Nymphs & Salmonfly's on the Henry's Fork of the Snake River

A gorgeous habitat for Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Cutthroat and Whitefish...the Henry's Fork has every type of trout water. Watch as Jared Cady, Lucas Holmgren and Daniel Mckee fish two different drifts and catch fish on double-nymph rigs, dry-droppers and Stonefly dries...

Jared Cady of Big Sky Anglers took out Lucas and Daniel on a fly fishing trip targeting rainbows and browns on the Henry's Fork of the Snake River in Western Idaho.

They stayed at the Golden Stone Inn in West Yellowstone. With the choice to fish the Madison or the Henry's Fork, both days were spent on the Henry's Fork. The trout were on the bite, and Jared took great care to teach the intricacies of casting an indicator, tin shot, and two nymphs.

This setup requires a careful roll cast but once you get the drift right, this double-nymphing setup can be absolutely deadly. Henrys Fork is a tributary river of the Snake, 127 miles long, in southeastern Idaho in the United States. It is also referred to as the North Fork of the Snake River. Its drainage basin is 3,212 square miles, including its main tributary, the Teton River. The Black Lab puppy also happened to find a small skull on the side of the river...is it a fox? Is it a coyote? The Salmonfly Hatch is just starting, and they're starting to rise!
