June 5th 2008-Salmonflies on the Fork
Only 2 days until the first guests of the season arrive at the Ranch, and the guide staff has been busy fishing too get ready. Several rivers in the area are fishing pretty good right now, with the Henry’s Fork being on the top of the list. Salmonflies are moving up the river and should be in the Box by the time the Ranch opens. Warm River to Ashton is fishing well, but the high volume of water has put the dry fly fishing off a little. The Firehole is fishing well with Caddis, PMD’s and Baetis. Look for salmonflies in the canyon by this weekend as well. The Madison in the Park has been spotty but good, and salmonflies should work their way down this river this week, increasing the chance to run into good fishing. Everything is greening up, glacier lillies are blooming everywhere and the season’s first elk calves have been spotted. Looking forward to seeing everyone this season-let’s go fishin’!
