Collins Lake Fishing Report

Collins Lake - Browns Valley, CA (Yuba County)

by Collins Lake Staff

Our Fall Trout Planting Program will begin in Mid October!! Between mid October and the end of November we will gain over 7,000 lbs. of trout.

Three trout plants will include trophy sized trout along with the catchable ones. Since our lake is a bit lower than last year we are waiting for just the right time to plant when the water is cold enough, this is why mid Oct. is our projection!!

The last two plants are part of our Net Pen Project and these trout will be “raised” over the winter and into the spring in the pens and when they are released in the spring they will average two to three pounds each. This project is in addition to our spectacular Spring Trout Planting Program.

Roy & Nancy Adams hooked a big 5 lb. Catfish on shrimp bait off the boat dock. Kathy Weikum from Oroville caught a 3 lb. 12 oz. Catfish also off the rental dock using worms.

Evan & his friend brought in a 1 lb. 4 oz. Bass and a 1 lb. 4 oz. Crappie which they caught from shore down by the dam using worms.
