21,500lbs of Nebraska 'Tailwalker' rainbow trout up to 16lbs in size have been stocked in our gorgeous 44 acre lake in the last 9 weeks! Our lake is always protected from the wind and lake levels never fluctuate!
2,500lbs of trout up to 12lbs in size will be trucked in from Bridgeport, Nebraska on Wednesday January 28th.
Trout fishing has been awesome with 5 fish limits being caught in 1 hour or less! Many 'double' fish limits being caught for anglers every day. The heavy stockings of trout has kept the fast pace action going all the way to the day before the next stocking! Trout are still averaging 2lb to 3lbs in size with no small fish reported. Hundreds of trout in the 3lb to 6lb class being weighed in at the scales every week including some 'trophy' trout in the 7lb to 12lb class!
Pink and white mouse tails dipped in 'Bite On' garlic scent has been working best with inflated night crawlers and garlic power bait coming in a close second. Jigs and trout tails in purple, bubble gum and white working well being drop shot or jigged 12" off the bottom. Fly fisherman enjoying a much improved midge bite with lots of fish being hooked up in front of the boat dock and in the flats by three pipes. Best area has been by the bubble holes in front of the concession building and in the flats by the launch ramp. Shore anglers picking up trout in all zones.

John Arrolbido of Anaheim caught an 8lb 05oz trout soaking an inflated night crawler dipped in 'bite on' garlic scent off a boat at the bubble holes.
