Trout and kokanee fishing is good right now. 20 to 40 ft first thing in the morning for both, By 10 am kokanee bite dies. Trout move out to that 40 to 50 ft range and continue to bite throughout the day. Trolling Trinidad Tackle Jr Optimizers have been the lures of choice. For kokanee troll at speeds of 1.2 to 1.8 mph. For trout troll at speeds of 2.2 to 3.8 mph. Again trout biting all day.

Bass fishing is good. Catching a lot of fish in the 15 to 40 ft depth range. Topwater baits to throw a Vixen in bone color or a Whopper Plopper in bone color. Shakey head, dropshot and darter heads in browns, green pumpkins, reds and morning dawns working well. Baby bass color senkos neko rigged. Also throwing 3.8 Keitech swimbaits in sexy shad or rainbow shad on a 1/4 oz swimbait head catching a lot of fish. Hope this information helps you to be successful on your next fishing trip.
