As we roll into summer fishing on the lake remains good. Water temps are up compared to last year, with readings at 63 degrees in the west end, 64 degrees in the middle and 66 in the east. Clarity is also higher than normal with visibility down to 10 feet. Oxygen levels for trout are adequate down to 47 feet at the dam and bump up tp 30 feet from the west ramp to Juniper Pt. For trout anglers fishing close to shore in the west end using PowerBait and nightcrawlers suspended from a slip bobber rigged at 20 feet is producing nice trout. Trollers working Rapalas on the surface and Dick Nite spoons and Thomas Buoyants at 3 to 3 1/2 colors down from Windy Pt. and west are getting a good mix of hefty holdovers and fresh planters.
Crappie and Bluegill are showing well along docks, weed beds and rocks. Mini-jigs or a worm hung off a clip on bobber will get the job done. Bass are a little slow as they come out of spawn. Look for the catfish to start hitting the stink baits in the days to come. Bow anglers are starting to whack the carp as they hit the shallows to spawn.
