    Report: Hey guys,just a question? Does anyone know what kind of fish hit the top of the water at dusk?
    I've been out here many times when I can't get a bite and then around dusk fish start to jump all over the lake (north) I,ve tried flies, floating bait, mellows no hits. Just wobndering what they are and how to catch them. :-)

    Report: 2 hrs - soft plastics, slow rolled Bass Assassinator spinner bait, Rattlin Rogue jerk bait...lots of lures. No Bites. Bank fished the South Lake. After the rain yesterday, I wasn't expecting much, but have caught before during and after rain there in the past.... In the impoundment, I did see a fish jump twice. Might have been a carp, however.

    The big news is that the DPW pier on the SW side of the South Lake near the bridge is completely cleared of tules. I suppose fishing for trout casting from the pier will be much, much better, now.
