The lake level is up and the fishing conditions are excellent. This week we dropped 800lbs of chunky Rainbows from Idaho to keep things spicy. Still a ton of fish spread around and while it isn't exactly limit-style fishing, very few boats are coming back empty handed. We are also getting some very nice fish in the 2-4lb range mixed in with the usual pan-sized fare. Shore fishing has been a bit slow, but boaters, kayakers and tubers are doing best.

The launch ramp is open for private boaters but be advised that parking is limited due to the road work so parking your boat trailer at the lake is a gamble.

Hot Spots: Rock Slide, Inlets.
Hot Lures: Sierra Slammer jigs & swimbaits, Rainbow Thomas Buoyants, 1/8oz Kastmasters
Best Fliest: Grasshoppers, Midges, Bead-Head Nymphs, Blank ants.
