Hi Odd - I go there a couple of times a month. I'll be up there on the weekend of the 11th and 18th.

I fished there over the Memorial Day weekend. The fishing was pretty decent on Friday and Saturday morning; however, the weather seemed to negatively impact the bite as the weather went on. We caught several rainbows and a couple of browns and salmon trolling a number of different lures. We caught most of the fish on orange/silver rainbow runners trolled 10 ft. down. We caught a couple of fish on gold/red speedy shiners, but the rainbow runners seemed to be the hot lure for us.

We primarily stuck to the west side of the lake.

I also caught and released a seven pound carp trolling a J9 orange rapala.
