Few this past week have been fishing Shaver Lake due to very cold weather. Friday was 31 degrees at noon and Saturday was 36 degrees at 1130 am. By Saturday 11 boats were on the lake with sunny conditions. Dick Nichols of Dick's Fishing Charters talked to four trollers in two boats that had been among the 11 boats on the lake Saturday. In one boat were Fresnan's John Means and Tucker Salles. The other boat carried Means brother in law John Salles and Mike Savage both from Fresno. Both boats caught and released over 20 rainbows each. All were using Trout Busters with a tip of Crawler. Means boat was fishing Boy Scout Cove at 15 to 30 feet down and John Salles boat was fishing Black Rock and Eagle Point at 16 feet down. They all said although it was cold, it did not matter as fishing was pretty steady. Both boats were in by 1130 AM. They all reported seeing others out trolling doing well too. Nichols says that it is worth the trip as everybody is reporting good action. the weather is to remain mostly sunny but midweek temperatures will be a high in the upper 20's.
Bank fishermen were out in numbers over the weekend with mostly planter sized rainbows being caught. One group reported 5 fish on their stringer. The dam, Sierra marina and Roads 1 and 2 were the main spots bankies picked. Crawlers or Power Bait was the best bait.
The Shaver Lake Trophy Trout Project has ordered for the Spring a little less than 2,000 high bred rainbow's from Nebraska for a Spring planting. Planting chairman and SLTTP treasurer Bob Bernier reported that the SLTTP kicked in about $7,000.00 more than normal for the near pure rainbows. He asks that anyone wanting to make a donation to the SLTTP to help offset the cost of these high bred trout can send a check made out to the SLTTP to PO Box 908, Shaver Lake, Ca. 93664. A letter of thanks and the SLTTP's non-profit, tax deductable number will be sent to all donors.
