9/21/18 Prospect Report: Henry Sever Lake

Associated Area

Driving Directions

One mile north of Newark on Route KK. The west side of the lake can be accessed by traveling west of Newark on Highway 156, and north one mile on Route E. This conservation area lake includes a concrete boat ramp, two fishing jetties, a disabled-accessible fishing dock, privies, a picnic pavilion, and primitive camping. 

Channel catfish and blue catfish fishing continue to be the most popular activities on this lake.  Fish exceeding 10 pounds are commonly reported. Muskellunge anglers have had much success in recent years and good fishing should continue in 2019. About three of every ten muskellunge will exceed 36 inches long. Muskies are most active between the western parking lot and the dam, especially near points and cover. Anglers may combine fishing opportunities as largemouth bass and muskellunge will strike the same lures. Largemouth bass are abundant, and four of every ten bass will exceed 15 inches long. Crappie are also abundant, and although there are a few crappie over 15 inches long in the lake, most are less than 10 inches long. Water clarity varies on this 160 acre lake and is dependent on recent rainfall.
