The lake level is steady. The fishing has been good for small rainbows. Anglers have been using yellow or green powerbait by the dam. Small kastmasters or spinners have been productive. The campground area is closed for the 2022 season. Reminder, the lake has a blue green algae warning. Do not allow pets to drink from the lake and if you keep your catch. Clean them there and rinse them in fresh water at home. Right now the level is a warning yellow stage.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
