HFF Monitors New Winter Fishing Seasons

In cooperation with Idaho Department of Fish and Game, HFF is closely monitoring angler use of the newly opened winter fishing seasons. 

These newly opened winter fishing seasons are on the Henry’s Fork between Ashton Dam and Vernon Bridge and in the Pinehaven area. James Chandler, the HFF intern from St. Lawrence University, is conducting a formal survey to quantify angler use and catch-and-release rates.

Over the first four weeks of the survey, James observed no angling activity at Pinehaven but estimated a total of 163 angler-hours in the Ashton-Vernon reach. Catch rate there has averaged 0.84 fish per hour.

See James’ blog for more details.


Watershed Council Considers Controversial Boat Access


About 80 people packed the room at the February 9 meeting of the Henry’s Fork Watershed Council, at which the Council reviewed a proposal from Idaho Department of Fish and Game to construct a new boat access on the South Fork Teton River near Rexburg. Many arguments were made in support of and in opposition to the proposal, but in the end, the Council was unable to come to consensus to endorse the project.

IDFG was pleased at the interest and input it received at the meeting and will use that input as it considers how to proceed with its proposal.

The proposal, meeting notes, and other relevant information is available HERE.


Research & Restoration Raffle is Under Way!

Have you sent in your raffle tickets yet?
One of the many water quality sondes HFF has installed in the Henry's Fork.
The Research & Restoration Raffle raises money for projects that improve the wild trout fisheries of the Henry’s Fork. Each year, HFF restores wild trout fisheries habitat, helps make fish passage projects a reality, and ensures there is enough water in the river for young trout during critical winter months.

You can support this work and have a chance to win one of these five prizes by contributing to the raffle. In addition, you can also help contribute to our understanding of river ecology by sponsoring a Water Quality Sonde.

Make sure to get your Research and Restoration Raffle tickets mailed in for a chance to win!
