Fishing Report: Managed as a quality lake Jimmy is blessed with good quantities of aquatic insects and can provide the fly fisherman early spring Chironomid, Mayfly and Dragonfly hatches along with good dry fly action during the mid-June to early July Caddisfly hatch. Rainbows will reach 6 lbs. or better but be patient. Regulations stipulate that there is no fishing between Dec. 1 - April 30, with a single barbless hook, bait ban, and only 1 fish can be kept per day with none under 50 cm. (20 in.) thereby ensuring that there will be large fish left in the lake. This is an excellent lake and it must be kept that way by practicing catch and release.
