Mike at The Resort says the Cutthroat fishing is picking up as they come in near shore this time of year. One customer got a couple nice ones using black woolly buggers along the south shore. Cutthroat fishing in June Lake had improved year by year throughout the season as the population grows. He also proudly showed me their brand new Tracker pontoon boat as a new addition to “The Fleet”. She’s a ‘beaut Mike!

Abby reports that Mother’s Day was a great day of fishing on the lake. All the boats out pretty much limited hitting the shallower north and south shores. Best baits have been Mice Tails and Garlic Power Eggs. Those trolling lures have been doing well near the surface. This all goes back to targeting those warmer shallower spots. She also pointed out their newly outfitted 16’ boats with Bimini tops. I don’t know about you but I’m a big fan of shade. These are the first ones in the neighborhood and may start a trend.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
