Henrys Fork Fishing Report – (10.12.21)
Lower River: With the recent cooler weather and precipitation, water temps have dropped into better zones for our trout friends. Vegetation growth is starting to let loose with the cooler water temps, so be ready for some turbidity and suspended grass on the lowest reaches. Terrestrial fishing is starting to phase out with Hoppers, Beetles and Ants. Droppers are still producing as well but keep them out of the weeks. Be on the lookout for Mahoganies and Baetis as fall progresses and our weather cools. Streamers will come into play as Brown trout get aggressive and ready to spawn.
Upper river: Flows have dropped to around 200 cfs. The Box Canyon has been tougher will the fluctuations in water levels, turbidity, and discharges. With the flows dropping, you will be able to fish more of the river and the Box is in prime condition for wade fishing. Nymphing has been the way to go with smaller rubberleg patterns, tungsten jig ptails, perdigons and other tactical fare. The Wood Road area and The Ranch are offering some ok good dry fly fishing opportunities with leftover Mahoganies and Baetis as our weather cools. There’s a bunch of vegetation and grass on the Ranch, so be ready as a bunch of that stuff will let loose with the cooler water temps.
