Bait fishing for trout is popular. Use a sliding sinker rig and bait such as salmon eggs or small garlic marshmallows.
Many larger fish are caught on lures like Mepps Lightin’ Rooster Tails and Panther Martins. Wolly worm flies also work. Even though the fish can be big, light tackle is in order.
Spinning tackle with 4 or 6 pound line, with patience and skill, will land even a 10 pounder. Trout fishing is good at the northwest corner of the lake and at the south end. Catfishing is best on the east shore.
Work the brushy areas for Florida-strain largemouth bass. This type of facility is a great place to teach a kid about fishing. Some days it’s hard not to catch a fish!
