Study Reveals Ideal Conditions For Wild Trout in Harriman State Park 
We began a study this spring that will help reveal the habitat trout seek in the famed Ranch section of the Henry's Fork. A thorough assessment of river habitat at 180 random points in the Henry's Fork between the upper Harriman State Park boundary and Osborne Bridge was used to document what habitat is available during the first two weeks of the fishing season. It's the first time a habitat assessment like this has been done within Harriman State Park.

Water temperature and dissolved oxygen concentration were nearly ideal for trout activity and growth. A daily pattern of increasing oxygen concentration throughout the morning and afternoon also showed that photosynthesis by aquatic plants was producing more oxygen than organisms were using, indicating a healthy aquatic ecosystem. Habitat conditions at the sample points will be measured again in August and September to investigate how conditions change throughout the season.
