Hit Fishtrap Lake for “hot” springtime trout fishing (1st and 2nd week in May). That’s Stan Grater’s 4 ½ pound bruiser in the picture! He landed the BIG ONE, but I came in a close second with my 4 pounder. The lake has been well-stocked for the season with over 11,000 trout (of which 900 were at least 3 pounds). We fished it twice in May & were thrilled at the action. The main bite seemed to turn on from the mid-morning to early afternoon, before slowing noticeably. The scenery was great & Mother Nature delivered one of those great fishing days. Most fish were hitting my typical spinners & lures, while Stan had his hookups trolling colorful, home fashioned flies.  Unfortunately, shore fishing is really limited to the boat launch & those I spoke with reported slow, slow action with the powerbait.
