Tony Orlina Glenn Hester 8 Tailwalkers Nightcrawlers trolling East

Tony Orlina, a lake regular, and Glenn Hester, visiting from Kentucky, both caught limits on Saturday, April 20th (photo). They were trolling deep on the East side of the lake and using night crawlers for bait.

Remember next Wednesday, April 24th is our last trout stock of the season. So if you want a chance at hooking some big Tailwalkers come out next week.

Bass are biting well on a variety of artificials.

Once again please release spawning bass, we do not stock bass so the only way to maintain the population is to allow them to spawn.

Final stock: April 24th, 1,000 pounds of Tailwalkers.

Stocking schedule subject to change.
