Fishing Report

Jun 9, 2018 | Todd Lanning Kewl.jpg

Box Canyon

The Box has really been fishing well this year. I would have salmon flies and golden stones with me if I was headed to the box. I would also make sure to have a good selection of bead heads. The Black # 10 rubber legs is always a good call and a selection of smaller beads on hand. I really like the #16 peacock anato may and have also had good success with the #16 Duracell. The #16 bullet quill has also been very good.

Lower River

I think your will be hard pressed to find anywhere on the Henry’s Fork that is not fishing well. We have been seeing salmon flies and golden stones from the Box Canyon down to Saint Anthony. We are also starting to see gray drakes as well as a few green drakes on the lower river. Be prepared to see caddis and pmds as well. I honestly think things are going to get better and better. I would have a good selection of flies to fish the lower river. Henrys Fork Foam, goldens and salmon flies. I would have some No-Hackle pmds and some Hudgens spinners. If I was nymphing I would have the same nymphs I mentioned above and would add a #12 green two bit hooker. A #12 tungsten bead pheasant tail will also work very well.

South Fork

I don’t have new information on the South Fork. The river is currently at 22000cfs. I do think the South Fork will come into play sooner than it did last year.

Teton

The Teton is still a little high in my opinion but again I think it will come into play sooner than it did last Summer We will keep you posted as things change.

Madison

The Upper Madison has cleared up considerably over the last few days and we are now sitting at over two and a half feet of visibility above the West Fork. The West Fork is still putting in some dirty water, but it is starting to clean up a little more with each passing day. Better reports are starting to come in from boats in the float section between Palisades and Ennis as well, so that will open up some new water for the time being. Again, you’ll want to stay away from Lyon’s to Palisades until the river drops another 300 cfs, as Sun West and Wolf Creek Bridges are still extremely dangerous to float under Again as things change we will keep you posted.
