We had a few afternoon thunderstorms again this week, but those didn’t stop the fish from biting.  We stocked the lake this week with Oregon rainbows and the county has also stocked the lake with sizable trout.  These whoppers are biting!

With the warmer weather the trout are going deeper to cooler water.  Anglers are finding the bite is happening early in the morning and in the early evening.  Try to find where the deep holes are located because the water will be cooler there. Remember when trolling to go down deep as well.

The Inlet has been a good area to try.  It is where the fish are hanging out to snap up incoming food and hopefully, your bait. It is an easy walk to the back of the lake and a beautiful boat ride.

Garlic power bait and night crawlers still seem to produce the most catches.  Trolling a Thomas Buoyant or a Marvel Fly (fly with a bubble) have done well.

The weather this coming week looks to be mostly sunny with the day time temps in the low 80’s/high 70’s.  Night time temps should be in the mid 40’s.  It should be fine for all outdoor activities.

Great catches this week include:

  • Nathan and his granddad, Bob, from Hesperia, CA braved the rain storm and brought in a beefy trout weighing 6 ¼ lbs. They used a night crawler at the Inlet.
  • Liam and his dad hiked up Convict Creek and pulled in a beauty with a night crawler.
  • Andrea from San Jacinto, CA caught a 3 ½ lbs. lunker on South Shore using yellow power bait.
  • Greg from Newbury Park, CA was using garlic power bait at the Inlet and up hooked up a 3 ¼ lbs. trout.
  • Isabella from Montclair caught a 3 ¾ with a marshmallow!


Don’t forget you can get your fishing license, bait and tackle, snacks and coffee in the General Store before you head out to the lake. It is open from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM daily.

The Aspen Grill is cooking up delicious breakfast burritos and lunch sandwiches, fish tacos, and salads every day from 7:00 AM to 2:30 PM.

Please stop in, we love to see all of you.
