No bites at all

on August 15th

We trolled with an electric motor for 3 hours around the 5MPH limit sign going up Deer Creek. We could see fish in schools under us with the finder. They did not like lure or cheese bait. We also used the down rigger in about 90' of water..nothing!

Fishing Tips for Scotts Flat Lake

on November 3rd

I don't have much of a report for Scotts Flat Lake but I do have a few things to add. First of all you can swim or go water skiing here but you cannot go Jet Skiing. Second there is a boat launch at the marina if you bring your own boat. If not, you can rent a boat. Good luck fishing!
