Fishing for trout should start picking back up with the decreasing reservoir temperatures. Trout anglers will want to try trolling, and a good bet will be a wedding ring/bait combination. One angler reported a flasher tipped with a worm produced good results during mid-day hours. Fishing with bait from shore in the upper reservoir should also produce.

Smallmouth and largemouth bass fishing should be good on small and regular Senkos fished off the points and boulder areas. The lake is 26 percent full. The Hart-Tish, Copper, and French Gulch boat ramps are available. The concessionaire at Hart-tish Park has closed camping for the season but the boat ramp should still be available.
