By all accounts, Eastern Idaho is seeing its first real runoff of the year, and most of the feeder creeks and tributaries to the Henry’s Fork, South Fork and the Teton River are dirty and high. After recent snow and rain storms in February and March, snow pack levels for Eastern Idaho are all over or near 100% for this time of the year. This above-average precipitation is leading to a positive outlook for the water levels during our upcoming fishing season. Back–to-back months of above average precipitation across most of Idaho boosted the water supply outlook according to the April report released by the Idaho Natural Resources Conservation Service, which means Idaho farmers and fishermen may shake hands once again! The Upper Snake River basin as a whole should see early and continuing runoff if this weather trend continues with warmer days and more wet precipitation, and by all accounts, the Upper Snake’s water supply is in great shape to handle whatever weather this summer may bring. This wonderful amount of early-season water may tease us and help deliver not only a fantastic mayfly season, but we may also finally see a hot hopper season to boot! This higher

The Boise River in town is flowing at 5,410 cfs (what does cfs mean?) To give you a perspective, the median flow is 854cfs and flood stage is 7000 cfs. We suggest to keep off the river until it drops! The water is cold, deep, & flowing fast! There are also trees that are in the flow, which makes things very dangerous. Keep in mind, the South Fork of the Boise is closed to fishing until May 28. Sorry for the bad news. Stay safe and stay off the Boise River, for now… As of today, Lucky Peak, Aarowrock, and Anderson Ranch are all above 75% full. With a lot of snowpack in the high country, the flows should last for the next 4 – 6 weeks. The post Boise River Fishing Report – April 14, 2016 appeared first on TRR Outfitters.
