Spring Fly Fishing

Henderson Springs is a 500 acre fly-fishing paradise located in the remote northern California wilderness. Four spectacular lakes and a 1/2 mile meandering spring creek offer some of the most exciting trophy trout fishing found anywhere. These catch and release waters are open only to our guests, ensuring a private and unpressured fishery. Henderson Springs is a fly-fishing only resort (no spin or bait fishing) catering to serious adult anglers (children 12 years of age or older are welcome).

Back country fly-fishing here is a unique experience. Henderson Springs offers privacy and unparalleled exposure to nature ~ you are bound to spot soaring eagles, nesting honkers, turkey, quail, otter, beaver, deer, fox, or an occasional bear or mountain lion.

Adjacent to the deck is an extra large 75 foot long salt water swimming pool with spa, perfect for laps, playing or just relaxing. The combination solar and gas heating system keeps the pool and spa at an optimal temperature throughout the season. A minimum of a three-day stay is required. A single day of fishing and lodging may be arranged on a fill-in basis by contacting Henderson Springs.

Main Lodge Dining

The Last Supper 1. The Ranch has a chef/caterer - Melisa Hebert (530 339-6695) - that provides "full service" meal plans and our customers may choose which they would prefer. The meal service is offered directly by Melisa and she should be contacted directly for making meal arrangements and payment.

2. However, a group who has booked the entire Main Lodge (eight rooms), may elect to bring their own food and do their own cooking in the fully appointed kitchen of the main lodge. Smaller groups or individuals may NOT bring food and prepare their own meals in the Main Lodge.

In either case, we are here to ensure that you have a good time and all of your needs are met.



Just a 4-1/2 hour drive from either Sacramento or the Bay area will land you in this pristine and comfortable mountain hideaway. (See Map)
