General Info:

Henderson Springs is a 500 acre wildlife, fly fishing and outdoor-lifestyle paradise in remote Northern California. It contains four spectacular lakes and nearly a half mile of meandering spring-fed meadow creek, two ponds and many springs. Currently operated as a prime fly fishing-only destination resort, Henderson Springs is surrounded by wilderness. This waterfront ranch property would make a phenomenal family compound in a nature preserve-like setting.

Numerous artesian springs bubble forth on the property, supplying fresh, cold water for the lake’s fish and wildlife, making for happy fishermen as well. Of particular note is the Hexagenia Mayfly hatch occurring on the lakes in May and June, this gigantic mayfly entices the lake’s largest fish to feed on the surface with total abandon. Additionally, down the road from Henderson Springs is the Pit River, renowned for its blue ribbon trout fishing.
