Electric Lake

Fishing report

  • Rating: Fair
  • Conditions: On Aug. 21–22, Danielle Mills and her family spent two days trolling the lake. During their visit, they caught one trout on a Jakes lure and one on a rainbow trout-imitating spoon. On Aug. 20, Tom Ogden fly fished Electric Lake from a tube with fast-sinking line and size 6–8 beadhead soft-hackle flies. He caught six cutthroats up to 16 inches long and 18 tigers up to 17 inches long. Most of the tigers were in the 11- to 12-inch range. Although kokanee salmon are harder to catch, Tyrel Mills used leaded line, pop gear and kokanee killers to hook salmon up to 14 inches long.
