Discovering a Tributary's Contribution to Wild Trout in the Henry's Fork
On January 15, we took another step toward discovering how habitat in the Buffalo River contributes to the Henry's Fork. HFF staff, volunteers, and contractors installed an antenna on the Buffalo River fish ladder to detect tiny micro-chip tags that were implanted in juvenile rainbow trout last fall as they migrated upstream.

The antenna is encased in a 10-foot by 3-foot rectangle made of PVC pipe (shown below) and records the unique identification number of each tagged fish as it swims through the rectangle on its way back down to the Henry's Fork. The chips, known as Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) tags, provide us with an efficient way to track winter survival of young fish and to distinguish the tagged fish from those that were spawned in the in the Buffalo River (no tag). The results of this study will help us determine the magnitude of the Buffalo River's contribution to the Henry's Fork wild trout population.
Three Spots Left on Alaska Fishing Trip  

In August, we will host an exclusive fishing trip to Alaska's Rainbow King Lodge at Lake Iliamna. There are only three spots left on this trip so call us today to secure your spot. With each trip you will learn about the work being done by the Foundation, get to know our Executive Director and Conservation Fund Director, meet HFF board members, and enjoy incredible fishing.

HFF Brings Trout to the Classroom 

Trout in the Classroom has returned to the fifth grade for 2014. This program, which we introduced to Ashton Elementary in 2010, works to engage students in the biological sciences through the rearing of rainbow trout in the classroom. For the remainder of the school year, HFF will use the trout and the Henry's Fork watershed to teach the student's state required science themes pertaining to ecosystems, food chains, and life cycles, while also connecting kids to caring for their watershed. Currently the students are marveling at watching their 75 eggs hatch and transform from alevins to feeding fry.
