I fished with Tom Blotter from Minden NV a couple weeks ago and we had good success with Rapala's or needle fish. I tried a Dick Slammer in a green and red pattern and had very good success for the smaller 10 to 17 inch class rainbows. I was also blessed with a 2.2 lb tagged rainbow. Fished this week with Geary Ness from Minden Nv. We started out with geary 4 fish and Doug zero fish. We were toplining Rapalas on the north end. After eight hours of fishing we had caught and released many fish and kept two that weighed in at 2.10 lbs and 3.8 lbs. With the full moon and the warmer weather the fishing has slowed down a little. Many anglers were using flashers and night crawler with good success. The best area was on the north end of the lake. One angler I spoke to at the ramp told me they fished right down the middle of the lake and had very good luck, They were using flashers.
