Henrys Fork Fly Fishing Report:
The Henry’s Fork is pretty tough to fish as of lately. The ice shelf is pretty extensive covering about 15 feet into the river.

The best place to get a little fishing in is up near Warm River around Stone’s Bridge (the boat ramp in Warm River off Fishermans Drive). We’re looking forward to the slightly warmer temperatures February may bring. So look for sunny days and temperatures rising above 32 degrees.
