Very little change here as fishing has been slow to fair for trout, slow for bass and wipers, and fair for catfish. There is some algae growth going on and the water is turbid, though some areas of the lake have less than others. There are some carryover trout in the lake from stocking a few years ago that are averaging around 23 inches and last fall’s stocked fish are averaging around 15 inches. Fly fishermen are having the best luck with black or olive wooly buggers, leeches, damsel fly nymphs and hares ears. Gear anglers are having success with minnow type imitations in fire tiger, black over white and blue over white. Trout are starting to move into deeper water with surface water temperatures in the low 70’s. Shore anglers should look for shorelines that drop off quickly so they can reach deeper water. Several anglers report good success for catfish ranging in size from five to ten pounds. Anglers may now keep one black bass, 15 inches or longer.
