Lower River: The lower Henry’s Fork is offering some great dry fly fishing opportunities with the kickstart to Fall. Be ready with hoppers and the occasional leftover PMD and Caddis. 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 Mahoganies and Beatis when conditions are right. Be ready with your A game! Don’t forget about the terrestrials and occasional PMD when is gets hot.
