I have fished a lot in my life, and I always catch something, but this lake needs restocking more often, because there are hardly any trout in that lake.

good fishing, even in summer

on July 15th

My cousin and I fished off of Pine Point Trail and caught 4 nice rainbows. We got there around 8:00am and had one within the first hour. By noon they were very active and we ended up taking home four. Sliding sinker with about a 26 inch leader and powerbait. I heard they haven't stocked since May but it was good fishing anyway!
