Eagle Lake Fish Report

Eagle Lake - Susanville, CA (Lassen County)

by Nor Cal Fish Reports

Lake closes to fishing after Dec. 31. Low temps closer to high single digits. This will cause frozen fog to form if we don't have a breeze.   I don't recommend launching, however, there are a couple folks managing.  Things aren't going to change much from now till the end of the season Dec 31.  But, watch the weather on NOAA & if you need to, you can always text my cell phone.  My knee is getting better & I will be out on my float tube. 


Shore fishing, fly fishing, trolling, jig fishing & bait fishing are all doing good.  Fly fishing from a float tube or boat is producing so much action that our arms hurt after the first two hours...we just can't stop & it's worth the pain.  I have found it hard to keep track of the numbers after 20 fish per 4 to 5 hours.  For me, the shallower the rock piles, the bigger the fish have been.  However, one angler trolling out off Camp Ronald McD reported very slow action as well as not seeing much on his scope.  As water temps cool down, these trout can seek out deeper, warmer water until it's all the same temperature.  The springs in the depths on the east side can hold nice fish in December & often as deep as 18 to 24 ft deep.  Minnow patterns of just about any kind can get a lot of attention, but florescent orange is always a safe bet.
