Just 2 hours east of Boise will put you in the Snake River Canyon and at Dierkes Lake. Formed by a collapsed lava tube, some remnants of the old farm which was once on top of the tube can still be found at the bottom. Silt is 2'+ deep and viz varies depending on the algae bloom and turnover. Lots of trout, sunfish and shore fishers (watch out for lines and hooks). Try to find a dive platform and sunken steel rowboats!
