The Year of the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River

Fly Fishing Idaho – Fishing Report

This year has been epic for fly fishing the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River.  While water levels have made many other Idaho Fly Fisheries challenging the Henry’s Fork has offered up some unbelievable hatches and some great fish.

It is continuing that trend as you can see from the fish that Mike Porter pulled out of the Henry’s Fork last week.

I’ve heard numerous great reports on it and wanted to give you an up to date river report on the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River:

  • Nymphing any of the standards with or with out beads will bring best results on the lower section of the North Fork.
  • Attractors such as standard humpys, royal wulffs, renegades (#12-16) will bring fish up.
  • Be on the look out for hoppers, they should be effective very soon.
  • Streamers in the morning or around sunset against the banks can bring out the big boys as you can see from the picture.
  • Don’t be afraid to throw ants or beetles as well.

I know the South Fork of the Snake River is heating up and water levels are coming down, but if you find yourself in the middle of a boat hatch then maybe try the Henry’s Fork.  Guaranteed to have a smaller boat hatch!
