Fishing Getting Hot For 4th

box-canyon2Fishing is heating up as the water levels in the Henry’s Fork starts to drop. What was outrageously high water as recently as three weeks ago has turned into perfection in the last few days. Couple that with the fact that the hatches are coming fast and furious, and you have a recipe for great fishing.

They’re seeing great success on the Henry’s Fork with brown drakes. During the middle of the day there are a few green drakes hatching as well, but the brown drakes are working all day. Up in Box Canyon the golden stones are working well as the stone flies start in earnest. Up on the Madison they’re seeing the beginning of the salmon fly hatch and fishing has been great up there as well.

Lakes continue to be spotty, with the best success coming early in the day. Island Park Reservoir is good down toward Trude’s and Henry’s Lake is good wherever it’s good today. There doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason (however a good place to start is on the South side near the cliffs.

Bring your pole and get up here!! Judging from the traffic already, this is going to be a good weekend. We hope you can be part of it.
