Advice and Tips
Although fishing is usually best in the spring and fall, maintained high water levels
throughout the year should improve the summer fishery.
Fly fishermen should use nymph and damsel patterns in the spring and dark wooly
buggers and leeches the rest of the year. Remember to use a heavy leader.
Bait fishermen should fish off the bottom with Power Bait, salmon eggs, or night
crawlers with a minimal amount of weight. Spinners and spoons are popular with the
casters, but a fly and a bubble produces excellent results.
For those willing to brave the elements, weighted jigs (green or yellow) seem to work best for ice fishing.
