Nothing easy at Donner

Donner Lake - Truckee, CA (Nevada County)

Lake is at 65% capacity. Lake is fishing better for some with the most recent plant of trout a couple of weeks ago! Throw everything you have at the trout now, ie: powerbait, nightcrawlers, and salmon eggs and combinations of these baits, spoons and spinners of different varieties. By casting closer and then working your way out a little further one can detect what depth the trout are cruising and having patience is key to success now. Kokanee fishing has remained consistent, though small fish, around the south side west end of the lake and the hump between China Cove and Loch Leven lodge in 45-80 feet of water. Orange has been the go to color here but don't discount trying others as you progress to deeper depths and other areas of the lake. (530) 587-4844
