Latest fishing report
The reservoir is ice free. You can launch boats and fish from the shore at all public beachfronts. Anglers are catching big trout using whole chubs skewered with large bait hooks and fished on the bottom. The larger the bait, the larger the potential catch. The downside is that the bigger the bait, the lower the catch rate. Small pieces of chubs, worms and salmon eggs attract smaller trout, as well as chubs. Scofield is a good fishery for fishing mentors, parents and grandparents that want fast action for youngsters, who don't care if they are catching a trout or chub. On April 22, Jackson Harrison reported slow fishing. After fishing from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., he had caught one rainbow. Although he tried many lures and baits, he caught the trout using PowerBait.
