Water temperatures are cooling off and anglers are having decent fishing success. There are good numbers of fish in multiple size classes. Fish mostly feed on aquatic insects like midges, damselflies, redside shiners, leeches and zooplankton. PowerBait, worms, spoons, spinners, fly presentations and small minnow-imitation baits can all work here. Don't be afraid to harvest some fish as low water levels could impact populations later this year. Anglers and recreational users should be aware there is an algal bloom that exceeds warning levels according to Tri-County Health Department and the Department of Water Quality. Under these circumstances, bacteria can reproduce quickly and begin to produce cyanotoxins that most commonly cause skin irritation and gastrointestinal illnesses, although some toxins can cause liver, neurological or respiratory problems. Even in the absence of these toxins, the cyanobacteria can cause gastrointestinal distress and skin irritation. These blooms can also pose serious health risks to pets and livestock. Fishing is still open but please wash hands with clean water before eating or preparing food. When harvesting your catch, clean fish well and discard the guts. For more up-to-date information, please visit the Department of Environmental Quality's website.
