Fishing Report 5/16/2022

The trout fishing has been fantastic the past week. There has been fairly consistent evening hatches going on and fishing streamers has resulted in multiple trout and bass in the net. The water was getting pretty low and warm, but we are getting a bump up in the water levels now with some showers that will extend our trout season.

We did some floats on the small mouth bass section this week and were fairly productive. The bass are getting into their spawning routine and will most likely quiet down for a bit before ramping up again to the post spawn feeding frenzy. A few pike have been caught as well and they should all be post spawn by now.

Weekends are mostly filled up for the next few weeks but we do have some weekdays available so give us a ring to book a trip.
