Fishing ReportOct 12, 2017 | Todd Lanning

The natural flow of all of the waters in our system are slightly above normal and water temperatures have stayed cool. These factors have resulted in exceptional fishing for this time of the season.

August fishing is holding up much better than most folks have anticipated. I think the fishing will hold up through the month and should just get better as we slide into September.

The Henrys Fork continues to fish very well. Golden Stones, pmds and green drakes just to name a few. The lower river is seeing a lot of boat traffic but the good news is that we have some other options.
Fishing ReportJun 13, 2017 | Mike Lawson
Our weather hit a bump in the road with snow in Island Park. This short-lived system will only help the fishing. This should be an epic week with PMDs, caddisflies, Green Drakes, Gray Drakes, Golden Stones……
Fishing ReportJun 8, 2017 | Todd Lanning
June has been a great month on the Henry’s fork and it is only going to get better. We are expecting another great week. We are filling up fast so if you’re looking for a day of guided fishing on the river give us a call soon.

Fishing ReportApr 24, 2017 | Todd Lanning
April has been a great month for East Idaho. We lost substantial snow pack in March and honestly things were not looking to good. April has more than made up for any snow pack lost in March. Things are looking up for the 2017 season. Mike Lawson’s…
Fishing ReportApr 13, 2017 | Todd Lanning
April is upon us and winter has started to leave the Island Park area. In Last Chance the snow is going fast. Snow pack in the higher elevations is still very solid and I think we should have an amazing summer!
Fishing ReportMar 30, 2017 | Todd Lanning
The Calendar says March 30th but looking out the window this morning it looks more like November 30th. The first part of March brought unseasonably warm weather to east Idaho and we lost snow pack. However things have turned around…
Fishing ReportMar 22, 2017 | Todd Lanning
Warmer weather has come to East Idaho sooner than we would like. As a result we have some high water conditions to talk about. The good news is we have cooler weather forecast for this weekend and there’re still plenty of options.

Spring is on its way in for sure! While there is still plenty of snow in the Island Park area things down South have melted off for the most part and the fishing has really started to heat up.
Fishing ReportMar 6, 2017 | Todd Lanning

Fishing ReportOct 26, 2016 | Todd Lanning
