With the nasty weather forecast and Easter Dinner to get to later, I decided to stay close to home on some small water rather than hit one of the larger, less protected lakes for kokanee. Fazon has been on my radar for a while, but I had never fished it. Supposedly there are planted browns here, but since they are planted as fry I wonder how many of them just become bass food.
We were on the water by 11, and fought the wind and rain to troll a few laps around this pond. Pulled wedding rings and flatfish to hopefully find a holdover trout or at least trigger a bass strike and get some action. Also tried anchoring up and fishing powerbait off the bottom while casting rooster tails and spoons. Only sign of fish were a couple of BIG marks on the radar near the bottom in 12-20' of water that may have been catfish, and a fingerling jumping across the surface that appeared to be pursued by a bigger fish. We left the lake around 2:30.
Water was up in the parking lot, which I believe is normal for this lake. You'll have to back a long way in to launch, so bring your hip waders. Despite the weather and lack of fish, this was a neat little lake to see and I may come back in the warmer weather to try my hand at bass and see once more if there are a few big browns running around.
