Conditions : WILLOW SPRINGS LAKE: Fishing is fair. The lake was stocked with rainbow trout in September for the last time! Boat fishing is good. The lake is fully mixed, allowing trout to be found at all depths. Tiger trout are more aggressive (like brown trout), try using lures from shore or trolling, but can be caught on PowerBait. Kastmasters, spinners, spoons, rapalas, or flies like wooly buggers, nymphs, or dry flies like parachute adams. Meal worms or night crawlers seem to be catching Tiger Trout as well. Tiger trout can be distinguished from rainbow trout by their worm-like or blotchy pattern on their body compared to the rainbow trout small black spots. Tiger Trout count toward your 6 trout bag limit. The campground is closed. Turn in your application for the state record, so far we only have 3 applications, with 8 inches being the largest caught and kept, and 10 inches being the largest kept and released!
