Fishing Report: A fly fisherman's dream. Plateau is a long narrow spring fed lake, with extensive shoal areas stretching from the shoreline to a deep trench running the length of the lake. It supports good populations of aquatic insects including a very good Caddisfly hatch in late June, early July. Dry fly fishermen do very well if they hit the lake when the hatch is on. Subject to periodical winterkill, fishermen should consult with locals or fly shops as to the condition of the lake. With the absence of winterkill for several years, Plateau is capable of producing large Rainbows up to 10 lbs., but trout in the 3-4 lb. range are more the norm. This lake can yield spectacular results and is definitely worth a couple days of fishing.
Be sure to visit for angling information!
