Went late afternoon, overcast and about 52 degrees. No water coming down from the spillway. Lots of little fish (5 inches). Used a "zub bug" (#18) with an indicator. The hike was fun but not really worth making an out-of-the-way trip.

Never fished it; were they stockies, or wild?

I am not going to blow smoke, I am so new to identifying fish I'd probably get it wrong anyways! LOL I am going to guess wild in the sense that their color and size weren't of the "stock" type I found at "Forebay" Reservoir (which is located write outside the main road {Carson Road} across from the Safeway in town).

A biologist friend told me at one time there were some big Browns down there, that was not the case for me.
