Henry’s Fork offers some of the Best Fishing in Idaho
Henry’s Fork is a branch of the Snake River that cuts a path through southeastern Idaho, also called the North Fork of the Snake River. As one of the most diverse fly fishing rivers in the world, Henry’s Fork is famously known for its copious opportunities for both advanced and novice fly fishers. The spectacular Upper and Lower Mesa Falls are also on the Henrys Fork, making this high mountain lake the spot fishers dream about experiencing during their trip to Rocky Mountain Elk Ranch. The state park will be opening the Thursday before Memorial Day, weather permitting, offering anglers a place to fish for cutthroat and rainbow-cutthroat hybrids, as well as a new fish cleaning station near the boat ramp. Other major fishing spots nearby include the Teton River, Madison River, many private fisheries and ponds, for a complete immersion into some of the best fishing in Idaho.
Jackson Lake is the largest and most famous lake in Grand Teton National Park, thanks to the spectacular scenery and outstanding amenities. However, you’ll also find that it offers the best fishing in Idaho, great boating excursions, as well as sailing opportunities. The best season to go fishing on Jackson Lake is right after ice-out, while the fish stay in the shallows searching for bait, making them especially vulnerable to shore fishers. Once warmer weather sets in, the fish spend most of their time in deeper waters. Taking fly fishers out of the range, but giving anglers with trolling rigs a chance to catch something in the middle of the summer.
