Bass fishing has been excellent and many bass in the 4-6 pound range are being caught according to those at the lake.
According to lake officials, monster trout continue to be stocked every week. "Trout fishing has been awesome with five-fish limits the ‘norm’ and plenty of BIG trout coming to the scales every day," said Rick Menodoza, co-owner of Rip 'n Lips, the company that rents fishing equipment, boats and more at the lake. "Power Bait, Night Crawlers, Trout Worms / Tails and Crank Baits are all producing trout strikes. Fly fishermen continue to catch big numbers of trout on the bead head midges."
