Small tench have also started to show in catches reported.
Bear Lake: Plenty of carp beginning to show, multiple catches continue to be reported. Carp to 11lb are showing to carp tactics, but other methods are working well to find the feeding fish.
Boillie, pellet and corn have been the more rewarding baits.
