Dude there isn't 60-80 guides catching limits of trout everyday on the lake. The majority of the guides only guide during the summer months also. I fished about 40 days in June and July, and saw maybe 20 guide boats on the busiest days.
shrimp and other bait are not coming out of the marsh and into the lake
The shrimp showed up couple weeks later than usual, but there was more bait in the lake this summer than I've ever seen. When the weirs look closed, most of the time there is still an opening for bait to swim through.
That lake is a big ol clusterfrick
The lake has it's share of problems, but it's moving in the right direction. The south end is getting rocked soon, and that will help tremendously. Bitching about big lake has been very exaggerated this year. Everyone I fish with had an incredible summer on the lake.
