 Renee and I ventured up two weeks ago and fished most of the day. We fished closer to the shore off the dam. We caught a couple, a small rainbow and cutthroat using half of  a night crawler or jigging small Kastmaster lures. We had many hits but could not hook them. I also tried a variety of colored spoons with no hits. We also tried salmon eggs with no hits. The ice was 10 to 12 inches thick with only 2 inches of snow on the lake. There were many anglers on the lake with fair success as we had.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question or a report in our local fishing area, call the Naw line at 775-267-9722. If you have a photo of your catch, send it to Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
