Rainbow Trout Population in the Box Canyon Remains Strong

Despite low flows in mid-May, Fish and Game biologists were still able to conduct their 25th population estimate in the Box Canyon reach of the Henrys Fork Snake River. This estimate is conducted in May on an annual basis and extends from the confluence with the Buffalo River downstream about 2.5 miles. Based on our long-term dataset extending back to 1994, the population estimate in Box Canyon this year (4,209 RBT/mile) is among the top 5 highest on record.

We typically launched the electrofishing boats by 8:30 a.m. and concluded daily removals by 3:00 p.m., though we started later (10:00 a.m.) on Mondays to avoid crowding with boat anglers below Palisades Dam.
