Thank You for the BEST Year-End Giving We've Had!


We want to give a big THANK YOU to those of you who have generously donated this giving season! Your year-end giving was the best in the history of the Foundation!  Your generosity has helped us successfully launch 2017 and has been essential to ensuring another year of conserving, preserving, and restoring the legendary wild trout of the Henry’s Fork.

We appreciate your continued support and are grateful for such dedicated members.  We look forward to continuing to work together with you to maintain this wonderful place.

Mid-Winter Snowpack Update

We are now about halfway through the snow accumulation season in the Snake River basin, a good time to assess the amount of water in the snowpack. As is evident from the latest snow-water-equivalent (SWE) map (see button below), the Henry’s Fork basin sits at a transition between above-average snowpack to our south and below-average snowpack to our north. Although SWE is slightly above average for the Henry’s Fork watershed as a whole (including the Teton River), SWE is still below average at all of the snow survey sites in the Henry’s Fork watershed upstream of Ashton.

Although we remain cautiously optimistic that late-winter storms will increase snowpack in and around Island Park, current trends are indicating another year of below-average water supply in the upper Henry’s Fork watershed.

What You Missed in HFF News: Special Highlight

"Fly-fishing legend and catch-and-release pioneer Bud Lilly, 91, dies"

Photo and excerpt taken from article in the Missoulian by DAVID McCUMBER

Bud Lilly, who became one of Montana’s best-known fly-fishermen and pioneered the catch-and-release ethic that saved wild trout fisheries and powered a huge expansion in the state’s outdoor economy, died Wednesday. He was 91.

While he grew famous in the sport as a guide – he guided the rich and famous, including media stars like Dan Rather, Curt Gowdy and Charles Kuralt – and as the owner of a legendary West Yellowstone fly shop – where Jimmy Carter once visited him – he will be remembered most for everything he gave back to the sport.
