Fishing Report 4-14-17 from DWR

The water level is still rising, but the water has started to clear up.  Anglers report fair fishing when drifting nymphs on gravel shorelines and points. The pattern favored by the fish can vary day to day, so you may have to try a few things.  One angler recommended black zebra midges in sizes 16 and 18 because larger flies were ignored.  Midge patterns are often a good choice.  

Our annual monitoring survey found fair numbers of fat, healthy rainbow trout.  Fish in the 17 to 22 inch range are readily available.  Wipers are also doing fantastic, with an abundance of 4 to 6 pound fish.  We also saw a few larger wipers that were up to 8 pounds.  Look for wipers to get more active as the water warms into the 50's in the the next few weeks.
