Fishing

The wet fly fishing from season opening until November is excellent. The lake is not overly deep, so fishing floating and intermediate sinking lines is ideal. You will see some mayfly from late spring to early summer. As the lake warms the fishing slows, however, you can still find fish and are more likely to catch them on dries and nymphs.

Access

You can fish from a small boat on this water, or wade the edges; both can be very productive. The western shoreline provides some fishing, and south of the shacks is a good starting area. The best access is via Tooms Lake Road which will take you to the boat ramp and dam wall area.
