  • Conditions: The following reports were provided by conservation officer TJ Robertson.

    Dark Canyon Lake: Fishing has ranged from slow to fair. Try using worms and salmon eggs. PowerBait has not been effective.

    Dons Lake: Fishing has been fair with nightcrawlers, salmon eggs, Kastmasters or Jakes lures. There is a lot of moss along the shoreline, which is making it challenging to cast and retrieve in some places.
