Stampede Reservoir Fish Report

Stampede Reservoir - Truckee, CA (Sierra County)

by Mountain Hardware & Sports
(530) 587–4844

Lake is slowly rising at 96% now and the flow going out has increased to 634 CFS! For years, this lake has suffered through drought and with the overabundance of water this year the lake hopes to rebound. With an aggressive stocking of Pilot Peak Strain Cutthroats over the next few years this lake hopefully will produce trophy sized Cutties such as those in Pyramid. For now, those with boats have had great success catching Rainbows and Cutthroats trolling the drop-offs throughout the inlets in depths of 15-35 feet of water. Kokanee action has BEEN CONSISTENT (unless you decided to fish it last weekend when the lake was a madhouse of Recreational boaters, then again it could have been the earthquake) and those having success are pulling in 13-16-inch Kokes suspended at 40-65 feet deeper water. Go light and bright UV colors such as Pinks, Oranges, and Chartreuse in the morning hours then switch to darker colors such as Blues, Purple, and Greens in the late morning. Not much on the Macks here but if you’re targeting them you are sure to have success. THE ONLY WAY TO ACCESS CAMPGROUNDS AND BOAT LAUNCH IS BY TAKING 89 TO HOBART MILLS AND THEN THROUGH RUSSEL VALLEY VIA DOG VALLEY ROAD! ROAD IS GOOD AND BOAT LAUNCH AND CAMPSITES ARE OPEN!
