Where to Fish West Fishtail Creek Lake 40

West Fishtail Creek Lake 40 West Fishtail Creek Lake 40


Fish have made it down here from plants in the lakes above. Good spawning in inlet, ok in outlet. Great looking stream section ~1 mile below. '98 - 2-5" fish observed. Obvious reproduction here. '98 fish were very fat. In 2004 9-11" fish were observed. Very spooky fish were seen in the creek below the lake. They may winter here as the lake is very shallow.
