The Fishing Report

Fishing Report- Week of 5/30/16 Posted

Trout fishing is still holding strong with most being caught in the 25ft depth. Trout have moved out of the coves with warming temperatures so fish the main body of the lake where it is deeper and cooler. Red worms and Crappie Jigs are bringing in many large Crappie and Bluegill. We have seen lots of big bass brought in too with some in our aquariums, with plastics and large jigs working well.

Fishing Report- Week of 5/15/16 Posted

We have our last load of 2400lbs of Rainbow Trout coming this week, unfortunately we got a last minute email stating that we will not be receiving anymore lightning trout this season. Trout are still biting strong on power bait, mice tails, and Kastmasters. A group of gentlemen that always come and knock them out say to use a small ball of power bait on a 5′ leader and cast about 25′ out and let it sink, cant go wrong. The catfish will soon be hot with many starting to be brought in over 16lbs! Crappie and Blue gill are being caught off the dock and in the coves. Many Bass fisherman are coming out and doing well with plastics and jigs. Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!

Fishing Report- Week of 05/01/16 Posted

With all the warm weather lately the trout are staying cool during the day at about 10-20ft deep, making the morning and evening bites the best when cooler.  Power Bait and Kastmasters seem to be what is working the best at this time for fisherman.  But with the warmer weather the bite is on for Bluegill, Crappie, and Catfish!  A 16+lb catfish was caught while trolling for trout last week.  Reports have been made that the Bass are now on their beds preparing to spawn.  Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!

Fishing Report- Week of 4/3/16 Posted

The lake is full and Water clarity is good! Beautiful time to go fishing with all this nice weather. The Crappie bite is back on with reports of them being caught from the big dock and in the Mt. Springs area.  The Trout are within the top 10ft of water and still relatively close to shore.  Most reports of fish caught from shore are on green and rainbow Power Bait, Night Crawlers, and Mice Tails.  Boaters have been trolling the outer edges of the lake with Spinners and the go to lure the Broken Back Fire Tiger Rapala.  Boaters are having great success in the Jackson Creek area and bait fishing the coves in the back of the lake.  The Bass are feeding heavily right now preparing for their spawn so we please request that catch and release is practiced with these fish right now so they can have a chance to reproduce. Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!
