Henrys Fork Fishing Report – (3.20.23)
Lower River: The lower Henry’s Fork can be the place to be during the early spring season. Hatches are going to be limited to Midges and some Capnia Stoneflies. Anglers should concentrate on slower water types this time of year with slowly warming water tempatures. Nymphing is going to be your most productive method this time of year. Small rubberlegs, zebra midges, sparse pheasant tails, SJ Worms and other small technical tailwater bugs should all be in your fly box. Prime conditions (calm, warm, overcast days) will bring some fish to the surface to eat Midges. Streamer fishing can be productive as well, just make sure to keep your flies low and slow. For those who like swinging flies – the lower Henry’s Fork is prime for trout spey!
Upper river: Flows have been decreased to 267 cfs. The Box Canyon can continue to fish well during the early spring months if you don’t mind post-holing around a little bit. Concentrate on the slowest water possible. Double nymph rigs are going to be the ticket. Keep your flies low, slow and in the zone.
