Latest fishing report
The reservoir thawed this week and is now entirely ice-free. Boats may be launched and shoreline fishing is available along all public beach fronts. The biggest trout continue to be caught with whole chubs skewered with large hooks and fished off the bottom. The larger the bait, the larger the potential catch. However, large baits keep smaller fish off the line and minimize the catch rate. Parents and grandparents, who are only interested in a high catch rate for younger children, should stay with worms, salmon eggs and PowerBait to keep the kids busy reeling in both chubs and small cutthroat trout that range from 9 to 13 inches and weigh from a quarter to half a pound.
