The Fishing Report
After the getting rain and more winter weather the Trout are in the top few feet and close to shore. Still Night Crawlers, PowerBait and Eggs are doing best. Moving around the shore line has been the key for shore anglers. Reports of bait fishing the shoreline in the back of the lake have been well. We will be having the Fish Sniffer’s Norcal Trout Anglers Challenge here on April 28th! Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!
Finally getting winter weather! Trout are shallow in the top few feet of water and close to shore, looking for anything being washed in to eat. PowerBait and Eggs, Grubs, and Kastmasters have been working well for fisherman. Thus far we have stocked 1,900lbs this month with many more plants to come. We will see how much the lake will come up with all this rain! Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!
We have stocked 4,600lbs so far in the month of December. Grubs, Rapalas, Power Bait and Eggs have been doing best lately. We got our first $100 tagged fish come in last week, and we added another in the lake to be caught! We have gotten reports of good fishing from the campground in the Carson arm and around the overflow point. Boaters have been doing very well the past week hitting up the back of the lake.

Even more Catfish are being brought in from the Dock and Dam area, anchovies are still working great! Trolling broken back Rapalas at about 10-12ft deep is bringing in trout for some anglers. If trolling isn’t doing the trick at the time try going to the back of the lake in Mountain Springs or Jackson Creek and Baitfish the shore line with Garlic scented Power Bait or Power Eggs. Many reports of Trout from shore fisherman at depths of 6-7ft deep. Remember to fish shallow, Trout look up for their food towards the surface. If you go too deep they more than likely wont see it.

Unusually warm and sunny weather for this time of year is making the Trout fishing hit or miss it seems. Some people are doing very well, while others are having a tough time. The back side of the campground in the Carson Arm has been a good spot for shore fisherman in the last week. Reports from bank and fisherman bait fishing from boats are that the Trout are about 6-7ft deep. Best advise for fishing in this crazy weather is don’t stay in one spot, keep moving around until you find where they are. Also, during mid day when its warm, look for shade or fish a little deeper, the Trout are looking to stay cool. Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for more catches and details!

We came up 2ft in the last storm and are currently 24ft from full. Trout are shallow between 5-10ft deep and still relatively close to shore. Fishing off the points has proven best for bank fisherman. Trolling has picked up and as usual the Fire Tiger broken back Rapala is a winner. Lots of Blue Gill are still being caught as well.
