Fishing has been good!  Lots of fishing coming in trolling and a ton of bass activity.  Trout are moving off shore so most are catching trolling at about 25'.  If you are stuck on shore find a good drop off to cast over.
There's some late rains coming in this week so hopefully that keeps things lively.
On the weekends the lake has been very busy with boats and day use to the point where we had to shutdown Day Use last Saturday.  Folks want to get outside and who could blame them.  Avoid the heaviest crowds by coming Monday-Thursday.  Collins Lake is open with some operational changes that you can read in the PDF linked at the top of https://collinslake.com/ .  Thanks for being respectful and flexible, thanks helping us stay open!
