 Lake level is 1,654 feet (90-percent full.)  The final rainbow trout stockings of the winter season took place last week.

Angler Brian S. reported that water temps are warming up and in a few areas the bass are moving up, however most are still caught deep. This beauty was caught in 35 feet with a hinged spinnerbait with a zoom fluke trailer.
He recommends utilizing sonar electronics is critical for deep water fishing. Find them, mark a way point and slowly work your baits into the strike zone. Pay attention to your sonar through the entire process because once you entice one to bite, have your angling buddy be ready with a flutter spoon or Kastmaster as you may find you just ignited a school of them.

A new fishing pier is under construction in the Boulder Creek Recreation Area. This pier serves as excellent structure for sunfish.

Some anglers have had success throwing dropshot Roboworms in morning dawn near cattails in 10-20 feet of water.

Most bass are in post-spawn, also some big bass can be found guarding beds. Success has been reported using crankbaits at a slow-trolled speed, a half-ounce football jig with a jigger craw and especially dropshots.
Roboworms in a morning dawn color is popular and usually effective with dropshots.

Fishing should improve with warmer weather.  A new fishing pier has been ordered for Canyon Lake Boulder Creek Recreation Area.

Lake level is 1,658 feet (97-percent full.)  Possibly the toughest lake to fish right now because of particularly cold water temperatures.

Throwing trout-imitation swimbaits for monster bass is an option. Bass fishing is poor-to-fair.

Shore fishing for channel catfish and carp can also be viable both day and night right now.

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