Recent research by the Henry’s Fork Foundation and Idaho Fish and Game biologists shows that there are currently more Rainbow trout in the Box Canyon stretch of the Henry’s Fork then there has been since the 1970’s. A few major factors they believe contribute to the increase of Rainbows is due to a large number of two-year old fish spawned in 2011, the increased water flow from the Island Park Dam from the 2011-2012 winter, and possibly due to the increased fish production from the Buffalo River. Whatever the case, biologists believe there are 6,200 fish per mile, plus or minus 500.
