Fishing, this past two weeks, has been a bit on the slow side we saw stringers coming out, but you were working for your dinner. Fishing the inlets with NightCrawlers or PowerBait had some fish nibbling the bait. Trolling flashers and a worm or a lure with a spot of red on them (ie Red and Gold Thomas Buoyant) or a WoolyBugger had a few fish trailing behind some boats. Those anglers not wanting to work very hard were seen drifting slowly across the lake using NightCrawlers. Those fishing from shore had luck with Salmon Eggs and NightCrawlers.

Lo got his haircut a week ago and he sure is enjoying the "LION-DOG" attention. He's so much cooler and happier. Some other entertaining news two climbers appeared to be stuck (it was actually their rope) on Cardinal Pinnacle -that's the big rock outcropping above Cardinal Village in Aspendell that at times looks like a face what with the different shadows on the rocks. They were still climbing down Sunday evening at 8:45pm in the dark not my kind of fun.

It's been a bit on the cool side with hit and miss showers and a few thunder-bumpers thrown in and can't forget the hail. Heard reports of snow at North Lake Friday Don't you just love the Sierras??? - Highs in the mid 60s with the low 40s for lows. Not much of any wind except when the thunder-boomers go through. Howard is still talking showers with a slight chance of sunshine through Friday then, so check out his report at @ It was supposed to be sunny today with a chance of showers pretty much showers and hail saw the sun for a couple of minutes at mid-morning. ALWAYS PACK A JACKET AND LONG PANTS!

The North Lake is finally OPENED. The skeeters have lightened up this week (or maybe they're just re-grouping) with the cooler temps, still remember the bug juice and COMMIT TO MEMORY, IF YOU PUT ON BUG JUICE, SUN SCREEN OR FOO FOO JUICE, WASH YOUR HANDS! THEN RUB THEM IN WORM GOO, TROUT ATTRACTANT OR POWERBAIT - GET THE OTHER SCENT OFF!

Also, don't forget your sunscreen and dark glasses, the glare on the water is soooo bright, they just might blind your eyeballs. PONCHOS or COATS MAY ALSO BE NEEDED - YOU NEVER KNOW!


You all have a great week and if the stress gets too great, you all know where to come to get some relief! But, remember you don't need to be stressed to come. WE JUST WANT TO SEE YOU SOON!

Lake rising, docks moving, Pontoon boat in sounds like the spring snow run-off is off to a GREAT start. With the lake coming up a foot to a foot and a half a day, it looks like we may be full by mid-July barring any areas down south needing water. Fishing was awesome until Sunday. The fish were hitting just about anything you, your family and friends could throw at them. And talking about family and friend, there sure...... Read More

Saturday 7:00am to 7:00pm Sunday 7:00am to 6:00pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday 8:00am to 6:00pm CLOSED WEDNESDAYS Not much of a fishing report, cuz there wasn't much fishing. With only small patches of open water showing around shore and that mostly in shallow waters, fishing for those anglers that braved the cold and black-ice covered roads was a bit on the slow side. The Dingleberry Inlet has opened up to a fairly good size for those hearty bunch of "fishin' fools". A...... Read More
