Tactics/Bait: Inflated Nightcrawlers and Powerbait had the best success this week. The top Powerbait colors were Salmon Peach and Yellow. Garlic in any color worked like it always does.

A number of fish were caught with Mice Tails and Pinched Crawlers. The top color for Mice Tails was orange. For the trolling crowd Tasmanian Devils or Needlefish continue to hook up quality fish. In the creek, Salmon Eggs and small spinners were the hot ticket. The top shore locations on the lake were the North Shore and Jetty area. Other locations to try: Inlet, South Shore, the Outlet and Hangman's Tree. Anglers on boats were having more luck when compared to the shore.

Here is a list of other baits/lures that can be productive:
Sierra Slammers, Tasmanian Devil, Green or brown Marvel Fly Lures, Trout Teasers, Panther Martin, NeedleFish, Rooster Tails, and Bite-On Fury Shad on Powerbait.

I would suggest using some type of added attractant. Pro-Cure, Bait-On, Lip Ripperz and Berkley all make excellent attractants, which are sold at the general store.
