Lake Camanche hasn't seen much sunshine since the heavy storms of last week but at lease the fishing has been great!

Lake Camanche is currently at 79% of capacity and the water level continues to rise.

The California Dept. of Water Resources is estimating that Lake Camanche is receiving 5,123 cubic feet per second of water flowing from Pardee and releasing 4, 960 CFS.

Friday 1/13/17 Mt. Lassen release 3,000 lbs. of trout with 1,000 lbs. planted to the pond and 1,000 lbs. to both shores at the boat ramps. Another release of 1,200 lbs. is expected this week before the weekend. Watch our FB page for the plant update.

"Last Fishing Trip for a While...

So me and Kim Dunham decided that Lake Camanche would be the place to Go... After get some inside on the water clarity, We launched at 6:30... It was a bit chilly... So started up the Ole Buddy Heater. First bottle lasted about 1 hr. The Second Bottle about 20 mins. So bundle up Honey it's going to be Fun. First 6 Fish came pretty quick, then about a 2 hr later for the last 4. So we ended the Day with 2 Limits. No Big Fish today. Who cares, its always fun watching the rod gent bent over... Lol

Two things:

1st I want to Thank Dick Nettell for some great info.

2nd I want to Thank Dennis Wojdac for my brand new Koke Machine Limit Stick...

It was Great to see and Talk with James Brock and meeting his fishing partner (Dave Eirsteadt) today.

Speedy Shiners - Watermelon, Gold, and Red/Gold worked for us. Top 5' - 2.4 to 2.7 GPS Big Hat Island Area.

Below Kim: She was Bundled up All Day!! BRRRR!!! So Super Proud of her!!! Launch right in the middle of a BASS Tourn. She handled the boat, Perfectly!!!"
