Got my boat back and wanted to test it out on a safe small body of water. Arrived at 10am surprised at how low the lake was since my last trip in May. They really pulled water from this small lake this year. The tree tops are starting to show now so be careful. 3 casts in I hook a nice one on a crank bait . I figure its on baby. Ya right.. it was very tough for me. I did not bring much tackle on this boat test run and struggled to get another bite. I could not make the adjustments I wanted to make. The fish are holding deep,25-30feet along with the bait. A jig or drop shot would be the ticket,but I left them at home and went big all day looking for a giant. Even though fishing was tough it’s always good to see these lakes when the water is low to learn about the lake. The low water level makes the lake seem very crowded with just a few trout anglers. The good news is they are now stocking fresh trout or bass popcorn so swim baiters low water, condensed fish keyed in on trout? Hmm huddy time should be turning on! When the water gets in the mid fifty range this lake could just go off!
