Henry’s Fork at Chester (Chester Dam and River with Pelicans)

 

I’ve been visiting, and photographing, and fishing near Chester Dam for years (a post with pics from 2006 can be found here). Recently they installed a small hydro plant and a fish ladder. I suppose it’s OK. I miss the aesthetics of the old dam.

Fun Farm Bridge on the Henry’s Fork near Chester

I go to the fun farm area of the Henry’s Fork a lot. It’s great for fly-fishing, birding, and making photographs. It’s just a cool place. In the summer, I often see kids jumping off the bridge. I’ve often thought I should photograph it, but have always been too busy, distracted, shy or whatever to photograph it. The other night I made it a point to head up with the specific task of photographing bridge jumpers. I’m not sure which is my favorite, so I’m posting three of them here.

Coffee Pot Rapids

Coffee Pot Rapids is a turbulent section of the Henry’s Fork between Mack’s Inn and Island Park Reservoir. It’s about as lovely as it gets.

Perfect Evening of Fishing on the Lower Henry’s Fork

Last night I fished the Henry’s Fork for the first time this year. It was beautiful (calm, overcast, warm). I caught 5-6 fish, all big, and all on dries. It was about as perfect as it gets.

Fun Farm Ice Dam

So, it’s been a pretty cold winter and much of the lower Henry’s Fork has been iced over. It’s been a bit warmer lately and the river was really breaking up this morning. The chunks of ice were forming a pretty nice ice dam near Fun Farm Bridge. Here’s the view looking downstream.

Snowy Fallen Tree, Warm Slough WMA

While scouting for the Rexburg Christmas Bird count I encountered this beautiful scene at the boat launch on the Henry’s Fork at Warm Slough. I took a few photographs. This is probably my favorite.

Snowy Foggy Morning (hard to come by this winter)

We got a nice little snow storm last night (maybe 3″). It’s not much, but this has been a mild winter, so we’ll take it. As it started to warm up this morning, it also started to get foggy. I ran out for a couple of hours this morning and made a few photographs. It was really a beautiful morning.
