Not a lot of change here. The water level has dropped a bit due to evaporation but anglers from float tubes report good fishing for trout with some of the larger fish that were stocked earlier in the spring being caught. The weeds are dying back and the algae has cleared. Expect fishing to continue to improve as the water temperatures fall. The usual PowerBait or worms should work for bait anglers and small spinners are the ticket for spin fishermen. Fly rodders are having luck with dark colored buggers, leeches, hares ears and nymphs with peacock herl. Expect the same techniques and presentations that work at South Fork, to work here as well. Anglers are being asked to return any bass or blue gill they catch to help re-build those populations in the lake.
