Horseshoe Lake Report

Horseshoe Lake - Trinity County, CA (Lassen County)

by East Bay Regional Park District


The water is coming up every day, so the fish habitat is changing constantly while the Alameda County Water District is pumping in water. The lake came up over two feet in the last two weeks!

We received 750 pounds of rainbow trout on December 7, and fishing has been really good with the cooler weather! Fishing has been good from the Peninsula and in Kiosk Cove.


A few catfish are still being caught.


Quite a few trout are still being caught by both boaters and shore fishermen, despite our last scheduled trout plant being accidentally dropped off at another lake. Please remember that the daily catch limit is five trout per angler.


Bass bite has been fairly slow. Not too many anglers have reported catches.
