Troll a Needlefish and you never know what you’re going to hook up with at Shaver Lake. While the rainbow trout and kokanee bites take off in the spring, anglers also have an outside shot at catching a brown or brook trout along the way. Fishermen hoping for rainbows should troll light-colored Needlefish, gold Kastmasters or spoons near the dam, marina and various creek inlets around the lake. Tunnel Creek and Edison Cove are good spots for soaking bait. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
