Fishing Report: While most catches are about 1 lb., rainbows up to 7 pounds have been recorded. This lake is very popular with fishers. Trolling, spinning and fly fishing are all popular. In May the spawning fish can be seen in the habitat enhancement area in Watch Creek, with caution not to disturb them.
