Fishing has been fair to good here for both trout bass. Anglers need to use a small car-topper type boat or float tube to get past the weeds though they are starting to recede. For trout, worms or PowerBait are effective along with black and gold spinners. Fly rodders should be using damsel fly nymphs, prince nymphs, hares ears, pheasant tail (PT) nymphs and wooly buggers in olive or brown. Shore fishing is almost impossible due to the weeds. Anglers will have the best luck using float tubes or small boats casting from open water towards the weeds.
