Henry’s Lake

Henry’s Lake 9-10-19

This cool weather has help action pick up all around the lake. Leech patterns seem most effective. Black or olive leech patterns are working. So are Halloweens and California leeches.  Present all these using intermediate lines.

We have some reports that using small leech patterns presented on an intermediate line is interesting smaller fish on Henry’s Lake. Try the creek mouths (Targhee, Hope, Duck, etc).  Get to these locations as early as possible, and as usual,  expect company to move in.

Spotty fishing at best. Black leeches presented near bottom seem to work. We have heard more about the recent winds that whip the surface into near impossible conditions. Let’s hope that winds calm down and that a remnant of the once famed damsel fly emergence improves the fishing.

Pintail Point at Henrys Lake now open to public through F&G’s Access Yes! program

Pintail Point, a piece of private property along Henrys Lake, has enrolled in Idaho Fish and Games’ Access Yes! program. Access Yes! is a program designed to improve access to private land or through private land to public land by compensating willing landowners who provide access. The Pintail Point property was enrolled by the owners for a five year period and grants public access to 296 yards of lakeshore.

No boat launch is available at the site, but it is a popular spot for anglers to hop into a float tube. No fires or overnight camping are allowed and vehicles are restricted to existing roads.

Landowner notification is not required on the Pintail Point property but Fish and Game asks users to be respectful and keep the area free from garbage and vandalism. Respecting these parcels of private land will help to ensure future use by the public and open up additional access opportunities elsewhere.

Henry’s Lake 5-11-19

Ice has been off the lake for about a week, and the flow out of the lake has been at least double of normal for about a month.  This suggests that a good fishing season is coming up for the river through the Nature Conservancy’s Flat Ranch Preserve.

Henry’s Lake 11/9/18

Henry’s Lake is frozen as of today 11/9/18. The ice is not thick enough to ice fish and most likely wont be for a few more days depending on air temps and wind. There is always a chance a big wind storm may open the lake back up, but its probably best to plan to hit stillwaters to the south for the year.
