Henry’s Lake

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!

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.

The best activity here would be to go to the tying bench and produce damselfly nymphs for the emergence beginning around the end of the month.  If you need to get out, head for deeper water to try midging or presenting scud patterns.

Slow is the word, but get those damselfly nymphs ready for the end of the month. Your best pattern for success now would be scuds in various colors as the weed growth has begun and harbors a growing population of these insects.
