98-percent full (909 feet). Bass fishing is fair, although there have been reports of some monster largemouth bass being caught. It's a great time to fish for bluegill and even crappie.

The fishing pier at the Boulders remains closed for repairs. The area is open for drivers/shoreline fishing.

While Canyon is the land of the lunkers, it can be tough to fish, especially for novice anglers. Catch rates are typically low and even veteran anglers get skunked here. But the possibility of catching a hawg keeps many anglers coming back time and again.

This is a pretty good lake for bluegill and yellow bass. Try small crappie-like lures, such as 2-inch curly tails, along the rocky shoreline.

Shore fishing for channel catfish and carp can also be viable both day and night right now. As the season progresses, the better fishing for bottom dwellers will transition to the nighttime hours.

However, this could be a great time for spawning bluegill.

Shore fishing for channel catfish and carp can also be viable both day and night right now. As the season progresses, the better fishing for bottom dwellers will transition to the nighttime hours.
