Just got back from a trip to Diamond and the fishing was the best that i have ever seen. Between 11 guys we caught well over 100 fish in 3 full days of fishing. All of the fish that we caught were nice and fat. My guess is that they are leftovers from last year. I truly recommend that if anyone has a free weekend they need to get down there ASAP. Powerbait seemed to be just what the doctor ordered for those fatty's. Here's some pic's of the first 2 fish that i caught of the trip and a solid stringer. They weren't the biggest but damn nice bow's to get the blood flowin. Between all of us guys we caught 25 fish that were 20-22 inches. One of the guys caught a 25 inch, 5 pounder. Good luck to all if u go. DIAMOND LAKE IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Were you just still fishing for them out on the boat? Did trolling work at all?

i also heard from a close friend
that there is a less known, very successful
Way less populated lake right next door to Diamond.

Can anyone confirm this?

Its a nice lake but doesn't get the size of fish that Diamond does. It does have browns in it I believe.

I'll be up there Thursday and Friday. What's the go to method up there right now? Trolling or just plunking bait? I've seen all the pivcs and success stories, but haven't heard how they're nailing 'em. Thanks:)

Anything will catch fish up there until now or very soon. Thats when they start eating a lot of bugs and only the best fly fisherman or guys that know how to fish flies or jigs will be able to still catch large numbers of fish. You can go out there up until now and catch fish with your eyes closed. :) Not sure if the big hatches have started but they will soon. When I was up there powerbait worked well and trolling was effective as well. Good luck out there!

If for some reason nothing is working you might try a fly and bobber set up. I have some fly's you can borrow if you bring em back.

Thanks for the report man. That's good to know about the fly hatches coming soon. Are there Brookies in there too? Thought I heard that.
