Other notable catches this week:

Greg Yudt of El Sugundo, CA landed a nice 5 pound 8 ounce Rainbow while jigging a White Mice Tail. Greg was fishing at the South Shore.

Tactics/Bait: Inflated Nightcrawlers was the top bait this week. Some of the top lures were Thomas Buoyants, Kastmaster and Mice Tails. The top colors for the lure/jigs were red, white and pink. The top Powerbait color was Rainbow. The "Catch of the Week" was caught at the North Shore. Other locations to try would be the South Shore, Inlet, Jetty/Outlet Area and Hangman's Tree.

Here is a list of other baits/lures that can be productive:
Sierra Slammers, Tasmanian Devil, green or brown Marvel Flies , 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, Bite-On, Lip Ripperz and Berkley all make excellent attractants, which are sold at the general store.

Here is a list of recommended flies:
Dry Flies: Adams, Female Adams, Cutter's Caddis, Elk Hair Caddis, Stimulators, Black/Red Ants, Sierra Bright Dot, Royal Coachman and Hoppers.

Streamers: Wooly Bugger (black, brown, olive, or green), Mutuka (black, brown, olive, or green), Hornberg, and Muddler Minnows.
