Responses to damselflies still seems spotty with some action along the southwest corner of the lake. Try leech patterns on an intermediate line with a slow retrieve and with a blood worm trailer at other places. As the lake warms up be ready to fish creek mouths with traditional Henry’s Lake patterns.
Damselfly emergence is on-going. Head for the spring holes surrounded by vegetataion in not so deep water. Some of the best locations are along the west and southwest shoreline or near creek inlets. An intermediate line will do. So will your favorite damselfly nymph imitations. Best times will be when the wind is not blowing a gale.
Lot’s of interest here because of the upcoming damselfly emergence. Recently best results are had by fishing midge pupa under a strike indicator. But we have an indication the the fish are beginning to pay attention to damselfly nymph patterns. That old Henry’s Lake standby the Mity Mite has been producing in shallow water. So any day now damselfly nyphs will the only way.
Fishing remains slow, especially near shorelines. Best thing to do is get a good supply of damselfly nymphs whether you “tie or buy”. And get that intermediate line ready. Come the end of this month and into July, the damselfly emergence will be a great chance for you to get into a fish of the year.
