Permit and Boat Rentals are sold at the Ranger Station. We do not sell fishing licenses so anglers must acquire their 2020 licenses elsewhere prior to their visit. Motor boats are discounted to $20 for seniors on Tuesdays and Thursdays and for active military every Saturday.

Due to the threat of Quagga mussels, there is a ban on private water craft and equipment. Restricted equipment includes; private boats, canoes, kayaks, float tubes, trolling motors, fish finders, anchors, and other equipment that contacts the water.

Wednesday’s plant is the first of two consecutive weekly trout plants and was a shot in the arm for the trout bite. Gary Greetis owns bragging rights for big fish of the week with his 14.20# whopper caught on orange & white powerbait near the Crappie Float. The late bite has been more productive then the early bite and they have been catching the trout on Senior Shoreline and on the east end.

The bass bite remains slow with very few bass being reported. Largemouth Bass can be found around structure. They respond well to crawdads, swimbaits, and dark colored plastics.

The crappie have been elusive, for the most part, having retreated to their winter haunts. Crappie are most often caught on finger jigs or live golden shiners.

Each month Whopper Contest winners in four categories are awarded a free fishing and boating permit. For information on the contest or fishing conditions, please contact the Ranger Station at (760) 839-4346.
