All the lakes are open and ready for you to get out and enjoy! Don’t forget your life jackets!
Trolling for Salmon is best this time of year. Use a Wedding Ring lure behind Cow Bells around 15-20ft below water surface.
Rainbows should be close to spawning cycle, so use a planer board and troll with a flicker shad in 10-15ft of water.
Perch are ready to spawn so look for large patches of weeds in shallow water. Crappie bite should be picking up so use Pete’s Crappie Candy casting in different depths.
Water levels are still low so use caution launching your boat.
Be prepared to use different tactics from Crank Baits to Finesse Plastics. Big Sky Bass Bash on 04/27. Reports of a few Crappie using Pete’s Big Eye Spinner and Crappie Candy.
Use extreme caution when entering. The river is getting dirty making the sand bar difficult to see.
Lake Trout are being caught throughout the lake. Troll with a Red/White Flat Fish along the bottom. Jig with Glo Grubs and cut bait. Perch bite is doing very well in East Bay. Remember you can only keep 10 Perch over 10”!
Water levels have been on the rise and continues to get dirtier daily. Use caution when floating and stay clear of obstacles. Nymphs are working well.

Roads are still snowed in.
Water levels are extremely low at Rexford launch. Reports of nice Rainbows using jointed Rapala’s in rainbow pattern.
Lake Mary Ronan
Perch should be spawning soon so focus on shallow areas with lots of weeds or structure.
Good numbers of Lake Trout in 80ft of water trolling with Brad’s Cut Plugs. Combine that with an e-chip flasher for maximum effect.
Perch are biting well and remember only 10 Perch over 10”.
