I used to love this lake but over the last several years it has become too crowded and the fishing isn't that good. It's still a beautiful lake but probably would only fish it early or late in the year. We were camping up there at stopped by and walked down to the dam. Some guys in a razor had created a new road to bypass the gate and were driving up and down the road to the dam. I usually say something to guys like this but they don't care. They just ruin it for everyone.

Fished it twice earlier in year. Beautiful place, but yes, crowded. I found getting back into the southern half of the lake you leave all the other people behind and can have some solitude. Beetles were the ticket when I was there on Memorial Day.

Only fish it when I can get out on the water, on shore I may hurt someone, even if it's just myself from the stress headache... But I grew up fishing that lake all the time so I still enjoy float tubing or canoeing just for memories, This time of year a sz 14 or 16 tan caddis should catch you some fish It's a very pretty place

I'm a bit confused my own self.

However, it certainly is not about punctuation...
