May 24th, 2022 Henry’s Fork Fishing Report

Some of the Beartooth Family got to play hooky in search of Salmon Flies on the Henry’s Fork from Warm River to Ashton ANNNNNNNDD… too early!!! We spotted a handful of Salmon Flies but just not enough in the air to get the fish to bite, we tried! The River is running at 1,320cfs a little off color but definitely lower flows on Tuesday. We experienced a cooler upstream wind for most of the day and varying overcast and sunny conditions. The Fish gave us a challenge regarding what they wanted to eat. As we were inclined to give dries the most attention; there were Midges, Blue-Winged Olives and Caddis Hatches, however the Fish wanted the Subsurface Nymphs. We did see a few rises throughout the day however our Flies were snubbed. We were still able to catch some good Fish, the photos tell the rest of the story.
