Almanor Lake Fish Report

Lake Almanor - CA (Plumas County)


by Nor Cal Fish Reports

Surface temps range from 46.5 to 47.5 degrees.

Classic fall weather has made for some great fishing here at Lake Almanor. Water clarity has also improved a little and is now about 6 to 7' clarity, thus the bite has really picked up this past week, and fishing pressure, as expected this time of year, has been light.

A big increase in rainbow trout action has been the most noticeable.

All last month all we could get were smaller Bows, now the bigger fish are on the prowl all over the lake.

Most boat are trolling  lures like, Needlefish in silver,  or RGSS, ( Red and Gold Speedy Shiners), and the increasingly popular, "Seps Pro Secret" (SPS) also in Red and Gold, rigged, or lead core, down 6ft. early morning, and dropping down to 18 ft. later when the sun gets high.

Most of the Rainbows have been 18 to 20" and have really been hitting hard and full of fight, with a few fish going over 3 lbs. from time to time. All these lures have a application of Pro-Cures "Trophy Trout" applied with a small basting brush. These combinations of lures with this scent will have you catching fish here.

Brown Trout are everywhere, some small, and some really big fish have been caught while trolling for the Rainbows.

We boated 2 bucks yesterday that were 25" and weighted around 5 lbs. trolling from Rec.Area #2 along the Almanor Peninsula south, and back. Bigger fish are around as well, some over 14 lbs. What a kick on ultra light tackle.

The Browns are in the full spawn cycle, Hens need to be released, try not to net them if you get hooked up.

Bank Fishermen are working the Hamilton Branch for Rainbows floating crawlers under bobbers, with good results..These fish want meat.

Geritol Cove at Canyon Dam is good one day and off the next, hit it on the right day and its all good. The fish we are catching are fat, they have been feeding well on smelt. They are very strong and have been putting up some good fights, combined with some cool, but sunny days we are liking it!

Water levels are still very good, but are coming down watch for hazards

Both Canyon Dam, and the USFS ramps are open, plenty of parking.

Its a good time to fish Almanor, If you're planning a trip here, just keep a eye on the weather, It could be changing soon. Doug Neal (530) 258-6732 http://www.almanorfishingadventure.com
