Great morning shore fishing here for spin-fisherman and fly anglers wading the flats sight fishing. Come mid-day the lake warms up and fish dive into deeper water making it best for trollers or spin/flycasters on a float tube or boat. Trolling needlefish worms with a flasher or small rapalas has been working well for spin-fisherman and stripping leech patterns or small streamers for flycasters has been best.


Lures: Needlefish, worms/flashers, apex, rapalas, spinners.
Flies: Jay Fair’s wiggle tails, Wolly Buggers, Callibaetis dries and Caddis.
