Seems like everything fishing is early this year, and that is the case with Henry’s Fork green drakes. Both have been out for a while on the lower river. Now they are out in good numbers on the upper river. Plenty of PMDs, too. The Harriman State Park section of the river opens Monday, June 15th, and you can bet that with good numbers of green drakes out now fish will be keying on them. But here’s a tip: consider trying a big dry stonefly pattern. Want to know why? Yes the stonefly event is over, but a few still hang around, and wind (like we had yesterday) blows them into the Harriman part of the river from Box Canyon above and Cardiac Canyon below. The older fish know what they are. Need I say more? Same strategy works anywhere canyon reaches holding big stoneflies are adjacent to habitat favored by green drakes; ie Firehole River, Lewis River, Fall River Basin streams. Not many gray drakes on the lower river, yet. Let’s see what kind of numbers will happen in this low water year.
