Cave Lake is sitting approximately 15 feet below normal water levels.  Fishing has been consistent throughout the year with eight to 10 inch Rainbow Trout being caught.  One exceedingly large Brown Trout over 20 pounds was caught recently, indicating that there are still quality fish left in the lake. There is no ice on the lake with water temperatures in the upper 30’s to low 40’s. Cave Lake received 3,196 Rainbow Trout in April. Stocking conditions did not allow for any additional trout to be stocked in 2020.The usual small nymphs and crystal buggers are working for trout, with beadhead pheasant tail nymphs being very effective.  For bait anglers, fishing a worm about four feet below a bobber or using powerbait floated off the bottom with a slip sinker seems to be the best bets. The float tube launching area is closed and anglers should fish at the north end of the lake near the dam and main boat launch area.
