There have been some reports from Starman and others regarding the lake, mostly from 2015-16 and prior. I am meeting some old friends there right after Memorial Day and planning on an extended stay, May 28-June 7, 2024. Itís not a fishing trip in priority, more like a reunion of old friends from the PNW. We chose the location as a base to explore the northern state and there will be wives, only one other is a Flyfisher and a beginner at that, I thought this would be an opportunity to educate him and possibly explore the McC, upper Sac and other water, in addition to the lake, conditions permitting.
Initial research shows the lake gets planted with rainbows, browns and bookies and has a decent smallmouth population and some holdovers so Iím hoping to have an opportunity, sounds like it might be a sinking line and leech/bugger/crayfish presentation unless obvious hatches occur. We have boats, fishfinder and I have found some bathymetric charts which are helpful.
Any information youíd care to share would be appreciated.
