If you’re looking for catfish here, you’re going to have to head over to the Snake River. It may be an hour or so drive depending on what part of the river you fish. Anglers target catfish here, however, trout are still king in the Boise area, so you won’t have tons of competition if you’re out to do some fishing for catfish. There are some big catfish in the river too and with minimal fishing pressure, you should have a decent shot at catching some solid fish if you know how to find productive water quickly in rivers for catfish.
