Now I've never seen Niagara Falls but this has got to be a close second. 3 bucks gets you in. They say a picture is worth a thousands words but I'd much rather see this in person then look at a picture...

The falls were flowing at full level. It was beautiful. You could hear the water roar and feel the mist on your face!

NIAGRA FALLS OF THE WEST. No idea what we were getting into. Stopped for lunch and came here on a whim. $3 to get in and completely worth it. Lovely green picnic area with quality informational plaques. Great views (go down the short path to...More

Definitely a must see if you're in the area. I went twice and it was so worth it! I wish there was a small place to eat, but all they had was a tiny souvenir stand with some snacks. That didn't take away from the...More

I have wanted to see the falls since we got to Boise in February. We finally made it and we were somewhat disappointed. The flow had already started to decline and the crowds were off-putting. As my wife said, "Once you've been to Niagara and...More

Apparently the fall flow was reduced for irrigation. We were able to walk out to the platform and capture some pics with the Falls behind us. The magnitude of the Falls was missing along with most of the water. No comparison to Niagura Falls on...More

If you are anywhere in the Twin Falls area and you do not stop to see the Shoshone Falls...YOU HAVE LOST YOUR MIND. Do not miss this truly magnificent gem.

The park and the falls where beautiful and a must do if anyone pass by Twin Falls. It was very easy to park and walk to the overlook balcony. The spot is easy accessible and the look of the falls and Snake River is magnificent.

In the SW corner of Idaho and not really on the average tourist's route, it is worth a detour. The observation platform is deliciously close to the falls and you can hike to the base. Being known as the "Niagara of the West" overstates it...More

You will not be disappointed by the $3.00 entry fee to see the West's version of Niagara Falls. Shoshone Falls are breathtaking and only a short walk from the parking lot to see and enjoy. Bring your camera and even a picnic to capture the...More

Sorry, I didn't see your question until now and I'm not a fisher anyway so I don't know.

It is a little bit of a drive off I84 week days are less busy, or earlier in the day. It also can be a little wet. We got soaked from the spray. There is a small entrance fee. Well worth it.

I haven't heard of any flooding since February. I live 3 hours drive away so your best bet would be to contact the Twin Falls Chamber of Commerce or Visitors' Center.
