IDAHO GIVES ~ APRIL 29 - MAY 2, 2024

The DIRTT Plan: Developing Infrastructure to Reduce Temperature and Turbidity

For the Future of the Henry's Fork Fisheries


Breathtaking scenery and iconic hatches are among the reasons we return to the Henry's Fork year-after-year. Decades of research are now all telling us the same thing -- Island Park Reservoir is the center of the universe, the lynchpin of our water quality and this fishery's health.


That's why HFF is launching the major-scale DIRTT Plan. We're developing plans to improve water temperature and turbidity, build resilience for the river, and protect not only fish, wildlife, and habitat, but the jobs and economy that depend on them.  This could include engineering, infrastructure, and restoration of tributaries. Science-backed solutions to reduce sediment export from the reservoir and increase cold, oxygenated refuge for our critical fish and insect communities.


Anglers come from all over the nation to experience the magic of the Henry's Fork. We may be fortunate here on the Henry's Fork compared to most, but that doesn't mean we can't be on the leading edge of understanding, and addressing, these issues.
