Lucky you.................. I have had great success with that lake in late October but have never fished it this time of year because mostly its inaccessible . But since we have had NO SNOW or RAIN to speak of , we now have some fishing conditions we are just not used to. So that said, I would have to say I would try what worked for me late Oct or Nov. Got as far back in the lake as I could where the stream enters the main body of the lake at this time. Go maybe 50 or more feet beyond that. half inch or more of Night Crawler. This is the way I got Browns. Im sure there isnt much food and they sit waiting by the stream inlet for whatever comes there way. Including Crawdads. Hope this helps.......

Pray for rain....
