The clear waters of the Henrys Fork of the Snake River are world-famous for its wild trout fishery as it winds through the mile-high caldera on the border of Yellowstone National Park. Trout Unlimited voted the Henrys Fork No. 1 out of 100 fly fishing rivers in the United States. Yet the Forest Service plans to log and burn more than one-third of the forested watershed that feeds this legendary river and do so with no environmental analysis, no public opportunity for review and comment, and no way to object without going to federal court to stop the destruction.
