Harriman Lake and Henry's Lake - Jefferson County
Aliases: Henry's Lake
Ownership: None Listed
Description: These two small lakes near Marston are dwarfed by their larger relative, but definitely worth a look if you are in the area. Both have produced Greater Scaup on numerous occasions, and who knows what other goodies could show up? Harriman Lake has a nice trail around it, and some small groves of tress along the edge. Henry's Lake is only scannable from the side of a busy road, and given its location next to a Federal prison, use of a scope may not be the wisest course. Use your best judgment.

Habitat: Lake, Lowland Riparian
Directions: Both of these roads are along Quincy Ave. For Henry's Lake, drive west on Quicy from Wadsworth for less than half a mile and pull off on the south side of the road to scan the lake. For Harriman Lake, take Quincy a mile west of Wadsworth to Kipling St., and take a left (south). The parking lot for the lake is on the right (west) almost immediately.
