The Trout action still seems to be the big action on the lake. You can't go wrong, if the Kokanee fishing is slow the Trout have no problems biting the Kokanee set ups. People are weighing in big numbers of healthy fat Trout all aggressively taking the pink or purple hoochies behind a Rocky Mountain dodger the same setup used for Kokanee. Ernie Leveras did just that at 60 feet deep trolling at the 49 Bridge was able to boat 6 beautiful Trout in the morning. Our local guide Gary Burns said he is rigging his gear with Kokanee setups Apex in watermelon or silver and blue with or without a dodger topped off with with his garlic corn at 60 feet deep trolling at 1.5mph. And pulling in big numbers on the Trout.

Fishing these post pawn Bass in the morning throwing Whopper Ploppers is the ticket and using drop-shot rigs also are producing big numbers of bucket mouths. Customers of the Glory Hole Sports reported catching and releasing 30 largemouth bass in just an afternoon outing.

Glory Hole Sports customer hit the water on July 26 and weighed in 2 nice Largmouth Bass he caught floating minnows in 12 feet of water off the shoreline fishing wacky rig setup.


You can can call the lake full with both docks available in the water. The die hard anglers are still putting trout on the stringer. In order to find them you are going to fish around 20-28 feet deep in the main lake. It looks like the trout plants are over until it starts to cool down in October. The bait of choice is Power Bait and mini night crawlers. Some people are trolling minnow imitation lures, spoons, or worms. The bass are in post spawn habits, most bass fishermen are using a variety of plastics, Senkos and drop-shot being at the top of the list. Crappie and Bluegill are good for shore fishing, find some brush or wood structure or put some time in at the docks and sink a minnow or crappie jig. Don't forget to give the Catfish a try.


The lake is full and beautiful just be careful up river of all the floating wood debris.Trout and Kokanee are still being caught. Set your downrigggers at about 30-40 feet deep. The bait most people mention is pink and watermelon hoochies behind a small dodger. The bank fishermen are doing well next to the stony Creek spillway, rainbow point using power bait.


The Trout fishing has slowed some as the hot weather picks up. You can still find a limit of Bass or Bluegill if you put in the time. Throw top water lures like the Whopper Ploppers being my favorite first thing in the morning then pull out your drop-shot rod in the afternoon.

The water is warm and has dropped about 4-6 feet in the last month. The Stripers are pushing the shad to the surface for some really fun topwater action. It's a morning and late afternoon bite. Most boats are using white Whopper Ploppers or shad colored fluke's on the surface. On a good day you can put 8-10 fish in the boat, just fishing a couple of hours before dark.

The boats trolling are in front of the boat ramp area and using Alabama rig or frozen shad. The Black Bass are in the post spawn mode top water action works in the morning and evening but you need to pull out the senko rod and fish deep in the afternoon or find those islands tops with quick access to deep water.
