Henry’s Fork 6/8

You can find Stoneflies from Chester Dam all the way up to the Lower Mesa Falls. Timing is the key for catching this hatch. If you are getting refusals on a Salmon fly, change up to a smaller golder stone. Caddis and Pale Morning Duns should start hatching any day now.

Looks like the main push of the runoff is here. The Fall River at Chester is reaching flows over 7,000cfs making the river below Chester basically in flood stage. Warm River and Robinson Creek have blown out as well. There is good hiking and wade fishing around Mesa Falls and Riverside campground. Rubberlegs, Caddis Pupa, Rollin Stones and CFO Hummer Stones should produce fish.

Henry’s Fork 6/3

The big stoneflies have been making an appearance on the Henry’s Fork. They are in full swing below the Ashton Dam. They have also moved up to Warm River but are not hatching in large numbers on the Warm River to Ashton stretch. Fish rising on these big bugs is really day to day. I would fish the dry and float a stonefly nymph as a dropper. The high water has pushed the fish towards the banks look for the fish to holding there. If the fish are not actively feeding on the surface try throwing a golden stone or a chernobyl ant. Mixing up the presentation will sometimes trigger a fish to rise.
