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!

September 5, 2019
Lakes Reservoir Fishing Report – (9.5.19)
Henry’s Lake: Open and fishing fair with leeches, midges and scuds on intermediate lines. Concentrate on creek mouths and expect company.
Lewis Lake: Open and fishing well. Concentrate on structure and depth changes. Small streamers, leeches and baitfish patterns have been working well. Be on the lookout for terrestrials.
Jenny Lake: Fishing well. Look for fish to hold up around creek mouths, drop-offs, points and structure. Sparse streamers and closer minnows will get ’em to eat. Be on the lookout for terrestrials.
