Fishing has been slow with the majority of the catch being channel catfish.  The recent stocking event has improved the fishing for trout and should continue to be good on the dam end of the lake. The largemouth bass are showing up in solid numbers in the shallows. Spin fisherman have been tossing small spinners and spoons from shore for trout, and larger rapalas for the bass. Fly Fisherman have been trolling along the dam picking up trout periodically. The bass fishing along the shoreline and tules during low light periods can provide popper fisherman with some explosive action.
