It’s the time of year when trout move into the river above Island Park Reservoir. Reasons include the less hospitable conditions in the drawned-down reservoir, kokanee beginning to migrate, and a remnant spawning run. For now try the river below Coffee Pot Rapids. Streamers and wooly bugger types work for wets while hopper, traditional attractor, and caddis patterns work well for dries. Consider soon trying the river just below the Big Springs-Henry’s Lake outlet confluence with streamers and terrestrial patterns. But do so late or early in the day to avoid the boaters. As we move into autumn, this part of the river will host some very large rainbows.
