The lake level is at 80% and climbing slowly. Boat launch is open and reports of good Mack fishing for those who fish off the boat. Macks can be found at depth of 80-90 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. For the bank fisherman, there was a plant of sub-catchable size Pilot Peak Cutthroats put into the lake last week. 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 4/24 with Cutthroat trout.
