Fishing Report- Week of 2/20/17

Its looking better out here, we have the debris wrangled into the corner of the dam so its not drifting out in the lake. The launch ramp is also clear of debris. Water clarity hasn’t changed much with the amount of rain we continue to receive and is still murky. The spillway is still spilling and continues to be a top spot for shore fisherman. The Carson arm, RV Park cove and the Overflow camping point are good areas from shore as well. Still, most of fisherman’s feedback is white Power Eggs, Night Crawlers, and garlic PowerBait. Trout are very shallow in the top few feet of water and still close to shore. Trolling is slow with the water conditions, but bait fishing the shoreline and coves that are only accessible by boat seems to be the way to go. We continue to hear reports that Bass fishing is good towards the back of the lake. The points at mouth of Jackson creek are a popular spot and produces well. Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!
