Cutthroat, Rainbow trout, Brook trout, Brown trout
Fishing from the Henry's Fork Lodge location, anglers have an incredibly diverse line-up of area fishing options.
The Henry’s Fork
The spring creek sections of Harriman Park and the fast water of the Box Canyon are world famous. Guides can also show you lesser-known downstream sections. This river offers the ultimate challenge to sophisticated anglers and can also be very productive for novice fly fishers. It can be fished both by wading and floating in a drift boat. The Henry’s Fork is spring fed and its flows are moderated by a reservoir, so it runs clear throughout the season.
The South Fork of the Snake
This Idaho river can be fished from the lodge with certain South Fork licensed guides. The South Fork offers prolific hatches and eager cutthroats along with some chances for larg View more...e browns. August, September and October are the most dependable months. Boats are essential, though some fishing can be done by wading the mid-river riffles and islands.
The Madison River
Originates in Yellowstone National Park from the confluence of the Gibbon and Firehole Rivers. In the Park, it has the quiet character of a spring creek, and you may be accompanied by bison, elk or swans as you wade for browns and rainbows. Outside the Park, the river flows for more than 40 miles offering great dry fly and nymph fishing, either from a boat or by wading. The Madison fishes best in the heart of summer, when prolific caddis hatches and an abundance of terrestrials like hoppers and ants draw the fish to the surface and to dry flies.
The Firehole and Gibbon Rivers
Small to medium-sized rivers located in Yellowstone Park. They are largely spring fed and flow together to form the Madison. Influenced by geysers and hot springs, they fish well with dry flies early and late in the season.
The home of the “gulpers” – rainbows and browns that cruise the surface gobbling mayflies on summer mornings. You can use float tubes and canoes here for a stealthy approach. It is common to fish Hebgen with dries until midday, then go to a river for a different experience in the afternoon.
One of the best and most famous fly fishing lake in Idaho and home to the state record brookie. Primarily a Yellowstone Cutthroat fishery, you can also fish for big brookies in the fall and rainbow-cutthroat hybrids up to 6-7 lbs. on sinking lines or with dry-dropper rigs.
