Latest fishing report
Fishing has moved from summer to fall patterns with increased trout activity and slower bass fishing. For trout, try trolling crankbaits, spoons, spinners or worms from the boat. Shore anglers can also expect to find success casting or fishing suspended trout baits including worms and PowerBait. Bass have slowed down with the cooler temperatures, but can still be caught if you are patient; bass anglers should focus on rocky structures in 20–30 foot depths and slowly fish jigs or crawfish patterns to hook sluggish fish. Bluegill are also catchable if you can locate schools; once located try vertically jigging with small worm tipped jigs. (Last updated 10-17-2016)
