Fishing report

  • Rating: Hot
  • Conditions: The reservoir was recently stocked with rainbow trout. Even though the water level is low, fishing is hot for trout in the 7- to 10-inch range. One angler reports catching a fish with every cast using top water flies and spinners. Bass fishing has slowed down a little, but they are still biting on crankbaits. Don't forget to obtain your Walk-in Access authorization number before visiting this privately owned pond.
