Devin & Robert of Camptonville brought in a double limit dragging Rat-L-Traps by the dam. While PowerBait has lost a bit of steam we are still seeing some folks outperforming including Thor Olson and Lucas Kelly who caught 9 trout shore fishing along the north channel (Hidden Spruce Trail) using PowerBait and worms.
