Anglers reported catching a lot of rainbows and a few wipers trolling Rapalas throughout the reservoir in fall. Try colors that imitate tui chub and rainbow trout, favorite food sources for both trout and hybrid bass. Bait fishing can also be productive at this reservoir. People can also do well fly-fishing with leech and minnow imitations for both rainbow trout and hybrid bass. This reservoir never freezes over and is a great opportunity to catch fish throughout the winter months.

The new state record hybrid bass (white and striped bass cross) was caught in Ana Reservoir on Dec. 10, 2014. The fish was caught using a Rapala crankbait on 10 lb. test line and measured 31½ inches with a girth of 24 inches. The fish weighed 19 lbs. 12 oz.

Another 16-pound hybrid bass was caught last year and hybrid bass larger than 20 inches are not uncommon. Hybrid bass are targeted successfully using crank baits and fishing bait along the bottom.
