Right now Henry’s Lake is the star of eastern Idaho’s fishing show. Go there and you will have your chances for beautiful cutts and brookies and hard fighting hybrids. Here’s some “where and how” information. Water temps are in the mid forties. Fish are in shallow water all around the lake. That means use either an intermediate or slow sinking line. Use a stout leader(1x or 2x) with either. Effective flies to our knowledge include brown or purple Canadian mohair leeches (with bead), bead head peacock leech, California leech, and halloween, all in sizes 6-10. We have all these in stock. Locations you ask? Hybrids seem scattered around the lake. Lots of cutts and brookies are cruising along the shoreline within easy casting reach at the State Park, but a lot of folks are there. From here walk over to Howard Creek where fish are fewer, but so are anglers. It is very easy to launch a float tube or pontoon boat at the State Park to get out in the lake a few hundred feet and have great fishing back toward the shoreline. Anywhere along the north shore you will find good numbers of cutts and brookies cruising. The hatchery makes for good access for either wading or launching a float tube or pontoon boat. So does the pull-out at the northwest corner of the lake above Pintail Point. Wade the shallows in front of the tree line on the north shore. Fish are also present in shallows along the west shore line and in front of the cliffs but boating is the best way to fish. For the next day or two weather looks fantastic at the lake. Next week will be a different story, so plan for wind, squalls and cold air temps then.
