This post is a mixture of a few different reports over the past couple of weeks. Last weekend camped out near Henry’s lake and fished the opener. Fishing was much slower than years past. The fish had moved off the banks and the weather was not helpful at all. It snowed three inches the first night we were there and the wind blew hard the whole day. Josh ended up landing the only fish that our group was able to catch from the lake. I lost one and Josh also lost a really nice brook trout. We decided to head somewhere else close by and try our luck. There were a ton of people at this spot and it was combat fishing at it’s finest. With that said, we still landed over 150 fish between us in the couple of days we fished it. To top it off, 90% of those fish were caught on dries even though we were fishing in the middle of a blizzard.

This is Supposed to be the Start of Summer?
Since Henry’s Lake was fairly unproductive from the banks, we decided to end our trip early and headed home. The Henry’s Fork is really starting to turn on so we have been fishing it a little more lately. The last couple of trips provided some great dry fly action for big trout.

As much as I love fishing the Henry’s Fork, I am ready for a change of scenery. I am hoping to get out a couple days this week in search of some big carp. Nothing puts a bend in a fly rod like a monster carp can!
