Mesa Falls

Ashton, Idaho

Pack your rod, reel, and the appropriate amount of fly fishing zen, and head to Henry's Fork in southeastern Idaho. A haven for gargantuan trout, this spring-fed tributary of the Snake River undulates for approximately 127 ever-changing miles. With both cascading, white-water falls and slower-moving creeks, this diverse water phenomenon shows many faces. Flowing through piney forests, grasslands, meadows, and a soaring canyon, Henry's Fork's value as a spawning stream ranks it as the best trout fishing destination in the United States.
