Empire Lakes were stocked with trophy trout, legal-size, and “pounder” rainbows this spring. Trout fishing may slow down with warmer weather heating up these shallow lakes.

Warmwater species like bluegill, crappie, yellow perch, and largemouth bass should be biting well in the summer, but aquatic vegetation can be thicker in the shallow areas. Try frog imitation lures and popping lures around weed lines to entice the bass.
