I have done some pretty extensive research on it though. It does have sacramento perch, channel cats, largemouths and carpkind. Probably a few other stray species yet to be determined.
There is good road access near the northern (dam) end. However, some of the best fishing is supposed to be near the southern (inlet) end. The only problem for tubers (like me) is that the inlet end is supposed to be lots of yucky mud.
The lake was hit hard by the drought, but is evidently deep enough that a good fish population survived and is making a rebound with the higher water the past two years. Plain old crawlers work for the perch as well as the other species.
I caught quite a few Sacramento perch while living in California on small lures designed for crappies...tubes and twisters. They get to be 4-5 pounds and are both good fighters and good eating. I have been anxious to see how big the perch in Pruess are, and how they respond to some of my lures.
The distance down there pretty much makes that an expensive proposition (gas cost) for a day trip. I had planned to make a stop at DMAD, in Delta, for another exploratory, and then continue to Pruess the next morning. There are also some trout creeks across the Nevada border nearby, in the mountains. Also lots of history and a couple of mining museums in the area. Might make for a nice two or three day excursion.
There is lots of other stuff to do, But gas up at delta, you can get gas in baker and at the border inn but it is $.10-.15 more per gallon. Take lots and lots of water, it is hot and dry out there and you can easily become exhausted (i know from experience)
The drive is 90 minutes from delta... if you average 75-80MPH, it is long and boring, the most exciting thing is seeing the sevier lake bed, man that would be awesome to see the masive lake full of water, there are supposed to be wild horses out there, but i have yet to see them. watch out for cops on the road they drive white trucks, you wont know they are cops till its to late.
If i get to fish the lake i will post it up, i have a feeling i may get to, the boss came to me and said "next time you go to boulder take your fishing pole we are going to fish some of the lakes" to which i replied, "sounds good, you should come to baker with me and we can chase the sacramento perch" he sounded like he liked the idea
