Well, I bit on Bill Monroe's column in Sunday's Oregonian and decided to check it out that same day (March 18th).
Very clean and developed access - perfect for the disabled angler, wheel chair. The down side is that there is a LOT of lake for these fish to disperse to - compared to what you can access from the east (shopping center) bank. So, not a dial in and get your limit in an hour type lake.
I figured with the 60 foot depth - fishing off the bottom probably not the best option. I worked Pauzke's and power bait under a slip float - anywhere from 5 to 10 feet with not a nibble. Others with worms - same result.
Saw one hooked and landed on a spinner - first cast
. Sooo, I went back to my small pink rooster tail and .....
Funny how a fish can brighten an otherwise rain, sleet, snowy day.
Worth a few casts if you are in the neighborhood - you just might get lucky like I did.
