Showers lake deserves zero stars. I watched at least a dozen other fishermen cast out over and over without so much as a nibble. I tried rooster tails, nymphs, worms, salmon eggs and even netted some minnows but nothing bit. There was a lot of insect activity over the water with many landing but not a single fish fed on the surface. My hiking partner is convinced that there are no fish in this lake.

There are fish but could not catch them

on July 5th

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.
