The Marina put in 600lbs of Oregon Rainbows last week. Dan of Dan’s Guide Service chipped in a couple hundred pounds too. These fish are already coming in on stringers. Since the peak of run-off the lake has dropped about 6’. This results in more shoreline coming available to access and causes the fish to move about so they may not be holding where they were yesterday. The guys that troll Grant regularly are out early early when the light is grey down 7 or 8 colors for maybe two hours then the bite tends to shut off. Grant is unique in that the trolling lure types and patterns change during the season sometimes from day to day. Start with Speedy Shiner Cop Cars and Taz Devil Eruption, Black Thunder, and Tinkerbells but be prepared to switch colors and patterns. For a nice evening 3 hour tour give Dan’s Guide Service a call (661-478-0046) to hit the late bite, or for more information  call Ernie's Ski and Tackle shop at 760-648-7756 ask for Knot.
