Apply these techniques to improve your fly fishing experience.

As a fly shop manager, guide and avid fly fisherman for Three Rivers Ranch, I get asked countless questions on how to improve the experience of fly fishing in our area and beyond.  I have always loved sharing local knowledge as well as my own experiences regarding the illustrious sport of fly fishing for trout in our region.  I have also loved imparting information that helps the regular traveler and the professional alike.  Here are 10 ways that I have improved my own life when it comes to fly fishing.  I hope these aspects expand your own experience, I know they have for me: 1)  First and foremost, I think the best advice is:  Think for Yourself! I meet so many fly-fishermen and women that ask the most fundamental questions and they then start to tell me what they think.  Why?  Most fly fisher-people know more than they give themselves credit.  You have spent countless hours doing what we all love, take that experience and build upon it.  There is no “magic fly” and your knowledge of your local water is more important than any ‘shop guy’ telling you what to buy. 2)  Diversity:  “Have the kitchen sink” means less

Harriman Canal Restoration Project

As the most iconic stretch of the Henry’s Fork, the Harriman reach or “the Ranch” is near and dear to many anglers’ hearts. These 8 river miles are surrounded by Harriman State Park (HSP), a former private cattle ranch gifted to the state of Idaho in 1961 and fully transferred in 1977 by the Harriman family. Permittees still graze cattle in the park and the Henry’s Fork Foundation (HFF) established a riparian fencing program in 1984 to help protect the banks of the river from erosion. Over 30 years later, conservation work conducted by HFF, Harriman State Park, the Friends of Harriman State Park (FHSP), grazing permittees, and volunteers continues to protect this famed stretch of river. The first of these is HFF’s fencing program. Beginning at the very start of HFF’s history in 1984, the riparian fencing program has grown and evolved over time, but centers on 3 miles of fence that HFF monitors each year (1.5 miles at Wood Road 16 and 1.5 miles across from Last Chance). In late spring, HFF puts up the two sections of barbed wire fence and in late fall, once cattle are no longer grazing in the park, staff return to lay

Water Year 2017: Precipitation 138% of average, streamflow 109% of average

Water year 2017 was above average in both precipitation and streamflow. Averaged over the whole watershed, precipitation was 138% of average, led by the Fall River watershed, at 144% of average. Due to the cumulative effect of four years of drought, especially in the groundwater-dominated subwatersheds, natural streamflow was only 109% of average, led by the Teton River at 134% of average. Streamflow in the upper Henry's Fork, which is dominated by groundwater, was only 91% of average. Water Year 2017 Climate: Wet but Warm Text text text text text Water Year 2017 Streamflow 9% Above Average text text 2017 Diversion Near Average but Storage Delivery Below Average text text text text Looking Ahead With Island Park Reservoir already very near its April-1 average, outflow from the reservoir over the remainder of the fall and winter will be very close to inflow. Projected gain in the river between Henry's Lake and Island Park will average 415 cfs over the fall and winter. Currently, Henry's Lake is delivering about 50 cfs to Island Park Reservoir, but that will probably decrease to somewhere between 0 and 20 cfs later in the fall. Thus, projected outflow from Island Park Reservoir during the middle

South Fork of the Snake River Fishing Report – Sept 20

The latest South Fork of the Snake River fishing report was yesterday from Wolf to Heise & it was great news!  There were lots of fish between 14 and 19 inches.  We had big brown trout coming up and sipping dry flies as well. You could focus on: Pink Alberts, PMD’s, terrestrials were ok but the conditions were pretty cold.  There was a little Baetis hatch, but not for long.

Henry’s Fork Fishing Report – Sept 20

The Henry’s Fork has been fishing well, considering the weather.  The last few days have brought a light dusting of snow to the upper sections of the Henry’s Fork.  The main issue is wind.  The lower section of the Henry’s Fork (below Ashton) is more susceptible to wind than in the canyon section (Osbourne Bridge to Ashton). As for fishing, BWO’s are around!  Terrestrials are still crawling, but are waining, due to the weather.  Try a rusty spinner, or go with a streamer.
