I was up there this weekend as well. First fish Saturday morning was a beauty 5lb rainbow. Put her back to get even bigger. Action was pretty steady for planters with no fins. Only two small rat macks this trip. All fish caught downrigging at 20-35ft. The EID has put in a collection post for launching at the old Kaye's Resort. Put $10 in the envelope and launch early if you like...no gates or anything.

Saw you on the water, nice boat the red sides with the Steve's fishing supplies, can be seen for a long ways off. We were to old

Hey folks..

What the water level like up there..having already nailed one prop >:( this year, i am hesistant to bring my boat up there.. :-/ I've driven by it, but not paid much attention to the size as well..I have a 21' bayliner, howz the launch ramp as well???

I'm heading up there to camp this w/e, and am undecided on bringing the tug-boat up. ;D

Thanks for all the info on the Sniffer!

OK...I remember you guys :) There were more fish in that hole than anywhere in the lake, but they seemed to be holding in that 20-35ft range. All you guys need is a little clamp-on downrigger to get down to them for a little steadier action. The topwater was running 70.7 Sat and 71.8 Sunday and the thermocline started at 20ft. Good luck up there. We marked some monsters on Saturday...no takers. Sunday they were nowhere to be found. Makes you wonder where they go in a lake that small.

Water levels are fine, but there ARE slightly submerged lunker boulders along some of the shoreline. Definite prop/outdrive eaters. Stay offshore a safe distance and you should be fine out in the open part of the lake. Launching shouldn't be a problem.
