The reservoir is still producing some nice fish these days up to 6 pounds or so. We're seeing some nice browns showing up as well. Bait fishing from boats has probably been the best way to go, but the shore fishing down near the dam is starting to get better as well. The fish are a bit scattered so if you're fishing from a boat you may need to move around a bit to keep up on the action. There was a 5 pound brown caught from the dam with a kastmaster a couple evenings ago so the lure action down there is definitely picking up. For bait go with inflated crawlers and power bait, for lures try kastmasters, rapalas and thomas bouyants.
