Did you know that you can still pan for gold in Idaho? 

I've heard about people going out into the Idaho wilderness and panning for gold and actually having success. It isn't easy and it isn't a guarantee, but if it is something you have always wanted to do, you can do it.

The Gold Prospecting Online website is a great resource for finding where and how to find gold in Idaho. You won't have much luck in Twin Falls but there is gold near Boise, Bellevue, Hailey, and Ketchum.

My wife and I watch a lot of the TV show Gold Rush and it is fun to pretend that gold mining is something we could do. Apparently we could starts small here in Idaho and maybe get real gold fever.

Have you ever panned for gold in Idaho?
