Henry’s Lake

Jimmy's All Seasons Angler / Henry’s Lake (Page 9)

Henry’s Lake 9-15-12

We have heard of no big change from the creek mouths and spring holes being the places to fish on the lake.  These  locations still attract a lot of interest because so many other regional still waters  have been drawn down to the point where they offer marginal fishing.  Thus many “displaced still water  anglers” are heading to Henry’s Lake to enjoy some good fishing.  That means expect company at these favored locations

We’ve had reports of good fishing early in the last few days before the wind kicked in. Yesterday it was strong enough to send  many boats off the lake.  Creek mouths were good locations with Targhee Creek leading the pack and Howard Creek coming on.

Fishing is picking up now. Creek mouths remain the place to go for action using mity mites, peacock leeches, crystal buggers and black coppers.  But with cooler weather here and more to come, fishing all around the lake should pick up even more.  Folks are concerned about the size of fish being caught, but the better news is that with so many fish in the lake there will be plenty for all anglers to enjoy.

Not much change since our last report on Henry’s Lake.  Fishing success is likely to pick up as we cool off, but that means visiting anglers will not diminish much.  Being such a great fishery it’s to be expected!

Not much change here since our last report. But as we cool down and days shorten, changes are coming with respect to where to fish on the lake.  When we get  reports on the best locations for fall fishing, we will place that info here.

Same thing fishing-wise.  Go to the creek mouths (Targhee and Hope-Duck seem best to date), try mity mites, small( #10-12) bead head peacock leeches and crystal buggers.  Expect crowds if you get into good fishing.

We traveled by Henry’s Lake yesterday, and sure enough we could see boats stacked up in front of  Hope and Duck creeks. Off in the distance we thought we could see boats in front of Targhee Creek.  So that pretty much tells the story of where to fish the lake (try small prince nymphs, mity mites, small crystal buggers.) In front of the cliffs, you ask?  Only one boat was there when we went by.

No real change since Everet’s report a couple days ago. Action is at creek mouths, and use the flies he suggested. If you head to these locations, be ready to accept plenty of company that will increase if you get into good fishing.
