These beautiful sunny days have brought a lot of people out to Collins Lake this week and some of the fish being caught are huge.

“Dino Tribuzi was shore fishing with rainbow PowerBait when he hooked a gigantic 14 lb. 3 oz. catfish,” reported Kathy Hess at the Collins Lake Resort. “Sumerlyn Whicker caught 3 rainbows, her biggest a 6 lb. 4 oz. beauty, while shore fishing by the dock with worms and marshmallows.”

Chartreuse Power Eggs helped little Wyatt Joseph in landing his 5 lb. 8 oz. rainbow trout. “His sister Miranda and big brother Owen helped him a little bit,” noted Hess.

Tony Delong and his friend Kasie caught 6 rainbows while trolling the lake with a dodger and a Hoochie, between the dam and the inlet.

“Mike Gugzy along with the Peters brothers (Chris and Robert) caught a total of 14 trout. They trolled the middle of the lake using a flasher along with a nightcrawler. What a great time they had,” said.

Yang, Chew, Choua, and Tatley hooked 6 rainbows off the sand beach on PowerBait. One of them caught a gorgeous 3 lb. 12 oz. trout.

The boat launch at Collins Lake is in full operation.
