In-Depth Fishing Report for The Snake River, Henry’s Fork, South Fork of the Snake, Portneuf River as well as surrounding lakes and still waters of Southeast Idaho
Snake Below American Falls Reservoir: Water bump! Flows out of the dam are sitting around 2300 cfs and the reservoir is at 92%. Don’t the the rise in water keep you away there is still great walk n wade access at these flows. Large water increses mean more food getting throw into the system. Get your perch and worm patterns ready, cause it on!
South Fork Snake River : flows are around 1850CFS with the reservoir at 95% full. With the reservoir filling and the water discharge out of AF we can expect these flows to change over the next couple weeks. The flow it is at now brings great streamer and nymph fishing opportunities throughout the entire system.
Henry’s Fork: Its cold! Nymphing has still been productive with zebras, Copper johns, and smaller jig style flies. Look for the soft pockets at the end of riffles and the eddys.
Still Water/Lakes: Ice fishing is in full swing on most of our lakes. Most of our southern still waters have been producing some nice fish through the ice. American falls has had some awesome perch fishing!
Portneuf: The upper portions are in great shape. Water clarity and flow are great this time of year. Midges and smaller nymph have been producing along with your favorite leeches in browns and olive.
