We have reports of some silt entering the river below from construction activity on the Ashton Dam. It appears that the amount is within expected limits, and if so let’s hope that it stays that way. The Henry’s Fork Foundation is monitoring the river below the dam, and will have good information on effects of construction.
Fishing success on the lower river has slowed as is usual for the time of year. Best chance for action would be to present terrestrial patterns or fish during spinner falls. We also have reports of the same with respect to activity on the upper river during mid day hours. Mornings (try tricolife cycle patterns) and evenings (terrestrial, caddis life cycle, rusty spinner patterns) remain good fishing here.
