This lake was stocked with 700 legal and 300 larger rainbow trout the week of May 27. Anglers were doing excellent two weeks ago bait fishing along the shore, trolling in boats and casting from float tubes. There were a number of full stringers of trophy and legal rainbows. It looked like all methods of fishing produced trout; trolling spoons, leech patterns, casting indicators, bait fishing with both worms and PowerBait on the surface and the bottom.

Illegal introductions of brown bullhead catfish have been negatively impacting overwinter survival and the rainbow trout fishery. People have been catching brown bullhead over 15-inches with worms. ODFW encourages the retention of all brown bullhead caught in this fishery.
