Wyoming, Idaho, and Yellowstone Park, offer some of the most outstanding stillwater fishing in the Rocky Mountain West. Anglers can have great days catching tremendous fish on these waters while the area rivers and streams are muddy and cold from runoff. In general, lakes often hold the largest trout, and the lakes in our area are no different. A 20″ fish on a river might be the fish of the day, but on a lake like Lewis Lake or Henry’s Lake, the smallest fish of the day might be 20″. Browns, rainbows, cutthroat, brook trout, cuttbows all inhabit these reservoirs and readily devour dry flies, nymphs and streamers. And the lake take . . . it’s like the fish is trying to pull the rod out of your hands!

Lakes Reservoir Fishing Report – (7.17.18)
Henry’s Lake: Fishing has been slow with leeches and chrinonomids on intermediate and type 3 sinking lines. Callibaetis too.
Lewis Lake: Fishing well. Look for fish crusing the shallows and holding in bays, drop offs and ledges. Callibaetis, Flying Ants, beetles and terrestials are making their presence known.
Jenny Lake: Fishing has been good our drop-offs, points and ledges. Sinking lines with closer minnows are working best. Be on the lookout for flying ants and Callibaetis.
