This is a general winter fishing report. If a good bite is reported, it will be posted. Otherwise, weekly fishing reports will resume in March.
The unarmored portion of the dam is currently being protected with rip rap from the highway project. Please be careful in these areas as the material will need to be cleaned of excess metal before next spring. Thank you!
A bathymetric map of the lake is now posted on the lake page. It clearly shows the location of the springs at the north end.
