"If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles."—Doug Larson
Lake Hery is home to various varieties of fish including:
Large Mouth Bass
Small Mouth Bass
A fishing license is required and can be purchased online in our store and printed for immediate use. You can also plan ahead and purchase a license at any Walmart, or at Hunter's Gallery in Hamlin, less than 10 minutes away.
We sell nightcrawlers and a limited supply of fishing equipment in our camp store.
Those who wish to fish can bring their own boat, rent a boat, or shore fish in our designated area.
Caution: Fishing Lake Henry is a privilege, not a right in itself. All persons using the lake are expected to act with consideration of others first and foremost. Clayton Park fisher-persons must use our protocol for fishing docks, and should not cast a rod within 20 feet of an unoccupied dock, and not within 100 feet of an occupied dock. Anyone reported to be violating this protocol is subject to losing the privilege of fishing Lake Henry.
