Largemouth Bass
Greg L. of San Francisco caught this beautiful largemouth bass at Coots Landing. He was using a Rat L Trap.

The water temperature is in the mid-60s and water clarity is about four feet. Please follow our Facebook page,, for weekly updates on fishing conditions.

All of our boats are half off Wednesday, including Patio Boats!

We have had a few reports of catfish caught reported to the marina. If you would like to report your catches, please come to the marina, and we will take your picture!

Please practice catch and release for bass as they are not stocked into the lake and their population depends on you!
