who makes sure everyone is wearing a hat or sunglasses (for protection against the sun).

  • Be very aware of dangerous items - The sport of fishing is always involves some sharp items, such as hooks and knives. Make sure you have these items in a locked tackle box to ensure that no one accidentally gets hurt.

  • Follow boating rules - Make sure your boat is in good standing by obeying all the laws of the land. To find out about the rules, research the body of water you’re going to be fishing on before you head out and start fishing.
