Bass fishing for keeper sized bass is good. With water levels up the bass are spread out more so anglers need to move until they find them. Dark plastic four to six inch grubs with sparkles in them seem to be the presentation of choice. Colors include blue, dark red, dark green, purple and motor oil. Fishing in the ditch for trout is fair. Fly rodders should try the usual assortment of nymphs under an indicator as well as wooly, seal and crystal buggers. Scuds, midges, and small Blue Winged Olives are all worth a try. Of course the usual small hares ears, PT’s, copper Johns and buggers are all staples in the ditch. Spin fishermen should try small minnow imitators and gold spinners. The collection ditch is artificial lures and flies only and no wading is allowed. Boats can still be easily launched at both the main boat ramp and at Narciss as the water level in the south marsh is good. The road was graded a couple of weeks ago, but is already washboarded.
