Henrys lake has been hot this year for anglers and being covered with ice hasn't changed that. Due to the cold snap this October, the lake froze a bit earlier than usual. Some individuals were seen venturing onto the newly formed ice as early Halloween.

This September Fish and Game along with staff from the Friends of the Teton River conducted fish population surveys using mark/recapture on two monitoring reaches on the Teton River. These surveys are conducted every other year and provide valuable information to help guide fisheries management decisions. For example, the daily bag limit for rainbow trout in the Teton River was recently changed to an unlimited daily harvest in response to increasing numbers of rainbow trout in the river. Fisheries managers hope to use increased harvest of the non-native rainbows to benefit the native Yellowstone cutthroat trout population. Counting fish numbers at specific locations and at regular intervals allows Fish and Game to track changes in the populations through time. This is valuable information for making informed management decisions.
