South Lake is still low & the fishing is mixed

Pretty much the same story as last week, the lake is still low, and fishing is decent for most, great for a few, and poor for some.

Boaters are still having the best luck with bait with salmon eggs & rainbow garlic powerbait producing best. Still not much love for the trollers or the lure tossers but they are picking off a few here and there.

Best fishing was at the Rock Slide, Boiler Cove and the Inlet again this week.

No trolling reports this week.

The lake level actually dropped a bit this week, much to our surprise and disappointment - great weather, big runoff month, no rise - bummer. Stay tuned for updates as we hope to meet with SCE next week to get a clearer picture of when the water will rise and how far.

Private boaters are out of luck in 2013. Canoers and Kayakers welcome - just be prepared to carry your boat down and avoid parking on the launch ramp as South Lake Landing still needs access to the ramp for boat operations.

South Lake Landing will continue to operate on a limited schedule, open Friday, Saturday & Sundays from 7am to 5pm for a few more weeks. Folks wishing to rent a boat Monday through Thursday should check in at the Parchers Resort office anytime after 8am. Weekday boat rentals are available weather permitting.
