Salmon Fly Time!

Salmon flies are here on the Henry’s Fork.  The last two nights they have been crawling and last night there were a ton flying.  Tuesday night a couple friends and I floated the Ora to Vernon stretch and all managed to catch a few fish, the biggest being a 23″ brown (not caught by me).  I managed a couple decent rainbows and a bunch of huge whitefish as well.  Last night is when the bugs really started crawling.  I fished in the Warm River to Ashton stretch and bugs were everywhere!  I started with a salmon fly dry dropping a rubber legs and managed on white fish on the nymph.  After no luck for a little while I switch to a double rubber leg rig and hooked up quite quickly.  I ended up catching six or so nice fat fish, the biggest being a 19″ brown.  Unfortunately the weather has taken a turn for the worse today, but it should be back on again tomorrow!
