Latest fishing report

Fishing is fair. The water levels are continuing to rise and hazard buoys in the water for boaters. Please remember that hazards still exist so exhibit caution when launching. Anglers report catching 18- to 22-inch walleye, 11- to 14-inch rainbow trout, and 14- to 16-inch carp. No recent report of anglers catching northern pike. The majority of northern pike have spawned or are nearing the end of the spawn, and are feeding in the shallows. For northern pike, we recommend fishing in shallow areas of the reservoir with vegetation or structure. Try using 1/2 to 3/4-ounce spinner baits with a single blade and big skirt such as Blue Fox Foxtail Super Vibrax, Panther Martin Muskie Marabuck, Mepps Dressed Agila or Mepps Dressed Black Fury lures. If bait fishing for pike, walleye or channel catfish, try using a dead red side shiner, smelt, Utah chub or carp meat fished off the bottom using a slip rig sinker, or suspended 25- to 30-inches below a bobber in shallower water. For walleye, try using Rapala Shad Rap lures, Rapala Husky Jerk lures, or Walleye Nation Shaky Shad. For rainbow trout, try using 1/4 or 1/6-ounce gold Jakes Spin-A-Lures, 1/4-ounce silver Zona Z Ray Lure or 1/4-ounce hammered gold or chrome Acme Kastmasters. Also, try using yellow or garlic Powerbait fished 15- to 20-inches off the bottom using a basic fixed rig sinker, or using a bit of nightcrawler with a kernel of corn fished 24- to 36-inches under a bobber.
