Henry's Fork is Hot, Flows Jump on South Fork

Flows out of Palisades Dam have jumped to 17,500 to accommodate for the massive inflow of water above the reservoir. This is going to make fishing on the South Fork a challenge, but hopefully flows will stabilize soon. In the mean time, the Henry's Fork continues to fish extremely well. Nymphing in the Box Canyon has produced some great days (see below), and we are seeing good hatches of Caddis, PMD's, Flavs and some Grey Drakes below Ashton Dam. The most successful dry fly anglers have been those willing to work slowly and concentrate on rising fish. Get out there and enjoy some of the great fishing The Henry's is offering up right now!

Box is Hot

WCA Guide Pat Bennett fished the Box last Saturday and Sunday with some clients new to flyfishing and hooked more than 40 fish on on both days. The best flies were the size 6 Pat's Black and tan rubberlegs with a purple flash prince or red copper bob dropper. The seagulls were picking up bugs crawling out on the bank late in the day yesterday, so the salmon flies should be happening unless the cold sets in. Lots of golden stone nymphs near the bank too. Water is perfect, give our Fly Shop in Island Park a ring for the most up to date conditions, 208-558-7068!
