Committed to a Healthy Future for the Henry's Fork


From the very beginning, the success of this Foundation has relied upon the commitment of a community of people who believe the Henry’s Fork is worth protecting. That spirit of commitment, passion, and dedication was reflected in the founding members, the first staff members, and now in a growing staff of sixteen people from across the country, all drawn here by a common goal – to ensure the fisheries and waters we love are thriving for decades to come. 

We are proud of what has been achieved for the Henry’s Fork over the years; the Foundation has leveraged donations of time and resources for positive results beyond expectations. However, we faced a harsh reality in 2016 when we learned that our approach was not enough in the face of record drought. Your support has brought great value to this river, but now we must do more. 

We must be innovators and leaders to find lasting solutions to the challenges posed by an ever changing water supply. Our experienced, driven staff is up for the challenge, pioneering programs and building partnerships that will bring benefits to our fisheries at a scale greater than ever before. But we need your support and commitment to this river now more than ever before.

Please help us bring the next level of meaningful conservation and programs to life on the Henry’s Fork.

Below are the updated donor recognition levels:

Green Drake Bronze Level - $2,500 +

Green Drake Silver Level - $5,000 +

Green Drake Gold Level - $10,000 +


HFF's New Water-Quality Data Website is Now Live, Featuring Ora Bridge

Six years in the making, HFF's new real-time water-quality data website is now LIVE! HFF has been collecting millions of data points each year, but wanted to put that information in the hands of anglers in real-time. This new website, built by HFF's Research Associate, Melissa is designed to be user friendly -- allowing anglers and the public to view water temperatures, dissolved oxygen, and turbidity data (to name a few) at sites along the river in real-time. So far, sites downstream of Island Park Dam, Pinehaven, St. Anthony and -- new this week -- downstream of Ora Bridge are all transmitting data live. 

Check it out HERE to explore the site and learn more.

Thank You for Making Our First South Fork Gala a Success

On Friday, July 26, the Henry’s Fork Foundation hosted the first annual South Fork Gala on the beautiful banks of the South Fork Snake River. Over one hundred people attended the Gala to enjoy a fantastic evening socializing with old and new friends, listen to retired Idaho Department of Fish and Game Director, Virgil Moore's keynote address, and help support the Henry’s Fork Foundation - South Fork Initiative program. For a first time event, the South Fork Gala was a huge success! Thank you to all the sponsors, donors, and participants who made the event such a memorable evening!
