Narciss boat ramp is bone dry, can’t even launch a stick. The main boat ramp water level is also very low and the floats holding up the dock are resting on mud. The concrete ramp is completely out of the water and only car-toppers, canoes and kayaks are recommended at the main boat ramp. Bass fishing continues to be good for those anglers who are able to get on the lake. However, with the smaller boats, some of the afternoon winds have made it difficult to move around on the water. The best time to fish is first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon as the shadow of the mountain is hitting the water. Soft plastic worms and grubs in dark greens, purple, blue and motor oil with sparkles in them rigged weedless are the way to fish for bass here. In the collection ditch fishing is fair to good for anglers willing to put the time in and move along it until they get into fish but watch for snakes. Fishing the collection ditch has been fair to good for trout using a variety of flies, spinners and lures. Flies that are working include prince nymphs, frostbite chironomids, black or olive wooly buggers, crystal buggers, PT’s, black callibaetis and mayfly emerger patterns. Dry flies should include Adams, PMD’s small elk hair caddis, damsel fly adults, hoppers, ants and small stimulators. The collection ditch is artificial lures only. With the cooler temperatures expect the bass bite to start dropping off and the trout bite to pick up.
