How high is the water Mama? It’s 60% full and rising!!!  Only 22 more feet to go before the water is going over the spillway…..

Last week’s 1800 lb. fish plant came at a very appropriate time, when the lake had 3 ft. of visibility and the weather was in the mid 70’s.  Lots of people took to the water or shoreline with their fishing poles and hooked some awesome fish–mostly Trout.

Today I was told that lots of people are limiting out along the shoreline down by the dam using worms or PowerBait.  After the recent rains the visibility is closer to one to one and half feet and will improve daily.

Next week we will receive another awesome load of trout which includes some trophy sized fish as well.  The plant will be another 1,800 lbs. and 3/4 of the load are catchables and 1/4 are big trophies!!
