Report: I have been fishing here since i could walk. There are many days i have limited out just fishing from the shore. Some days i catch nothing. Early spring is the best for trout, late summer is best for bass. There are nice trophy fish in the lake as well.

Report: Me and a buddy fished this lake by means of a small alluminum boat. We trolled, fished the bottom, checked out numerous different inlets of the lake, & even fished by bobber while anchored. The day was spectacular, but the fishing was minimal....very minimal.

Report: Fishing from the banks at this lake is pretty futile I was born and raised in the area and have been here hundreds of times. I went there on Saturday afternoon and rented a trolling boat for two hours, I landed 13 fish in those two hours and kept the two biggest which were 16 and 18 inches respectively. Thats what I call a great time!

Number of People Encountered: 0-10 ppl
Recommend to a Friend: Neutral
Report: Off and on rain...caught two legal rainbows off powerbait...both pretty small 11-12 inches.
