Latest fishing report

Anglers have been catching 16- to 22-inch rainbows and some smallmouth bass. Anglers have had success fishing from shore on the northeast side of the dam. Nightcrawlers tipped with an Atlas Mike's marshmallow have been the hot ticket. You can also try using Rooster Tail spinners, Kastmaster spoons or Luhr-Jensen Shyster spinners, and recover the lure at a medium to fast retrieval speed. For those who are trolling, try using popgear, Mack's Lures Wedding Rings or D&H Custom Lures spoons. Troll at 1.8 to 2.0 miles per hour with the lure suspended in 12 to 25 feet of water. The smallmouth bass fishing should start to pick up as temperatures warm. (Last update 05-15-18)
