Topaz Lake Fish Report
I talked with fellow angler and long time friend Dan Maldonado. He fished a couple weeks ago with his wife and had good success on the California side with various colors of powerbait. Dan told me the rainbows were 14 to 19 inches and very clean and healthy. If you decide to do some trolling, I would get out early and be off the lake by noon or sooner. This due to the amount of water and jet skiers.

Caples Lake Fish Report
The lake level is up and the fishing has been slow. Renee and I trolled a couple weeks ago for 4.5 hours with not a single hit. We used Rapalas to needlefish lures, I jigged a kastmaster while Renee tried powerbait. I saw a few anglers fishing at Woods creek and saw no action. We spoke to many boaters as they passed by, not a one had any success. A few anglers have reported in fishing from the shore by the dam. They were using salmon eggs or inflated night crawlers and caught a couple small rainbows. For more information stop by the Caples Lake Resort.
