Henry's Fork of the Snake River - Lower (Below Ashton Reservoir), Idaho Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week

Techniques & Tips

Look for rising fish eating adult or emerging midge flies. If there is nothing happening there, nymph or streamer fishing can be extremely productive. We are into sub surface season where getting down and dirty with an indicator/euro style rig will produce your best numbers and some great quality rainbow and brown trout.
