Not many reports yet, as it just opened to fishing for the season. Hopefully someone will provide an update. I'm sure however the bass are catchable as we've seen good numbers being caught at smaller waters around the metro area.
I've seen people fishing out there since it opened, but I don't know where they are parking since 100th Ave is closed. There is a pull off spot on McKay but someone is usually parked there (police lol) and fishing from the east bank isn't allowed.
just fished there yesterday i caught a nice 3 pounder my first cast while i was getting a birdsnest out of my baitcaster and i saw a male and a female along the shorline and i tried pitching it to the big female (at least 3 1/2 pounds) and the male slammed my senko and i set the hook too early so i casted again and hey nialated the worm and i set the hook so good on him and brought him in and he weighed at a little over 2 pounds, it was great weather it was about 73 little windy but it was just fine by me, ill try to post the pictures in a little bit, hope that helps
Just fished of the west pier closest to the parking lot in the little rock formation, no bites on a minow or creature but saw a huge turtle that was interested. Where is the optimum location and lure at this lake?

No optimum lure for this lake. Try to match the conditions (water, weather, forage) to the best suited lures and then toss everything you have until you have some luck. This is one of the toughest lakes in the Thornton area, but also has some of the largest bass.
As for location, bass can be caught just about anywhere, but the best rule of thumb for any lake is get away from the crowds. The majority of the people fish off the west pier or along the shorelines in front of the parking lot. Head south next time. Lot less fishing pressure from south of that west pier to the end of the allowable fishing access (the wooden fence).
