I may fish it in the morning. It's a toss up between there and crystal basiin area. I will let you know how I do if I go. :)

Well my buddy went up there last weekend and didnt catch a thing. They spotted fish on the finder but went bittin nothin. they tried top line downrigged and bait. Nothin was workin. Said that they saw some big fish but couldnt produce a bite. It has been a week and things might have changed. if you go let me know how it went. GOOD LUCK!

I fished Stumpy last Sunday with my daughter. We got on the water late,11:00am and fished until 3:30pm. We landed 16 planter size rainbows and some ldr's,sdr's, trolling Sep's 2 inch frog green grubs and watermelon grubs. No dodger,flasher.sidekick.etc... NAKED!!! Small size 6 khale style hooks was the only way to hookup. Anything bigger would'nt stick. 12 to 25 ft. down on the riggers and 50-75 ft. back. 0.8-2 mph on the gps and varying the speed produced strikes. Scented the grubs with Procure nightcrawler. Far end of the lake is where we found the most action with a few double hook-ups. Good luck, PHM

Thanks PHM for the report.
That sounds like decent action for a late start. I bet those big fish were some lunker browns. Anyone rip any big swimbaits up there lately?

Stumpy has catfish also.

do catfish show up the same on the FF as the trout?
