Salmon Flies on the Henry’s Fork

The Henry’s Fork is up and running for the 09 season. The salmon fly hatch stared last Saturday below the Ashton Dam. The hatch is slowly moving up stream but the best run right now seems to still be down on the lowest section. The water on this float is mild and unassuming, but the fish that lurk below are huge. This section of the river has the most large fish on all the Henry’s Fork. The average size is unbelievable. Most are between 17 and 20 inches with a few caught every day over 20. Right now the fish are smashing the big bugs from the banks all the way out in the center of the river. Right now this float offers one of the best chances of the year to catch a 5+ pound fish on a dry fly.
