Eastern Idaho Fishing Report, 5/19/23

Henry's Fork: The current flows out of Island Park are 1,260 cfs. Fishing has started to improve but you will still need to dig deep and work hard to catch some fish. You are going to want to have zebra midge variations; black, red, etc., olive bullets #16, toddlers olive and black #14 or #16, and rubber legs. Seems like the best dry fly activity is in the early evenings (5-7pm) with peacock caddis. Streamers may also work in black & olive. Warm River is still high and a little off color but is starting to show some life again. A few salmonflys were spotted flying around the other day. I would be sure to have some salmonflys, March browns, and caddis on you for those fish looking up. I would also have some rubber legs and olive bullets. Henry's Lake has been producing. Small black or red chironomids, small black leeches, and large white articulated steamers have been working when stripped super slow. Be sure to stop by our Island Park Fly Shop for lake flies and our good friends at Drift Lodge to pick up anything you need for Henry's Lake. Feel free to stop by our

Boise River & Owyhee River Fishing Report, 5/5/23

Boise River In-Town: The Boise River in-town is very high and is unsafe to fish, it is currently around 6,000 cfs. The Boise Fire Department has posted the “Dangerous River Condition” notice. South Fork of the Boise: The South Fork of the Boise River is closed until Memorial Weekend. Owyhee River: Flows are currently at 168 cfs, water is a little off color, and it sounds like flows may be increasing in the next week or so. Nymphing or using a dry dropper seems to be producing the most. For nymphs you can try using a voodoo midge #16 or #18, cardinal midge #16 or #18, holo-point jig in purple, or a split case pmd. Stripping leeches can also be productive in natural tan or black. There have been some midges, blue wings, and some caddis hatching. You can try using an Elk hair caddis #16 or #18. 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.
