- Rating: Good
- Conditions: Anglers report fair to good fishing. For trout, try using worms, mealworms, salmon eggs or artificial baits. You should also try flies, brightly colored spoons, crayfish-colored jigs and fish-colored crankbaits. When you're fishing the bottom, use a marshmallow or floating bait to float your bait roughly 18–24 inches from the bottom. This will keep your worm above the mud and weeds and make it easier for the fish to find. Spirit was stocked with catchable-sized tiger trout last summer. Tamarak and Jessen were also stocked with tiger trout. Two- to three-inch fingerlings were flown into these upper lakes in 2013, so they should now be reaching catchable sizes.
