Henry's
Fork

"Late Summer and early winter views of Sawtell Peak from Henry's Fork below the Henry's Lake outlet confluence provide seasonal moods for the angler. The Tubs, haven for large rainbows, whitefish and occasional brook trout, and cutthroat trout escapees from Henry's Lake are the main angling features here. The rewards of fishing the Tubs were described decades ago by writers such as Ray Bergman and Alexander McDonald. More recently, Charlie Brooks describes them in his spell binding book:
The Henry's Fork."

Falls River Canyon

"Falls River Canyon offers a superb scenery and rainbow trout to several pounds. Late summer to early autumn is the best time to fish this powerful water in a wilderness setting".

Green Drake

"The most celebrated mayfly emergence from eastern Idaho waters is that of the green drake in the Harriman State Park region of the Henry's Fork....All green drake dun patterns are best presented on a dead drift from aside and above. During the peak of the daily emergence many fish will be taking duns which begin emerging when water temperatures reach the mid-50s Fahrenheit. Thus it becomes possible to present flies to a very large fish and the chances are good that an exhilarating encounter will result."

Blue Winged Olive

"The most widespread mayflies found in eastern Idaho waters are Baetis species, commonly known as the blue winged olives. ...When representing dun imitations one must achieve a drag free drift through the feeding lane of a rising fish......Several of the blue winged olive duns are popular in eastern Idaho".

Elk Creek

Standing in Elk Creek and casting where Elk Creek runs into the Buffalo River in Island Park.

Lower Palisades Lake "Lower Palisades Lake is a popular destination for anglers and hikers. Located four miles up a well maintained service trail from Palisades camp grounds, it holds cut throat trout to trophy sizes."

Warm River Fishing the west side of Henry's Fork above the bridge at the mouth of the Warm River Willow Creek "Leaving the Willow Creek Lava fields southeast of Idaho Falls. Willow Creek cuts an 800-feet deep canyon on its descent to the Snake River plain. Ririe Dam impounds waters for miles in the lower canyon providing fishing for trout and bass just minutes from Idaho Falls."

Cut Throat "Snake River fine spotted as well as Yellowstone cutthroat trout inhabit lakes and streams. This early season female from Chesterfield Reservoir shows the silvery sides and greenish hues common to lake and reservoir residents."

Aldous Lake

"A chance for trophy cutthroat trout is the reward for the angler who carries his float tube to Aldous Lake in the Centennial Range above the Kilgore ranching community. This spring-fed lake contributes water to Camas Creek, the first drainage west of The Henry's Fork."

Buffalo River Ramps such as this one on the Buffalo River in Island Park provide handicapped fly fishers access to many of Idaho's waters. Casting from the outlets on this and other ramps in the Snake River Valley enables handicapped persons to maintain their love of the outdoors and fishing.

Snake River Ponds "Spring ponds such as these garland the Snake River Plain adjacent to the north side of American Falls Reservoir. Rainbow, cutthroat and hybrid trout prosper in these ponds, and a number of them have become trout farms to supply culinary demands around the world."

Brook Trout This 14 inch brook trout took a beaded nymph at the handicap access on the Buffalo River in Island Park. It's a good-sized "Brookie" for our area. The warmth of some waters often prevent these brightly colored little trout from reaching full maturity.

Native Steelhead GOOD CATCH! This 30 inch native steel head was landed on the Salmon River, near Salmon,ID.
