Henry's Fork Water Supply Outlook Improves

Snowpack throughout the Henry’s Fork watershed has improved substantially over the past month, particularly in the area north of Ashton. Snow-water-equivalent as a percent of the 30-year median is currently 120% in the upper Henry’s subwatershed, 131% in Fall River, and 135% in the Teton.

Based on March 1 snowpack and on stream base flows we experienced during the winter, Rob predicts that natural streamflow for April, May and June will be 121% of average at Henry’s Lake, 91% of average between Henry’s Lake and Island Park Dam, and 88% of average for the whole watershed upstream of Ashton.

Rob will be updating water-supply information at least weekly from now through the month of June, as conditions always change rapidly during the spring. Check his blog HERE for these updates. Or, if you prefer to receive his daily updates via email, send him a request at

Have You Gotten Your Raffle Tickets Yet?

The Research and Restoration Raffle raises money for projects that improve the wild trout fisheries of the Henry’s Fork. Each year, HFF restores wild trout fisheries habitat, helps make fish passage projects a reality, and ensures there is enough water in the river for young trout during critical winter months.  This year we are focusing on our Stream Gage project. 

Optimal management of water and fisheries resources in the Henry’s Fork requires real-time knowledge of streamflow. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)  stream gauge network is sufficient for delivery of irrigation water and accounting of water rights, but real-time gaging is lacking locations where it could specifically benefit fisheries. Unfortunately, the number of stream gages operated by USGS is decreasing, not increasing. Therefore, HFF has decided to install and operate its own stream gages at locations that will complement USGS stations. 

You can support our Stream Gage project and have a chance to win one of these five prizes by contributing to the raffle!

Thank You for a Successful Salt Lake Reception

Our Salt Lake event was a great success! It was a wonderful evening with friends coming together to support a great cause. Thank you to our Salt Lake chair, Pete Taylor and planning committee for making the event happen. The room was filled with just a little over 240 in attendance. Keynote speakers, Dr. Rob Van Kirk, and artist, Dave Hall moved the audience to a standing ovation with their words.

Our work would not be possible without the generosity and support of our members. Thank you for another amazing year!
