Trout


► Look for trout in the Rocky Point area. Use Woolly Buggers and similar streamers. Damselfly nymphs are also a good choice. Red midge pupa patterns are another option, as are size 12-14 green Hares Ears. Use a clear intermediate line. Fish the reeds along the edges when the light is low during the early morning and dusk.

► You may also find trout in the south end of the lake, near Pelican Marina and Moore Park.
