Henry’s Fork 4-14-12

Leave the river below Chester Dam alone because of run off coming from Fall River.  The river above to the Vernon Bridge (closed until general opening from there upstream to the Ashton Dam) offers some good afternoon fishing when BWO activity gets going.  Overcast, low wind (if you can find such!) days are best.  Caddisfly action is also giving fish reason to feed.  If you fish later in the day, be sure to have streamer patterns available.  During evenings large trout will be foraging, especially around parts of the river out of direct sunlight.  Presenting streamer patterns during this activity gives you the best chance for encountering a trophy this time of year.   Go to the Henry’s Fork Foundation web site for an update on activities at the Ashton Dam and for their outlook on construction impacts on fishing the river below for weeks to come.
