With surface water temperatures in the mid-60’s, fishing for trout is fair and fair to good for bass. Soft plastic baits in Junebug, green pumpkin and light blue/bluegill sparkly colors have been working for bass.  For the bait anglers, worms seem to be working better than PowerBait for trout.  Spin fishermen should be using blue or green spinners with silver blades.  Fly rodders were having good luck with damselfly nymph and dry patterns along the weed bed edges in the morning.  Nymphs include blue copper Johns, hares ears, PT’s and of course damselfly nymphs. With the big midge hatch bring the chironomid patterns. The boat ramp is out of the water and is unusable.
