Latest fishing report

Fishing has been slow. There is little to no ice formation at this time, but please keep in mind that conditions can change quickly. Traditional methods work best. Try using PowerBait or a nightcrawler suspended below a bobber or off the bottom using a slip rig sinker in about 10 to 12 feet. You can also try using metallic spoons, or spinners to target trout. Remember to retrieve slowly. (Last update 01-03-19)
