Anglers report fair to good fishing for both rainbow and tiger trout on small black or olive crystal or wooly buggers as well as black leeches. Chironomids, pheasant tail nymphs, gold ribbed hare’s ears and soft hackles under an indicator or dry fly should also work.  Dry flies are also productive.  Popular patterns include parachute Adams, black gnats, yellow stimulators and grasshoppers.  Spin fishermen should try small gold or silver spinners. Bait anglers should have some luck with worms about five feet under a bobber or PowerBait fished off the bottom.  The lake level is dropping due to irrigation and there is plenty of shoreline for fishing.  The backside of the lake along the rock walls and submerged boulders seems to be the best area for catching fish.
