The South Fork Joins HFF's Water Quality Monitoring Network

The South Fork Initiative's first water quality monitoring site is now live on the HFF data website. Anglers and partners can now view real-time information on water temperature, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, conductivity and more for the upper South Fork just below Palisades Dam. Plus, two more South Fork sites are on deck to be installed later this year!

What You Might Have Missed - Special Highlight
IDFG Upper Snake Fisheries Newsletter January 2020

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) released it's January newsletter with some great news about Henry's Lake. Below is an excerpt from the newsletter, written by Brett High, Regional Fisheries Manager for the Upper Snake Region.

"What a year 2019 was for Henrys Lake! 

Those of you who fished it last season know exactly what I’m talking about. We may all use different adjectives to describe the fishing last year, but no matter how you phrase it, consensus is ‘it was good’. But how good was it? How did Henrys Lake fishing in 2019 compare to recent years?

Every three years, IDFG conducts a survey of anglers on Henrys Lake in effort to answer this question. The results from the most recent survey are hot off the press. The three main things the survey quantifies are how fast did anglers catch fish (how many fish caught per hour), how much time did anglers spend fishing the lake, and how many fish were caught on the lake. The survey is called a creel survey. Here are the results from our 2019 creel survey on Henrys Lake:....."

Trout in the Classroom Kicks Off for 2020
Education and Outreach Coordinator Kamberlee Allison met with Ashton Elementary's 5th grade classes last month to kick off another year of Trout in the Classroom (TIC). These 30+ students will be introduced to the trout life cycle, the aquatic web of life, and trout anatomy through lessons every other week, taught by Kamberlee and other HFF staff, and based on the Idaho Department of Fish & Game's Trout in the Classroom curriculum. The students will also raise the trout eggs into fingerlings, which they will release in Harriman State Park on a field trip in May. 

Stay tuned for more updates on TIC 2020 activities. Visit here to learn more about our Youth Education programs or here to donate.

HFF Welcomes Law Extern from University of Idaho Law School

This past year, thanks to support from David and Susan Wishney and other generous donors, HFF and the University of Idaho College of Law partnered to create a new “Semester in Practice", partnering law students with experienced lawyers and judges, to bridge the gap between theory and the real-world practice of law. This semester-in-practice experience will allow students to observe and immerse themselves in the day-to-day workings of HFF, interacting with staff and volunteers at the HFF campus, and researching and investigating laws affecting river conservation.

Meet HFF's first law extern, Matthew Ryan:

I am a third-year law student at the University of Idaho, with an emphasis in Native American Natural Resource Law. I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Idaho in International Relations, also studying Political Science and German. This year I will be doing research on different legal processes that could impact the Foundation's work and the repercussions of changing legal standards on the management of the Henry’s Fork watershed, especially as they impact strategic planning for the foundation. After graduating law school and passing the bar, I would like to work in the area of environmental law with either conservation groups or Native American tribes. Growing up in Idaho, I am excited to work with Henry’s Fork Foundation to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy its natural beauty and bounty as I have.
