First time fishing this lake so it took a day to figure it out. Water level is way down so ramp out of commission; need to launch from a rocky beach. This lake will likely be better a month from now. Caught 2 the first day, 4 the next morning, and 5 the last morning; all 10-12 inch planters. Best bet: troll in circles around the left dam area at 30 feet. Marked tons of fish the last morning in that area but they only bit from about 6:30 am to 8:30 am then the bite shut down. The fish here want green colors: green wedding ring, green glow tiger uncle larry, half crawler behind flashers. No hits on naked lures like needlefish and rainbow runners. One fish took a pink uncle larry with half crawler. Water temp was 69 degrees and found that it was better to troll around 1.2 mph versus 1.5 mph.

forgat the corn, it might have made the difference
