Hensley Lake was once home to the Miwok and Yokut Native American Tribes. It is about 35-40 miles Northwest of Clovis, less than a 1-hour drive. Visitors enjoy boating, fishing, water skiing and other watersports. This lake area is also renown for the Buck Ridge mountain bike trail. Lake fishing is known to be particularly good in the coves found along the lake’s shoreline, where you can find largemouth black bass, crappie, bluegill and catfish. On another side of the lake, there’s a beach for swimming, hiking, equestrian trails, and even a disc golf course!
