Fished West Lake 4-16 and had a good day. The trout were definitely bitting well on hardware - I caught them on 1/8 ounce Kastmasters and Mepps spinners. Most were 10 to 14 inches, nothing bigger this time although I know there are some big trout in the lake. This is a great lake to take the kids as there are plenty of trout and it has super easy access. The only drawback in the spring is the wind but I like to fish in the late afternoons when it's not so bad. Nearby Dowdy and Bellair are two other good options though they typically don't produce the size of the fish West does and they get more pressure.
