Our destination is the legendary Henry’s Fork in Eastern Idaho with biologist and expert fly angler, Brett High, Idaho Fish & Game. The Henry’s Fork is famous for prolific hatches, trophy football-shaped trout, and endless wading opportunities. Brett covers it all from 15 lb Rainbows in Henry’s Lake to superb and highly technical dry fly fishing on Harriman Ranch to trophy Brown Trout in the lower river. Voted #1 out of the top 100 streams in the country by Trout Unlimited, the Henry’s Fork should be on every anglers’ bucket list. Bonus: stories of 25” electroshocked Browns and a 31” state record Cutthroat that towed a drift boat a half mile.
