It has been years snce I was there in the summer of 1979. The reason I went, was because of one lady I worked with- her family had a lot of get togethers there. Her uncle set trotlines on the lake. We were obviously not where they went. I set lines out near a bridge that the river fed into the lake. Yep, we used soap too. Caught Blues & Channels. The lady's uncle seems to have set lines out on the other end of the lake, near some canyon walls. She said the lake would be shallow, then have holes. The big Yellows would be in the holes. She said they skied near where they had the lines set at. Of course they were using perch for bait. But she would show pics of 40+ pound Yellows from their trips.
