Southeast Idaho Fishing Report

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

Date 9/16/2021

Snake Below American Falls Reservoir:

The flows coming out are sitting at 6750CFS and the reservoir level is at 8%. The water clarity is off but water temps are starting to cool. Fishing has been slow due to water conditions but the carpin on the reservoir has been great.  

Bugs to fish: Hopper dropper rigs, black leeches, balanced leeches suspended. 

South Fork Snake River The flow out of the dam is around 8000CFS and the reservoir is sitting at 11%. The water has dropped a ton over the last month and makes floating and fishing conditions a lot better. Seeing a few good hopper days but rubber legs and small nymphs are the most productive. Mutant stone are still out here and there but should see mahogany's soon.

Henrys Fork: The flows around Ashton are sitting at 969 CFS. The fishing has been spotty but terrestrial action is still rockin. Nymphing in the box has been good and lower river hopper and ant fishing as well.


Portneuf River: Above lava has been seeing some great hopper dropper fishing. Flows are great and so is the water quality. Still seeing a few PMDs and lots of tricos as well. 

Still waters & Lakes: Most of our reservoirs and extremely low and have very poor fishing conditions. If your going to fish stillwaters look for the warm water species lakes. Tons of great bass and bluegill fishing south of Pocatello.
