Thanks to Moccasin Hatchery we are still getting some great plants.  Receiving plants every other week.  Trout planted are huge, up to 4 lbs. & better.  Fishermen are still doing very well from the South cove to the inlet.  Still fishermen are using Panther Martins, crawlers and power baits.  Trollers are using blades with either nightcrawlers, Kastmaster, Needlefish or Triple Teazer.

You may fish year round at Pinecrest lake. Rainbow Trout are planted on a bi-weekly basis from Memorial Weekend through mid-September.

Streams have finally slowed down.  Still keep an eye on the kids and pets.  

Beardsley Reservoir – Boat ramp access will not be available this year due to the road washing out.  No reports from the afterbay.

Can drive to the dam, park on opposite side & walk to lake.  Use crawlers or power baits.

Clarks Fork – Nice trout being pulled out.  Panther Martins, Mepps & Flies all doing good.  4 lb. trout pulled out with Parachute Adams.

Fraiser Flat –  Mini crawlers or eggs doing good.

Kennedy Meadow – Finally some good fishing.  Salmon eggs, Rooster Tail or Panther Martin.  Fly fishermen are catching with Parachute Adams, Adams, Copper John.
