Rainbow trout are showing a preference for Mice Tails and Rooster Tails at Willow Beach. The fish are feeding in the early mornings and late afternoon. River anglers are catching striped bass up to 20 pounds just south of Willow Beach. Swimbaits in trout patterns are working from shore and for trollers. Anglers are seeing an increase in black bass catches on the lake. Telephone Cove and the coves just north of Cottonwood Basin are hot spots for fish up to 3 pounds. Soft plastics and pencil poppers are two popular lure choices.
