Eagle Lake Fish Report

Eagle Lake - Susanville, CA (Lassen County)


by Nor Cal Fish Reports
9-22-2010

This report is a repeat of last week's.  The fishing is very good.  We are limiting daily with nice fish averaging 2.5lbs.  We are also averaging one to two 3lb fish per outing so the bigger fish are starting to show. 

Find minnows and you will find fish.  I've been concentrating my efforts on the west side of the lake between Pelican Pt. and Shrimp Island, where we are finding fish feeding on schools of minnows.  I've gotten reports from successful anglers, also fishing minnow schools, on the east side of the lake off Camp Ronald McDonald, at the south end off Christie Campground, and inside Spalding Bay behind Pelican Pt.  Fish are being caught in all of these areas.  With the abundant minnow schools, the bite can and will last well into late morning and early afternoon.

We are fishing water 8-10 feet deep with  pumpkin seed grubs, and Sep's amber, watermelon, or brown grubs.  We are trolling them at 5 feet deep over an uneven bottom (structure). I usually fish this type of water even when minnows are not prevalent.  With Tui Chub minnow schools holding in the same areas, this makes your chances of catching fish that much better.  Surface water temperature is now 62.  It will continue to decline and more and more Eagle Lake Trout will move northward into shallower water.


Bobber Fishing: Same story as trolling, find minnows and you'll catch fish bobber fishing.  The Youth Camp is loaded with minnows and a good bet for bobber fishing.  Anchor up in 12-18 feet of water and set your threaded night crawler at 7-10 feet deep.

Darrah Springs Hatchery is planning to stock the remainder of this year's bonus fish on September 21 at Rocky Point.  (The first half of this year's bonus fish were planted in May of this year, prior to the opener.)  As of this week the fish are averaging 2.8 pounds each.  These bonus fish are made possible with the funds generated during the Project Eagle Lake Trout Fundraisers that take place in the community of Spalding each year on the Forth of July and Labor Day Weekends.  tnoxon@gmail.com www.fishtraveler.com;  (530) 825-3454
