Couple items to talk about for the Henry’s Fork. I have been watching the flows on the Fall River and it looks like we are starting into runoff…finally. This means that the water below Chester Dam is going to be off color and when it really starts roaring it will be muddy. Warm River will put some off color water into the river but the float from Warm River to Ashton will still be fishable. Vernon to Chester will be fishing as well. Remember that Box Canyon is open and as soon as we hear the snow has melted we will let you know when you can get into the boat ramps.
Good Caddis, Blue Wing olive, and March Browns have been hatching on the river. I like to fish a little bit larger Caddis pattern that is often a different color than the caddis hatching. This gives you a little different look than what the fish are seeing and sometimes can be to your advantage. Blue Wing Olive and March Brown Emerger patterns seem to have the best success. Nymphing and streamer fishing continue to produce fish as well. Some really good spring fishing on the Henry’s Fork, and it is possible to find water that is not getting highly effected by the runoff.
