Fishing Report

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.

I want to thank everyone that attended the May Trout Classic and more importantly our wonderful sponsors. Special thanks to my friends at Bass Pro shops. Jason Hall the tournament director had his hands full during the weigh-in times as everyone brought in fish to be weighed. We ended up with a very impressive board with all fish over 5lbs.

This may be the easiest report I have ever put together because the fishing is that good and it really doesn’t matter what I say,YOU WILL CATCH FISH. Currently Rapala and Needlefish are working well on the troll. The folks using the drift method have been very successful as well. Dough bait from the shoreline is always a good go-to this time of the year. The Lake is packaged full of beautiful trout right now and we are seeing some of the best fishing in a decade. The water is mixed so there is no honey hole at the present time however the fish are moving to the west as the water warms. So get out and try your luck and catch something for the grill.

Bass fishing is good along the structure; we have seen a lot of fish in the three pound range.

The carp have not shown their face as of yet but we hope to see sprinklings of uglys soon as the granddaddy tournament of them all is rapidly approaching. Get your registration in soon as we have blown this baby up this year to be the best ever.
