Known as the “Graduate School of Fly-Fishing for PH.D. Trout”, the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River is a true gem of western United States fly-fishing. Attempting to catch one of the Railroad Ranch’s well-educated trout can be one of the most satisfying feats in an anglers life. However, there are more facets to the Henry’s Fork than the famous “Railroad Ranch”. In fact, the Henry’s Fork can present any type of water to any anglers. The river below Island Park Reservoir, know as the Box Canyon, provides non-stop tailwater fishing to jumbo rainbows in fast, boulder-churned pocket water. Last Chance and Railroad Ranch areas offers some of the best sight casting to trout in the world. Below Lower Mesa Falls, brown trout join the rainbow trout populations and add to the excitement of the riffles, rapids and pools from the Warm River confluence to Ashton as well as the tailwater sections from Vernon downstream to St. Anthony.
