    Henrys Fork–Pine Haven to Ashton Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "Pine Haven to Warm River—This remote area is highly rated for scenic beauty and is a good spot to get away from humans. However, you must work inordinately hard to get into fish on this water. Over the years I’ve floated the tricky whitewaters. I’ve four-wheeled into the canyon and descended carefully to fish all the remote sections. I’ve even dragged a boat down Bear Gulch and floated out. Yet despite these gargantuan efforts, I’ve not found enough quality fish here to justify all the hard work. The possible exception is the area upstream of Riverside Campground. Mayfly and caddis hatches on the flat water and a lingering salmonfly hatch make this area quite enjoyable. It’s also more accessible. From the Mesa Falls Scenic Byway (Highway 47) look for any number of forest roads that lead to the canyon.

    Floating is recommended as the best way to work this entire section of river. Take-out is either at Ashton (Wendell) Bridge on Highway 20 or at the boat ramp in the backwaters of Ashton Reservoir. Types of Fish: Mostly rainbow trout with increasing numbers of brown trout below Mesa Falls. This trail guide covers the “where, when, and how: to fish in this region. You’ll get a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to bring, and the best flies to use."
