Upper Henry's Fork Snowpack Reaches 100%

of Median 

Map from January 10th, 2017 to depict the geographic locations of the Sno-Tel sites.
Heavy snowfall in early February has finally brought snow water equivalent (SWE) in the upper Henry’s Fork subwatershed (Crab Creek, White Elephant, Black Bear, and Island Park Sno-Tel sites) to 100% of the long-term median. However, elevations up to 8,000 feet recently experienced rain, which will add additional water to the snowpack, but greatly increases the probability for another year of early snowmelt and runoff. As we saw with early runoff last year, runoff timing is crucial. Keep your fingers crossed for more snow and cold temperatures.

Fish Passage Monitoring on the Buffalo River Begins Again

Monitoring of the Buffalo River fish ladder is scheduled to begin again later this month. Research Associate, Bryce, and Conservation Technician, Ben, will snowshoe and cross-country ski their way to the fish ladder multiple times each week to monitor Rainbow Trout migration around spawning season. For a quick recap of what we learned in 2016, take a look at our "Buffalo River -- Spring Monitoring Summary" blog.

What You Might Have Missed: Special Highlight

Earlier this month, HFF shared the following message on Facebook in response to the news that Utah Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz planned to withdraw a bill ordering the sale or disposal of over 3.3 million acres of public land. 

"A huge THANK YOU to all the hunters, anglers, and outdoor enthusiasts who spoke up for public lands. We may not all recreate the same way, or in the same places, but we all benefit from public lands."

After hearing from hunters, anglers, and outdoor enthusaists who opposed the bill, Representative Chaffetz said in his statement "I hear you and HR 621 dies tomorrow. #keepitpublic". HFF's message also included a link to the Idaho Statesman article covering this announcement.
