Recreation traffic is heavy, but anglers have been quite successful catching 16-inch kokanee, 15-inch rainbows and 16- to 18-inch smallmouth bass. For kokanee, try trolling at 1.3-1.5 mph with the lure suspended in 35 to 50 feet of water in front of the main boat ramp or adjacent to the dam. Try using orange or light pink squids with an orange/silver streak dodger tipped with pink Berkley Gulp! Maggots. For rainbows, try trolling at 1.5 mph with the lure suspended in 10 to 20 feet of water and use pink/silver, orange/silver, blue/silver or gold D&H Custom Lures spoons. (Last update 08-09-18)
