Henry’s Lake

Not much change here since our last report. But as we cool down and days shorten, changes are coming with respect to where to fish on the lake.  When we get  reports on the best locations for fall fishing, we will place that info here.

Same thing fishing-wise.  Go to the creek mouths (Targhee and Hope-Duck seem best to date), try mity mites, small( #10-12) bead head peacock leeches and crystal buggers.  Expect crowds if you get into good fishing.

We traveled by Henry’s Lake yesterday, and sure enough we could see boats stacked up in front of  Hope and Duck creeks. Off in the distance we thought we could see boats in front of Targhee Creek.  So that pretty much tells the story of where to fish the lake (try small prince nymphs, mity mites, small crystal buggers.) In front of the cliffs, you ask?  Only one boat was there when we went by.

No real change since Everet’s report a couple days ago. Action is at creek mouths, and use the flies he suggested. If you head to these locations, be ready to accept plenty of company that will increase if you get into good fishing.

Henrys is fishing good right now. Most of the action seems to be around Duck and Targhee creek in water from 5-12ft. Use any of your favorite leech patterns, but carry some smaller flies like the mity mouse and Henry’s Lake PT, scuds are always a good bet as well. There seems to be a real lack of big fish up there this year. There a lot of fish being caught, but not many of the big guys that have made Henry’s so famous. Most attribute this to an over stocking of the lake which can be quickly corrected, others are blaming ice fishing. Only time will tell, but the lake is fishing well regardless.

Creek mouths with cooler water provide the best fishing now. Trouble is there are almost as many anglers there as fish. We have a report of a four pound brookie being caught and released  at the mouth of Targhee Creek. Taking fly was a caddis pupa pattern, and we hear that caddis are quite active with fish responding to them around the lake.

Fishing seems to be holding up fairly well.   Creek mouths and spring holes are becoming the best places as fish seek cooler water. Try such as mity mites, small bead head peacock leeches, snail patterns, and your favorite small wooly bugger types.  By mid day there could be as many boats as fish around the best creek mouths, so go to boat launches before daybreak and don’t use your bright headlights.
