You'll have to keep moving on this lake. Trout suddenly turn on and off, and they move around. If you're not catching fish in one area, move to another. Keep moving until you find willing fish. Of course, with 100 square miles of water, trout have plenty of places to go. But poor summer water quality limits their choices. Look for them in: Pelican Bay, the spring creeks that feed this bay, and the mouth of the Williamson River.

The lake is rich in blood midges, so red midge pupa patterns can be productive at dusk. Sometimes small size 18-20 Soft Hackles and other small nymphs will work for anglers who ply them during the daylight hours while using a slow retrieve and a clear intermediate line.
