Showers Lake near South Lake Tahoe, California
I tried every lure in my box of tricks. panther martins, super dupers, spoons, rooster tails...... Also tried rainbow and orange power baits. Had a couple of bites but nothing big on the orange power bait. Tried to catch live bait but there is nothing up there to catch. I bet worms or throwing flies would be killer up there. Lots of trout in the morning and evening hitting the surface and there was lost of mosquito's and a few moth hatches that had gone off.
