Fun Farm Bridge

Currently the best stream fishing in the area is on the  lower Henry’s Fork. From the Ora Bridge down to Chester, BWO, midge and a scattering of March Browns bring top water action. Drifting big stonefly nymphs through riffles will is become more effective as we progress toward mid-May. Streamers under low light conditions continue to produce for browns and post-spawning rainbows.  These comments also apply to the river from Chester Dam to below St. Anthony. Drift boat fishers cause “traffic jams” at all launch sites from the Ora Bridge to Chester Dam, but there is room for walk-in wade fishing. From Warm River to Ashton Reservoir there is less crowding because distance spreads anglers around. The same comments apply with respect to fishing strategy but with drift boat fishing obviously the best way to cover water.
