Fishing Report

Anglers has the best success with night crawlers. Trout and bass were caught before the worm hit the bottom. Mornings are still the best time to fish, since afternoons heat up the water too much.  Rooster tails were also working well for the trout but chases are good for getting caught in weeds as well. Try either single hook or weedless hook options with a bobber. Some anglers have gotten out on kayaks and boats and found some bass in the back tules.
