Malad RiverFormed at the confluence of the Big and Little Wood rivers near Gooding, this 12 mile long river can be very productive for both brown and rainbow trout. The Malad, from the I-84 bridge upstream to its source, is open to fishing year round and can be a surprisingly good dry fly fishery even in the dead of winter. Below the bridge, fishing is not recommended until shortly before it enters the Snake River due to the 250-foot deep gorge the river crashes through. South of the gorge, pocket water fishing can be excellent for rainbows that can reach 20 inches.

Billingsley CreekLocated near the town of Hagerman, this spring creek is best accessed from the new Billingsley Creek State Park. There isn't a lot of bank access here, so a float tube or canoe will open up many opportunities for the angler. Browns and rainbows are available in this spring creek and can range in size from 10" to 20" , with the occasional fish over 20" prowling these waters. The creek also holds many golden-colored rainbows, a color variant of rainbow trout that are highly visible and exciting to fish for.
