The lake isn’t quite full but it’s coming up fast and at a perfect level for fishing and kayaking, which for mid-June is exceptional. There are lots of fish in the lake, but some days the trout are playing hard to get and others it’s wide open. We recommend changing it up until you find the color or scent that the fish want to eat. Lure anglers were reporting lots of follows but when you find the right color those follows turn into strikes. The inlets, Rockslide and the entire west shore are loaded with fish. Minijigs, streamers and worms have been best. Lots of holdover fish in the 1.5 – 2lb range with the biggest of the week at just under 4lbs.

The launch ramp is now open for private boaters but be advised that the road work is in full swing and parking may be limited.

Hot Lures: Sierra Slammer and Ultralightheavyweight jigs, Thomas Buoyants.

Best Fliest: Woolly buggers and other streamers. Blank Ants.

Best Baits: Fly-lined nightcrawlers, garlic Powerbait.
