Fly Shop And Guided Services: Pure Heaven For Fishermen

The Fly Shop specializes  in still water guiding on Henry’s Lake and Private waters at Sheridian Ranch. Guide outfitters held under Eagle Ridge Ranch. They carry Flies, Echo Products, Airflo, Moonlit Leaders and  Products and all fishing tackle including worms needed for your fishing adventure.

Henry’s Lake

Henry’s Lake is just before the Montana border, located only 15 miles west of Yellowstone National Park. The state park is open in summer and fall for anglers to fish for cutthroat, brook and rainbow-cutthroat hybrid trout.  Another source for the Henry’s Fork comes from Big Springs, where 120 million gallons of water bubble up into the water each day.  The Big Spring Nature Trail, six miles north of the Island Park Ranger Station, is a half-mile, handicap-accessible trail that provides great viewing of osprey, bald eagles, waterfowl and an occasional moose, deer or muskrat.

Mesa Falls

Upper and lower Mesa Falls have views of Island Park caldera’s edge. The dramatic drops were created between 600,000 and two million years ago. It looks like a curtain of water and is as tall as a ten story building. The falls pour over remnants of an ancient volcanic super-eruption that spewed ash over much of the current US. A mile south, Lower Mesa Falls repeats the performance; the river continually chiseling away at the solidified ash and lava. Some layers are more than a million years old. Today, Upper and Lower Mesa Falls are the last prominent waterfalls on the Snake River to resist human control.
