Very little change here as fishing continues to be fair to good. Trout fishing is fair due to the warmer weather and water temperatures. The usual PowerBait and worms as well as small spinners are working for trout.  Fly rodders should be using chironomids, hares ears, PT nymphs, copper Johns, and black or olive wooly buggers.  For bass dark soft plastic baits with sparkles are working as are minnow type imitations.  The lake is full and with the warmer weather weeds are growing and shore fishing is getting more difficult.  Bass fishing is pretty good  along the weed edges using soft plastic grubs hooked weedless.   Anglers may want to consider bringing a float tube or cartopper boat.
