Henry’s Lake

Jimmy's All Seasons Angler / Henry’s Lake (Page 23)

The creek mouths and spring holes now offer the best fishing all around the lake.  These may tend to get crowded, so get there early or stay late to get a favorite location.  Some of the Henry’s Lake classics such as mity mouse, renegade and smaller crystal buggers are the way to go at these locations.

Action through damselfly activity remains spotty.  West side is best.  Now the best action is at creek mouths, particularly Targhee Creek. A lot of fish have migrated there to enjoy the cooler water flowing in, but the number of anglers is also numerous to enjoy the active fish.

Damselfly action remains spotty.  Best fishing seems around the north shore for those presenting leech patterns.  Creek mouths are beginning to kick in as trout migrate to the cooler water coming in.

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.

Fishing remains spotty even though damselfly nymphs are numerous.  The west side seems to provide the best action for now.   Let’s see what a week of real summer weather coming up will do.

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.

Anticipation is up for the damselfly emergence, the next big event here.  It may be underway already with the question as to when will fish begin keying on them.  Get those damselfly nymph patterns ready!
