YUM crawbugs or smoke.silver flake grubs are what i do best with, i use clear 6lb test line, water is crystal clear and you will find they are a bit pickier than in the sj river, atleast thats been my experience with them

I've always caught a few trolling for salmon with an orange jointed rapala.

Try top water in the early morning or spinerbaits tubes(white specled)are good as the day goes on. There is alot of bass in that lake any of the coves have fish. I have caght alot of bass there mostly average around the 2 pound mark. They should still be on there nest? if so you will have no problem catching fish.
Good Luck G.J.

yup--what they said--i used to fish smallies there a lot--there are dandies in there--but like was already mentioned--very clear water and they can be picky--one time i remember late in the evening the lake was alive with fish eating some kind of floating insect--we watched for em to rise then hit the circle with a floating lure and smack--we got about 20 nice ones in the last 30 min before dark while i cursed that i didn't have my fly rod--there is one in the boat with a floating fly rigged all the time now

A guy I work with was out yesterday in the rain - they caught some dandies - he said some of them are on beds now, so fish coves and bays, and you'll probably want to fish on bottom. They had their best luck on tubes in crawdad color and a two toned one - I think it was white/watermelon or something like that. You'll probably catch lots of smaller ones on faster baits, but the bigger spawners will more than likely come on tubes or other bottom baits. Good luck!

Sounds like everybody has their favorite. I like black salamander, black grub, black/chart berkley finesse worm. Flyfish with a Muddler. Topwater with a PopR or torpedo. I think anything will work at times. But be mindful of the bottom as the lake is full of bars that stretch into the lake farther than you would guess.

Hello guys! are there any boeys or markers showing where the channels are, thanks RON
No. Keep one eye on the fishfinder at all times. On windy sunny days you can see the shallow bars quite easily, but on cloudy days you have to be really careful. I've fished there a lot over the last 15 years and I still occasionally get surprised. If you've got a GPS - start plotting your trails and you won't have to worry about it again - at least in those areas.
