The warmer weather has Trout going to deeper depths. Reports of them being caught anywhere from 10ft up to 25ft deep and everywhere in between. We stocked another 1200lbs this past Friday the 5th. Still PowerBait, Night Crawlers, and Kastmasters are doing well either from shore or fishing the shoreline by boat. If Trolling Broken Back Rapalas are still doing the trick! The Catfish bite is finally on, with many being caught, even by accident while Trout fishing!! Lots have been brought in the last week over the 15-20lb range!!!!! Bass have pretty much finished spawning but are still on the shoreline and great fishing! Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!
We released 3600lbs of Lightning Trout yesterday 4/24/17, on top of the 1200lbs of Rainbows on Friday 4/21!!! Trout are still shallow 5-7ft deep and relatively close to shore. Many boaters have been bait fishing the shore line in the back of the lake with great success. Shore fisherman have been doing good pretty much all around. Night Crawlers, Garlic PowerBait, and Power Eggs are doing good. When the sun is out shining Kastmasters work well. Bass are still on the shore and fishing has been great. Some of the Bass have already spawned while others are just getting on their beds. Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!

Lately fishing has been better in the morning for all anglers. Fish seem to be shallower in the morning hours (about 5ft) and slightly deeper (up to 10-15ft) by the afternoon. Either way all reports weather shallow or deeper are that Trout are close to shore. Bass are still on the shoreline. In the past week we have started to hear reports of Crappie being caught, still not hot fishing yet but its starting! We have another plant of Lightning Trout coming later this week. Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!
Luckily the water clarity remained unaffected by the storms last week, but with the temperature fluctuations from raining and sunny its been good for some and others a little tougher. Reports from fisherman this weekend were that the Trout are still somewhat shallow in the 10ft range and not far off shore. We have been planting every week this month and we got our first load of Lightning Trout on the 16th! Bass bite is still hot!! Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!
Warmer weather has taken the Trout to the 4-7ft range but still close to shore. Trolling and using lures like Kastmasters are continuing to get better and better as water clarity improves. The Carson Arm is still a good area for bait fishing. The dock has been producing well for night fisherman! For boaters other than trolling, bait fishing the shoreline in the less pressured areas in the back of the lake are paying off. The Bass bite is ON!! Bass are on the shore and some have even moved on to beds. They are hungry preparing for the coming spawn so they are biting on almost everything! We like to encourage catch and release while the Bass are on their beds so they can have the chance to repopulate the lake. There were some reports of Bluegill and Crappie this past weekend, which will continue to pick up as the weather warms. Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!
Sunny weather has brought on the Trout bite, his past week and weekend it was hot! Trout are still shallow and close to shore at the moment, but as the weather warms this week fishing in shady areas may pay off. Trolling is continuing to pick up, broken back Rapalas have been doing well. Lots of reports of Bass, fisherman state that they are on the shoreline. We heard from shore anglers saying that Bass were being caught on the corners of the Dam and along the Overflow Point. The water clarity is getting better every day now and visibility is a few feet at this point. Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!
Beautiful and calm weather is allowing the lake to finally start to clear up. We stocked 1,200lbs on Thursday March 2nd. Trolling and fishing with lures is starting to pick up again with better clarity, but still this last week white Power eggs and garlic PowerBait have been knocking them out. Even with sunny weather the Trout are shallow and close to shore. Bass fishing has been holding strong in the last few weeks with reports of about 10-25ft deep, which equals about 30ft off shore considering the depth of the shoreline. Brush Hogs and senkos are working well for anglers. We haven’t had many people up fishing for Crappie yet this year, but if you do, please give us your feedback. Good crappie fishing usually isn’t far behind once Bass fishing has picked up!! So go get some! Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!
What beautiful weather we are having, both fish and fisherman are loving it. Bass fishing has picked back up in the last couple of weeks and also lots of people catching Trout. The Spillway is still a hot area for shore fisherman. With the sunny weather the Dam should be a good area while fishing the debris line, Trout usually like to hang out in the shade underneath. As usual, PowerBait and Power Eggs are knocking them out when used shallow and close to shore. Bass fishing has been very good with large jigs, Brush Hogs, and swim baits in the 10-25′ range. Usually the main hot spot for Bass is up toward the back of the lake this time of year, but some are being caught closer by the Dock and RV Park point.
