Current Henry’s Fork Water Update  

 
 
 
 
As the current water year has developed, it has become even more obvious that the Henry’s Fork Basin is changing. Taking a look back, these past four years on the Henry’s Fork have been four of the driest consecutive years on record since the late 1930s and early 1940s. The Foundation has been sharing statistics on this trend for over 18 months. That is our current reality. It is also not as simple as conditions just being “dry”. The true measure meaningful to growing fish and irrigating crops is water yield into the river. For reasons including lower average snowpack, earlier runoff, maturing forests (forest succession), and longer growing seasons, the Henry’s Fork watershed is not the same as it was in the 1980s and 1990s, much less the 1970s. According to the Bureau of Reclamation, total water yield has been only 64% of normal during the current water year.

HFF Celebrates 5th Annual Trout in the Classroom  

 
 
 
 
This month we celebrated our 5th annual "Youth on the Fly" event with Ashton Elementary! Eleven students joined guides from Henry's Fork Anglers, Trout Hunter, Three Rivers Ranch, and Teton Valley Lodge for a day of fishing on the Henry's Fork. The group floated Warm River to Ashton and caught as many as 20 fish per boat! Not bad for some rising 6th-graders!

A special thank you to the incredible guides who made this day possible, to Patagonia for donating hats for the kids, and to the Voigt Foundation, Jack Roberts, and Bill Hurst who made sure each student went home with the fly rod and reel they had been learning with all day.  Follow us on Facebook for more photos and videos from this day.​​
 
 
 
 
 

Don C. Byers Intern Hunter Hill Focuses on Fencing

 
 
 
 
Hunter Hill is this year's Don C. Byers Memorial Scholarship intern. The internship this year has a strong focus on fencing, so Hunter will be in Island Park 2-3 days each week to walk fence lines and repair fence in an effort to prevent cattle from getting into the river.

If you see him out there, be sure to say 'Hi' and give him a helping hand by closing gates and leaving fencing up and secured. Each wire is important, high and low, to keep cows from the river.
 
 
 
 

Idaho Water Law Seminar September 12-13 

 
 
 
 
The 10th annual Idaho Water Law Seminar will be held September 12-13 in Boise. HFF’s Senior Scientist Rob Van Kirk has been invited to speak at this seminar and will give a presentation on hydrologic effects of land-use changes. The seminar features other topics of immediate relevance to the current water-management we challenges we face on the Henry’s Fork, including private managed aquifer recharge and the recent settlement between surface and groundwater users. 

We encourage HFF members who wish to learn more about the current legal and hydrologic complexities of water management in Idaho to attend this seminar.

More details are available HERE.
