Lost Creek received its first stocking of 20,000 legal rainbow trout the week of March 18.  There should still be good populations of holdover fish from last year as well. The lake is 87 percent full and both ramps are usable. Surface temperature has risen to 49 degrees.

Recent reports indicate anglers have found success on red wedding rings fished with a worm behind a dodger or flashers, as well as PowerBait fished deep while trolling.

Some of the trout have external parasites called copepods. Fish parasites generally do not pose a threat to humans when fish are cooked, and copepods can be scraped off prior to cooking. Anglers are encourage to keep fish that have copepods while staying within the daily limit, since release simply allows the parasite to expand to other hosts.
