FISHING REPORT
Updated - 5/15/22

Current Conditions: Lake received a trout plant again this week and water levels are stable, clear and in good condition


Fishing-Fair to Good: The Fly Shop in Redding reports that fishing has been slower than it usually is in May but with most of the cold weather behind us bugs should be getting real active in the coming weeks. Balanced Leeches, Crystal Buggers, these are go-to's on this lake.  Zebra Nymphs in brown and black, sizes #16 - 20, stripped or under an indicator are good strategies.
