Henry’s Fork

Jimmy's All Seasons Angler / Henry’s Fork (Page 38)

Henry’s Fork 12/19

Fishing during the winter months can be very productive, or can be a nice visit to the river. Much of your success is great determined by the day you choose to go fishing. With the cold weather, snow, and wind you will want to choose a day to fish with tempatures over 32 degrees. On these warm days you will find midges working on top for dry flies, and nymphing will work underwater. Focus your fishing to the warmest part of the day. This is when the fish are the most active. Winter fishing is a great time to experience the river and be the only one out there. Remeber if you intend to float check the boats ramps first. They do not receive snow maintence during the winter.

The Majority of the Henry’s Fork has closed, but sections on the lower river are open year around. From Riverside campground to Ashton backwaters is open and from Vernon Bridge down is open. This time of year look for the fish to be concentrated in groups feeding on dry fly midge patterns.  A rubberleg with a glow bug as the dropper will produce fishas well. Concentrate your fishing during the warmest time of the day. This is when the fish are most active.

To find best action on the lower river, try streamers in waters not in direct sunlight, especially early & late in the day.  Streamers will also produce in Box Canyon.    On the lower river, midge and BWO emergences are best during low light conditions.  Much of the river above Riverside Campground closes the end of the month. Check IDF&G fishing regulations.

Brown trout are migrating to spawning areas from Warm River on downstream. Please consider avoiding their redds as walking through them crushes fertilized eggs reducing spawning success. Presenting streamer patterns in the waters through which they migrate to spawn is a great way to encounter them.   If you prefer to fish closer to the surface midge and BWO activity is ongoing on most of the river.

Streamer fishing is going great guns on the lower river, especially during stormy and low light conditions. Sink-tip lines are the best way to present. Decreasing flows are making for many locations that are easily waded. It’s getting cold out there, so dress accordingly!

Browns are moving all over in the lower river. With predicted stormy weather for the week, good actions is more than a possibility! Likewise the big rainbows in Box Canyon go after streamers this time of year.

Look for action to pick up with the storm coming in. Browns on the lower will be moving in better numbers, and BWOS will begin emerging during daytimes.

No change here to speak of other than streamers will get you into the big fish on the lower river. Low light conditions will be the best times to be here.

Streamers are the way to go, especially if you want to encounter larger fish along the lower river. This also applies to Box Canyon where large nymphs will also give you a chance for the big guys. Low light conditions will be the best time to be on the river.
