Maybe it's the trophy trout, or the flocks of ducks overhead, or that glorious light. Whatever the reason, we're sure you agree that Silver Creek is one of the most special spring creeks in the country.
Our preserve--located near Picabo in southcentral Idaho--draws visitors each year from all 50 states and all over the world.
