From what I know (have never been) it can be a great lake and it has huge potential but the fishing can be extremely tough overall.  Not sure what type of info you're looking for.

I'm looking for any info on lures, equipment, techniques, and areas that might come into play in the early spring and summer months.

I've seen the lake while driving over it, the water looks super clear. I'm guessing finesse techniques are important.

Early Spring through Summer I would definitely have topwater on...  Spook, wakebait, punker.  I'd also have a ripbait ready, a jig, a dropshot, a tube, senko and a darthead.  I would feel ready with that stuff.  Possibly a swimbait as well for the Spring, but once it got into summer temps I would mostly have something on top.

The biggest thing for whiskeytown is to use light line.  6 to 8 lbs test would be wise.  It is a very clear lake and stays fairly cool throughout the year.  I have been in 25 feet of water and could see the bottom clearly.  I agree with Dtack when choosing baits.  The one other thing I will add is that you can flip and pitch along the whiskey creek arm.  There are a lot of lay-down logs and the Largemouth bass will hide up in them.  There are giant bass on this lake.  I know recently a 10+ lbs spot was caught near the oak bottom marina.  Good luck.

The first rule about Whiskeytown is you don't talk about Whiskeytown.
