Hitting the Links: Arctic Grayling Fever Edition

We finally reached 50 degrees here in Idaho Falls. It has been a frigid spring so far, with snowstorms in town more common than rain. That bodes well for the water year, of course. I made my first trip the Henry's Fork on Friday and got into a few well-fed rainbows (check out the photo at the end of the post). On to the links...

  • Montana has granted some money for a cool project on the Big Hole and the Ruby Rivers. $400K has been committed to improving the populations of Arctic Grayling on the two fisheries.

  • Montana closed the Smith River to floating a couple of weeks ago due to dangerous conditions. Not sure if it has been reopened. If you know, please post an update in the comments.

  • Another reminder about the East Idaho Fly Tying expo, which takes place next week. Its a good event that benefits local fisheries. Check it out if you are in the area.

  • Finally here is a pic from my initial foray to the Hank's Fork this year.


  1. The Smith opened again on the 11th, was closed due to ice.
