The Salmon Fly is here in full swing, along with several other flies. We have seen a lot of dry fly action along the entire stretch of the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River. The Henry’s Fork general season opener is this weekend May 26, 2012. There are several places where fish have been gorging themselves on Salmon flies and other things. Box has been fishing well, but in typical Box fashion your best bet is a nymph setup; the Salmon fly nymphs are crawling in the evening. Ashton up to Riverside, we’ve seen (some) Flavs, Blue Winged Olives, Crane flies, Yellowsallies, Midges (early), and Spinners (late). Golden Stone’s are coming soon.
If you’re planning to fly fish the Henry’s Fork from Chester to Fun Farm: try Salmon Flies, Blue Winged Olives, Flavs, Midges, Crane Flies, and most of the same flies I listed from Ashton up.
It is definately a great time for fishing the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River. This year is shaping up to be an excellent year for fishing! If you’re all set to come fish with us this summer, we look forward to seeing you. If you haven’t got your trip booked yet, do so immediately!
As our legendary head guide Doug Gibson says, “… you never know about the catching, but the fishing is always good!”
