The fishing on the Reservoir has been a little hit and miss these days, the surface temperatures are high but there is still a lot of cold water coming into the reservoir from the snow melt. The fish seem to be a little deeper than usual and they also seem to be a little scattered. Some anglers are still reporting some pretty good days and we’ve had some reports of fish up to around 7 pounds being caught and released. Bait anglers are still using mice tails, crawlers, pinched crawlers and power bait, trolling has been decent with Rapalas, needlefish and Thomas Bouyants. There has been some pretty good fly fishing lately too, stripping leech patterns down near the dam has produced some nice browns this past week and there are some fly anglers doing well up in Buckeye Bay stillwater nymphing.
Mike stopped by this morning with a pic of this 20.94 lb carp he caught on a dead drift crayfish......
