Henry's Fork - Island Park, Idaho

July 14-18, 2022

We’ll meet at the TroutHunter at 3 PM on the 14th for a group casting lesson with Millie Paini. Millie’s fun style and great experience will give you a chance to fine-tune your cast in preparation for the trip.

The Henry’s Fork is a legendary river and we'll spend three days fishing the heart of it from Island Park, Idaho. Karlie Roland and our TroutHunter guides focus on nine sections of the Henry’s Fork including "The Ranch"; they are some of the industry's best guides as recently featured in Angler's Journal. They know where to find the fish and have a great time on the water. 

July is a fabulous time to be on the river! Drakes, PMD's, Flavs and terrestrials. Oh, the options! The hatches are prolific and world reknown. People truly come from all corners of the world to fish these dates. They will go fast!

Four nights lodging and all meals are included.

Fly Shop & Guide Info

Karlie Rowland

Karlie grew up in Utah where fishing was the center of her family vacations, and summers were spent on the Henry’s Fork. At 21 she started working in her first fly shop job in Bozeman, Montana. Instantly sucked into the fishing industry, she moved to Seattle to pursue her passions of supporting more women anglers. It was there she ran the Women’s Program for Emerald Water Anglers. The endless concrete offered in Seattle began to burn her feet, and she now works for TroutHunter on the river that started it all - the Henry’s Fork.

Over the years, Karlie has traveled from the Rockies to the Pacific Northwest to Patagonia as part of her ongoing search for trout, salmon and steelhead. A tireless advocate for fisheries conservation and watershed protection, a passionate angler and educator.

She was just featured in Anglers Journal as one of the premier guides Nick Price had fished in his travels around the world. Not only is Karlie an amazing guide but a great teacher and a lot of fun to spend a day on the river with!

Millie Paini -Casting Instructor

A highly sought-after fly fishing and casting instructor, Millie has worked at TroutHunter since the doors opened in 1999. Over the years she has developed her own unique teaching style and particularly enjoys working with women and kids. “I think fishing is a very female friendly sport but intimidating to enter, because it is so male dominated. I love teaching women, giving them the skills and confidence, they need to walk into a river, because that’s where the magic happens — alone on the water.”

Millie has appeared in numerous fly-fishing films and print publications. At present she is a Patagonia Fly Fishing Ambassador and member of the Scott and Hatch Pro staffs.

She has fished all over the world including multiple islands in the Seychelles, Venezuela and British Columbia. Cuba and Mexico are more regular stops and fish like this one prove Millie knows how to get it done. When not chasing saltwater quarry around the world, she resides on the Henry’s Fork in Last Chance, Idaho with her husband, Rich, and daughter, Ella.
