Very little change here as fishing has been good for anglers catching wipers, trout and black bass. Water temperatures are climbing, so fish for trout early in the morning or fish deeper during the day. Flows coming into the lake have dropped quite a bit and the south end of the lake is starting to clear up a bit. The south end of the lake is seeing a lot of weed growth. PowerBait seems to be working better than worms for trout. Fly rodders are having success with damsel fly nymphs fished along the edges of weed beds and in the backs of the coves. Of course the usual wooly buggers, seal buggers and leech patterns as well as the more common nymphs are all effective. Wipers being caught along the no wake buoy line at the south end of the lake using black over silver and black over white crank baits, fire tiger minnow imitations and chartreuse crystal buggers and Clouser minnows. Good places to fish for trout include the north end of Jet Ski Beach, the last cove before the dam on the northeast side, the main boat ramp cove and from a boat or float tube at the south end of the lake. Trout will start moving into deeper water with the warmer surface water temperatures. The lake was stocked with 15,000 rainbows last week bringing the total stocked this spring to 63,000 fish. Black bass must be released until July 1.
