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

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

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!
