Henry's Fork Salmonfly's!

Salmonfly Fishing on The Henry's Fork With Slimy Trout!

I spent yesterday floating the lower Henry's Fork with John and Karl. We started with a short float from Ora to Vernon around mid-day. Conditions were good - sunny skies, warm temps, and a little breeze. Unfortunately, there might have been more salmonflies with hooks sticking out of them on the water than natural bugs. Despite the crowds, we managed to find a handful of nice chunky fish. John's brown that went 21" turned out to be the fish of the day.
In the afternoon we opted for a lower float from Chester to Fun Farm. Flows from the Fall R. seem to have come up and cooled the water considerably. We saw very few naturals, and struggled to catch the three fish we caught. Aside from two or three missed opportunities on a dry stone, our few landed fish were on a dropped rubberleg.
As we headed back up the Ashton Hill, we got a report from Jake who floated down to Chester late in the afternoon and "got 'em". Oh well, you win some. You loose some
