The algae bloom continues, though with the projected cooler temperatures, it should start clearing soon. The lake is a little over 40% of capacity and the state park boat ramp is still usable, but larger boats will want to use caution. Fishing has been slow for all species. Trollers are having the best luck, but it is still slow to fair for them as well. Fly fishermen are having some luck with black or olive wooly buggers, leeches, damsel fly nymphs and hares ears under an indicator. Gear anglers should be using minnow type imitations in fire tiger, black over white and blue over white. The usual PowerBait or worms are working best first thing in the morning or later in the evening for trout. Bass fishing has been slow and fishing for catfish has been fair for numbers good for size. Expect trout fishing to start picking up with the cooler water temperatures.
