by Mountain Hardware & Sports
(530) 587–4844

With a recent plant of trout here shore fishing here remains steady and will also help bring in some of the opportunistic mackinaw looking for an easy meal of planters. Shore anglers should use powerbait or worms off the bottom or try larger spoons to target the macks. Trolling remains spotty here with a few macks being caught in 40’-60’ of water and even a few browns showing up near the shoreline when a faster troll speed is used. Kokanee are being found mostly near china cove, however most of these fish are small which is typical for this lake. 57% Of Cap.

Lures: Kastmasters, Rapalas, Large spoons and spinners.

Bait: Floating Worms off bottom, Powerbait in chartreuse or salmon eggs

Trolling: dodgers and hoochies, wedding rings, lymans plugs, flatfish
