Henry’s Fork 6-12-10

Giant stoneflies are still hanging around thanks to our cool rainy weather, but golden stones are coming on.   The older, more experienced (meaning bigger) fish will be aware of them.  Best locations are from Riverside down to Warm River, Coffee Pot area, or Box (most crowded) Canyon.   Don’t overlook walking in to such as Bear Gulch, Mesa Falls and Hatchery Ford.  The other oncoming event is the PMD emergence.  For now the lower river ABOVE Chester backwaters will be the best location for this event.   Fall River is still putting runoff water into the river, so it is tough for us to recommend fishing below Chester Dam.   Caddis, of course, are just about everywhere, and if you visit the river in the evening and do not have streamer patterns in your fly box you could miss an opportunity for the biggest fish of the year.

Opening day fishing  success depended on location.   Near the hatchery and the State Park proved the best locations.  Weather has been tough with wind rain & some snow, but looks to improve.  Small leech (beadhead peacock leech) patterns seem best for fishing shallow waters for now.  Let’s see what works as the weather improves.

Fish are in shallow water all around the lake.  Small leech patterns in fall colors seem to work best.  Ice-up is a matter of days away, so get out and enjoy these last few days on the lake.

Shallows almost anywhere on the lake will produce fish.  Scud patterns on an intermediate line with and without a leech pattern tied in forward seem to work best. Dress warmly: water temps are around 40 Deg. F.

Action is picking up especially in the Dcuk Creek-Hope Creek area. Try the mity mouse and peacock leeches.  A few fish are being caught along the north shore, but action there has a long way to go to be considered very good.

All reports we have so far speak of spotty results.  The west side , that is from the cliffs to the County Boat Ramp, seem to be the best location.  Action is certain to pick up soon.
