The objective of our fishing report is to provide our lake users with up-to-date information and to help our anglers on what’s working where and when. It is important for everyone to remember that fish have minds of their own and everyday is not going to be the same as the last, but being flexible is vital to consistently catching not just consistently fishing. It is also important to remember that the person providing this information is a fisherman himself and sizes and weights vary slightly from the truth depending on how many times the story has been told.

Do you feel a tingle in your throat? A slight cough coming on? The only cure for this is a sick day on the water with a little cow bell. This bite cannot continue to be this good for much longer. The bite took a slight hiatus but that didn’t last long. The rainbows are on fire and the quality is off the charts. Water clarity is 15 plus FEET, which is as good as it gets, but this can alert the preseasoned trout to your oversized offering. Gear down on the line weight and brighten up the colors to get in on this ridiculous bite. Water temps are pushing to create a new record for this time of year with enough oxygen to put in a bottle everywhere. Trollers are doing great on the typical offerings-a couple colors deep with a gold backed needle fish or the fire tiger Rapala. Rock squatters are finding great action on dough baits of all kinds of bright colors all along the bank. I am thinking this is a prime time to make a balloon out of a crawler for that extra bit of magic to spank the big monkey. We did stock a few billion littler guys and gals, so if you don’t want to be embarrassed at the scales just grab the hook with pliers and flip them back into the water without molesting them and they can get educated and grow up to make you proud. I also can tell you a little secret since only two of you read this report, we are dropping a fish bomb right before the $50K tournament in June. So if you haven’t signed your John Handcock on the pretty entry form, you may want to let the bats out of your wallet and get in on the spring bonanza.
Bass fishing is as good as I have seen it for some time, with close to and/or record setting size fish showing up small and large trap models. I have to apologize to some who we couldn’t produce the correct lake records for, we have hunted those records down and are placing them on this site as we speak. My bad, I was asleep at the wheel. So now go break a record-I dare you.
Crappie have finally shown up after quite a few years of zero. Pretty good slabs are appearing around the rocky areas on mini jigs. White and pink was the ticket or so I have been told.
Catfish are sleeping
Carp spawning has gone off for a week plus with massive amounts being taken out of the lake. Please dispose of these correctly because you guys and gals already stink from fish funk, so let’s try to keep our names out of the mud. We will take them here Monday through Friday before 2pm week days or put them to good use.
