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.

Fall coming on strong – Henrys Fork Fishing Report
October 8, 2019
Henrys Fork Fishing Report – (10.8.19)
Lower River: The lower Henry’s Fork is offering some great dry fly fishing opportunities with the kickstart to Fall. Mahoganies and Beatis will be the dominate hatches for the fall fishing season. Pairing a hopper with a dropper is providing plenty of action during the warm/sunny days. Streamer action should pick up as the weather continues to cool. The lower Henry’s can be a spectacular fall fishery, don’t miss out.
Upper river: Flows are 570 cfs. Dry Dropper fishing will continue to be productive with Golden stones and hopper imitations on warm/sunny days. Nymphing remains good with Rubberlegs, zebra midges and other small tactical sparse mayfly nymphs. The Ranch has been good with Beatis when conditions are right. Be ready with your A game!
