Almanor Lake Fish Report

Lake Almanor - CA (Plumas County)

by Nor Cal Fish Reports


We had a few nice fish this week, nice being over 4 pounds and up, mostly browns. Browns are spawning and bigger fish are holding in areas longer until this event wraps up in mid December. When wind is light drifting across spawning areas working jigs is effective. We have been staying close to Rec. 2 simply because of the wind that can pick up quickly. However if you can get over to the east shore, Lake Cove has been providing great trolling. It appears  most of the larger concentrations of big rainbows are along the east shore. Smelt are here for the plankton, drawing attention of big fish looking to feed.

Surface temps continue to drop, currently hovering around 49 degrees. Check conditions before making the trek. Pick your spots carefully. Safety First.
