July 12th, 2009 · No Comments

The Upper Coffee Pot campground is right on the Henry’s Fork, in the Mack’s Inn area. This is an outstanding place to teach kids to fly fish. The wading is very easy, the fish are very willing, and everytime that I’ve been there, the fish are rising.

April 28th, 2009 · No Comments

I started out believing that Mack’s Inn was an Exxon station where I bought my fishing license and filled up the car. Over the years, I learned of the dances and history of place, fires and all.  This year, Mack’s Inn turns 100.  Read all about it on the Island Park Idaho blog.

Henry’s Fork Report – Sucker’s Bet

June 24th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Earlier this month, Henry’s Lake reached 100% full, and they started releasing water into the outlet. We were optimistic – thinking of all the large cutts and hybrids that were washed over the dam. We are especially lucky that we have access to the private water right downstream of the dam.
