Conditions : PANGUITCH LAKE: The water level continues to slowly rise. There is still a lot of snow on the mountain, so look for the lake to fill more quickly in May. Trolling is starting to produce good results for rainbow trout and medium-sized cutthroat trout. Shore fishing has been slow to fair, although some big fish can be caught if you use the right tackle. Some small rainbow trout can be caught with popular baits (PowerBait, nightcrawler/marshmallow). Fly anglers can pick up rainbows and cutthroat with nymphs, leeches and woolly buggers. For bigger fish, cast bigger flies. If you really want to get into bigger fish, try fishing cut bait (chub, sucker, shiners or anchovies), as well as tube jigs and swimbaits tipped with cut bait. White is usually the best color for jigs and swimbaits, although darker colors (olive green, pepper or smoke) have also been producing. Most fish caught with these methods will be slot-sized cutthroat and tiger trout that must be released, although anglers are also catching a few large rainbows and slot busters. If you're still-fishing with cut bait, use large single hooks and fish it actively (hold the pole in your hand or watch it closely) so you can set the hook as soon as the fish picks up the bait. If the fish does swallow the hook, just cut the line rather than try to pull the hook out.
