Fishing at Henrys Lake promises to be excellent

“Henrys Lake should be excellent fishing this year,” Jenn Vincent, Idaho Department of Fish and Game Regional Fishery Biologist said this week. “We had a great spawning season with over 1,000 fish running into the hatchery, a great winter survival after a great end of the year fishing last fall and winter.

We saw some large cutthroats run into the hatchery this spring, so we are looking forward to a great opening on May 23. “The numbers are off the chart with fish still running up the tributaries and even up some small streamlets caused by the run-off,” commented Mike Wilson, owner of the Drift Lodge Fly Shop near the lake. “The ice broke up on May 6 but the fish are still in the shallows as we have about 200 pelicans working from the A-Frame Bay, north to Staley Springs and then east to Timber Creek. Where you see pelicans there are fish there.”
