Stocked a month ago and the fishing has still been good for shore fishing! the lake level is at 90% and holding steadily going down. boat launch is open and reports of good mack fishing for those who fish off the boat. macks can be found at depth of 60-90 feet and most concentrations of these fish can be found around china cove. macks are ranging from 5-8 pounds and have been hitting small spoons such as hum dingers and needlefish. kokanee fishing has been steady with the best spot being between china cove north to loch leven lodge. kokes are ranging from 10-12 inches and can be found suspended at depths of 45-65 feet. throw everything you have at the trout now, ie: powerbait, nightcrawlers, and salmon eggs and combinations of these baits, spoons and spinners of different varieties. by casting closer and then working your way out a little further one can detect what depth the trout are cruising and having patience is key to success now. get a guide for this lake and learn the ropes! guides listed on bottom of this page and all are highly recommended! this lake was planted the week of 5/21, 6/25, 7/9, and 8/20 with cutthroat trout and rainbow trout!
