Henrys Fork Fishing Report – (5.5.22)
From the Henry’s Fork Foundation:
From Fish & Game: “Fisheries Biologists will be conducting their annual May electrofishing surveys to estimate trout abundance in the Henrys Fork. These surveys are conducted to inform anglers what fish size structure and abundance is like in each reach.
Box Canyon – May 10, 11, and 17
Lower River: The Lower Henry’s Fork is a great place to be during the spring season. It can offer some of the most consistent fly fishing opportunities during the spring months in our local area. Look for areas like Stone Bridge, Jump Off Canyon, Fisherman’s Road, Ora, Vernon, Chester and Fun Farm to offer great access and fishing options. Midges are going to be the dominant hatches but be on the lookout for leftover Capnia Stones, Caddis and BWOs when the weather warms back up. Nymphing will remain productive in typical “Spring Water” as well as the occasional fishing feeding on the surface. Streamers can be productive but need to be moved low and slow. Those that like to swing flies should look to the lower Henry’s Fork for trout spey opportunities.
Upper river: Flows are hovering around 425 cfs. The Box Canyon can offer some great nymphing opportunities during the spring season. Access is pretty much limited to Island Park Dam/Box Canyon. Look for softer water and areas of the river were the current is slower. The Ranch is now closed until June 15th, 2022.
