Stampede Reservoir Fishing Report

Stampede Reservoir - Truckee, CA (Sierra County)

by Mountain Hardware & Sports
(530) 587–4844

Lake has come down from 41% to 38% currently and has stabilized at this level as the flow going out has decreased to 30 CFS. Concrete slab for boat launch is still in the water. Launching boats should not be a problem, but soon the concrete pad will be out of the water. Kokanee fishing is in its last stage of the season and you’ll have to work to catch these guys now. Depths for these guys are anywhere from 45-60 feet suspended in schools. Bring your offerings closer to the dodger, about 9 inches or so, as the bite will be anything but an annoyance now. Anything in Pink or combos of Pink, Chartreuse, and Orange have been great in spinner, Squids and micro squids. We have Shasta tackle in stock now in Humdingers, Wiggle Hoochies, Kokanuts, and Flashers. Bite will continue even when the sun is completely on the water just fish a little deeper and with Blues or Purple or combos of these colors! Surface temp is still okay at 72 degrees. Most Kokes are being targeted well outside the LT arm or in spots between the boat launch and the LT, and even back into the Davies Creek Arm. Mack fishing has been good also below the Kokes and around the dam in 50-75 feet. This lake has slowed down for the Kokanee fishing but there are still some nice ones being caught in the 14-16-inch range. May have been a stocking of Cutthroats here recently as some have been pulling out a few big Cutties as of late.
