In honor of Veterans Day, we want to thank all of you who have served our country. We appreciate all that you have done and continue to do. You […]
The big news this week is that we stocked the lake with many big ones weighing 5 to 8 pounds. The Ambush at the Lake Derby and Morrison’s Bonus Weekend with the special tagged fish brought in many anglers. Big trout were caught, but unfortunately, none of the tagged fish were snagged. The late season […]

Many 3 ½ to 4 pounders were caught on inflated night crawlers, green garlic power bait, salmon peach power bait, rainbow power bait and […]
