The Henry's Fork in 2022

What You Might Have Missed


We share a lot of information about the river throughout the year, and we know it can be a lot. In case you missed it, here are a few highlights from 2022.



Drought and a Changing Climate

Impacts on Fishing Conditions

Full details on insect populations and fishing conditions are available in the full 2022 technical report, and also available in our newsletters, river update emails, social media and HFF blog.

What You’ve Made Possible

I really don't like to say it, and I know it's not a very inspirational message, but things would have been quite a bit worse without the crucial work you made possible in 2022. Record low water supply and changing climate had set up a very tough year.

However, our work with partners has measurably reduced the negative effects of drought, through improved fish survival and fishing experience, at a level unprecedented across the West. That is only possible thanks to your support.

Impact

  • 112 cfs increase in winter flow from Island Park Dam

  • 126 cfs reduction in summertime outflow

  • 980 fish added to the Box Canyon population per year

  • 25,000 acre-feet of water saved in Island Park Reservoir per year

Looking Ahead

We know our work is not done and we are driven to do more to not only conserve this fishery, but improve the fishing experience for all those who enjoy it.
