September on the Henry’s Fork

Now that our guide season has slowed down we’ve had some time to go back and remember our time on the Henry’s Fork in Idaho. This was our sixth consecutive year hosting a group at TroutHunter, and while we say it every year, this year REALLY was the best yet. We had absolutely perfect weather, […]

In the River in Yellowstone Country

We’ve arrived at TroutHunter on the Henry’s Fork and spent some time fishing in Yellowstone National Park already. Our group arrives today and we expect to start casting a line on “The Fork”, but it’s already been pretty special. We had barely gotten settled into our room at TroutHunter and ordered a beer at the […]

Henry’s Fork 2014 Trip Summary and Photos

We made our annual September pilgrimage to Yellowstone Country by way of TroutHunter Lodge on the Henry’s Fork in Idaho. We’ve been going to the Yellowstone area since 1996 but this was the fourth year TroutHunter has served as our base of operations for fishing the Henry’s Fork, the Madison River in Montana, several rivers […]

Our Western Trip Summary

We’ve been home from Yellowstone Country for several weeks but have finally managed to get all the great photos sorted and put together a wrap up of the trip. We hosted a group of 12 fly fishers at TroutHunter in Island Park, Idaho on the Henry’s Fork. This was our third time with a group […]

On the Water at TroutHunter on the Henry’s Fork

Our group has established itself at TroutHunter on the Henry’s Fork with most of the rooms taken as well as a good chunk of the guide staff accounted for.  Today our group was peppered throughout the river system with anglers from Box Canyon all the way down below Ashton. Yesterday I spent about half a […]

Wrap Up of Our Trip to the Henry’s Fork & Yellowstone Park

We’ve been back home in the Smokies a few days but I’ve been recovering from an illness that started before our trip and only seemed to get worse with every day on the water. After a few days of intense recovery aided by a shot at the doctor’s office and prescription antibiotics, I think I […]

Hitting Our Stride On the Henry’s Fork

We’ve all settled in and had several days of fishing on the Henry’s Fork and surrounding waters. Honestly it’s been a mixed bag. Several of the folks in our group have been pretty hard on the fish and the fish have been pretty hard on a few folks, but everyone is having a great time. […]

Our Feet Are Wet In Yellowstone Country

After a somewhat traumatic airline experience, we’ve made it to the Henry’s Fork and Yellowstone Country. We typically make the drive from East Tennessee but this year we flew. Needless to say, it’s a pretty different experience. First and foremost, a drift boat doesn’t count as checked baggage so we’ll primarily be fishing from our […]

Update from Yellowstone Country

Our group has settled in to the routine here at TroutHunter. We’re eating breakfast around 7:30 and the guides are meeting up with the anglers around 8:30. Mornings are very cool with some frost so there’s no rush since the fishing tends to pick up as the day warms. So far we’ve had anglers fish […]
