Reviewer: Brent Hodges

Quick comment: Tough conditions with a low and dropping lake level, warmer than average water temperature and bright, still conditions – not conducive to pitching lures around the edges. Lots of fish schooled up deep with just a few venturing into the shallows in search of a feed. Rainbow trout were active for short periods during the morning, responding to trolled minnows and Powerbait fished on a running sinker rig.
