Collins Lake Fishing Report

Collins Lake - Browns Valley, CA (Yuba County)

by Collins Lake Staff

Our first Fall Trophy Trout Plant arrived yesterday, a total of 1,800 lbs. The load included 25% trophy sized trout and 75% catchable ones. Our lake level is low but now stabilized, the water will no longer be released. All we need is rain to start filling us up again, all the long term forecasts say we should expect a wet winter.

A 5 lb. 8 oz. Bass was caught by Stetson Stokes of Chico. Stetson was trolling a Rapala type lure on the east side just south of the islands.

Noah LaPointe of Auburn was shore fishing near the dam with PowerBait and hooked a 6 lb. 12 oz. Catfish.

Prohbat Palma had a great couple of fishing days, bringing home a limit of Bass on the first day. He fished from a boat near the islands and the biggest one on his stringer was close to three pounds. The next day he caught one Bass and one Catfish on PowerBait.
