No real change in the past few days. Best action is along the southwest corner of the lake and near the State Park. Action along the north shore is picking up, but will really get going as we cool off further. Scud patterns remain very effective, and small leech patterns will work.
Fish are moving to shallow water, but fishing has been a bit spotty in some places. Right now best shallow water fishing on the lake is around the State Park where there are plenty of places to wade. Leech patterns in fall colors on intermediate lines result in the best chances for action.
If you can bear the weather, Henry’s Lake is producing some great fishing. Almost anywhere in shallow water and along creek mouths, your favorite leech patterns will get action. Use intermediate lines for shallow water presentations and dress warmly. Beware of the wind if you plan to get out on the lake. Consider fishing sheltered areas and be ready to act if wind directions change.
Continued unsettled weather is in the forecast, and this bodes well for fishing the lake. Best fishing will be in shallower water where your favorite leech and streamer patterns will be effective. Dress warmly and consider the winds before you venture out onto the lake.
Fishing is really picking up here. This includes along shorelines. Intermediate lines are the ticket, whether you are on the shoreline or in a boat. Taking patterns include your favorite leech pattern, halloweens, mity mouse, Henry’s Lake renegade, Henry’s Lake nymph, Carey specials, etc. Look for fishing to be best during periods of the famed Henry’s Lake weather!
Fish are beginning to move into shallow water, so shoreline fishing is just beginning. Cooler weather like today will help bring it on. When it begins in earnest, any small leech pattern will be effective, and intermediate lines will be the best choice
