Lucky Peak Reservoir Rooster Tail

Editors' Picks

Boise may be getting all citified, with its fancy restaurants, boutiques, art galleries and spas, but true Idahoans still get a kick out of the simple things in life; namely, the Lucky Peak Dam rooster tail. Every now and then, when we get a decent winter snow fall, Lucky Peak Reservoir fills to the brim and dam managers are forced to dump some water, quick like. The result is a massive plume of water shooting out from the base of the dam. Families haul children and out-of-town guests east of town to see the spectacle and prove that we, too, know all about the finer things in life.
