November 17, 2018
The docks have been pulled for the winter but, anglers can still launch boats. Fishing is very good using worms, powerbait, salmon eggs, and gold spinners for trout. Fishing for perch is good using worms and small jigs. Pike fishing is fair using crank baits and worms. Kokanee snagging is picking up gradually.
