Eastern Idaho Fishing Report 7/14/23

Henry's Fork: The current flows out of Island Park are 1,370 cfs. Flows have increased recently due to irrigation demand and may continue to increase with the rising temperatures. The upper HF in the Box Canyon area has been day to day, one day it will be fishing decent and the next it has been tough. Nymphing is going to produce the best using a duracell or a dry dropper rig with a golden stone and a pt leggy aka "bowling ball" below. In the Railroad Ranch there are pmd's still going, drakes are pretty much done. Best fishing will be in the mornings on pmds and caddis, in the evenings with flavs. The Warm River-Ashton section is fishing okay. We are seeing caddis and yellow sallies. Using a dry-dropper rig should produce. A large chubby chernobyl pattern in gold or peach color will work for up top and then below you can try using an olive bullet #14, yellow sally nymphs, or olive hot spot #14. Fishing has been best in the mornings, tends to slow down in the afternoon. Flows out of the Ashton reservoir are 2,380 cfs. The lower Henry's Fork is fishing well. We are

Boise River & Owyhee River Fishing Report 7/14/23

Boise River In-Town: Flows in town are still high and fast, wade cautiously. Streamers and nymphing are the go to. Attractor style nymphs size 16 - 20, like fire starters and hares ears. Midge nymphs are a safe bet as well in black and red like zebra midges. Big articulated streamers have been finding fish in olive, black, and white. Woolley Buggers and Dungeons have been working well. South Fork of the Boise: Flows are currently 1,230 cfs. Still high, but floatable. Salmonflies are phasing out. Goldenstones have been spotted. A hopper dropper rig should produce. For droppers using a fire starter or duracell nymph will work or even using rubber legs for heavier nymph rigs will work too. Owyhee River: Fishing is really on! Prospecting the usual midge nymphs size 18-22. Hopper dropper is finding fish in riffles. Pmds and caddis really coming alive in the afternoon. Zebra Midges, Split Case, San Juan Worm for nymphs. PMD RS2, Stacked Hackle, Sparkle Dun, X Caddis for dries. Have fun and stop by TRR Outfitters in Eagle or call (208) 939-6065 to stock up on some flies, purchase your Owyhee fishing license, or book a guided fishing trip. Owyhee River

Eastern Idaho Fishing Report, 5/5/23

Henry's Fork: After a long winter filled with lots of snow, the thaw is on, and the snow is melting quickly. The current flows out of Island Park are 624 cfs. It is tough fishing out there right now. With the warmer days we had at the beginning of the week the river is up and off color. At Warm River, there are plenty of Mother’s Day Caddis coming off, but not many heads up, using rubber legs and smaller bead heads will be the most productive but be sure to have some peacock caddis and parachute Adams on you in case you spot a rising fish. From Ora to St. Anthony there are blue wings and midges coming off, but again, not many rising fish. Subsurface you will want to focus on zebra midge variations; black, red, etc., olive bullets #16, toddlers olive and black #14 or #16, rubber legs, split case bwo’s #16 or #18. Streamers may also work in black, olive, white, or black/olive. With rain expected to move in this weekend, stay safe and enjoy!
