The storage report says 52% if Im reading it right. Should be able to launch. I launched a drift boat at 1% and there is a road thats paved way lower than you would believe.
I'll be taking my boat to Clemens Marine for repairs next week and swing by if no one has a report

Stopped by Baker Bay ramp after dropping my boat off for repairs.
About 40ft from max pool ramp has dock floating and across from Baker bay the other ramp is open no dock.
Fishing is slow but water is clean and clear talked to a couple of guys and only small planters and few. Where the "trophy" planters are who knows. Caught 1 12" from shore and threw back some that were less than 6"
Still a great place to go.

Truck camped on Friday. Caught about 10 decent 14+ inchers all released. The next day caught about 30 trout all around the perimiter of the lake. Kayaked from Baker Bay down to the dam back to the mouth of the Row and back down to rat creek. Caught fish trolling a pink hoochie 10 inch back from a solid gold arrow flash. Around 10 feet down max. Was slaying them the night before on a fin spin but the didn't want it that friday. Good fighting fish and some wilds in there too.

went out this afternoon and had the same experience as the guys above. Seems to be god numbers of fish hanging out in the top 10ft or so. Didn't find any big concentrations, but got a bunch by trolling around over 50-60ft of water long lining plugs and flashers. Fish were 14-15" and pretty solid for stockers.

Hit it today (sunday) around 11 done by 3 due to a lighter bite. Same spots same gear but a 2.5 mag in silver and blue did really good. Castin chrome kastmaster produce a few while trolling. Garlic Mikes spray seemed to help. A few more trips until Diamond opens. Fished out of Duanes drift boat no labs or wife

One last time for awhile until I take the old Grady out to see if she still floats and run her at Dorena
Fished in Duanes drift boat again with limits in less than 3hrs. Same setups Galic Mikes Flicker Shad in Rainbow 2-2.5 mag in blue and a speckle black.
Lost at least 12 at the boat. Fish are fatter and meat turning more orange.

Went out from 11-2 today. Water is really high, but visibility is still good. Caught 8 13-15"ers fishing a small diving plug and a hooch and gulp or just gulp egg behind a flasher. Both probably in the top 10-12ft of water.

I've had similar experiences recently at Cottage Grove and Drexel reservoirs. Nice sized fish, biting in the top 10ft and scattered around some.

I know another report but it sure is fun this yr.
Res is really full and fish are spread out but seem to be feeding well and putting on weight
Fished out of Duanes drift boat again and limits after 2.5 hrs missed a few and released some
14-18" same setup

One of the funniest trips I've had in many a yr . And even learned a few new tricks . Levie is a great guy to fish with and his sidekick Curtis are a blast together plus throw in Benton his pup and you will have a great trip not to mention an incredible boat. If anyone gets a chance to fish with them don't turn it down
Thanks again
