High lake levels for this time of year means more options for shore fishing access. Try around the dam, campgrounds or back in the little truckee or sagehen creek arms of the lake. The boat ramp here is still open and boat traffic remains very light. With the good weather this fall, the trolling at stampede has been some of the best of the year for those targeting trout! Top lining around the island or L.T. Arm of the lake has been producing consistent action throughout the day or boat anglers can increase there troll speed and stay tight to shore to target brown trout. Jigging for mackinaw around the dam is also a good option, especially for boats with a good fish finder so they can target these large predators with more precision.

LAKE LEVEL: 90% of Cap

Lures: large spoons, kastmasters, rapalas, crawdad lure or soft plastics Bait: night crawlers with marshmallows , powerbait in chartreuse or rainbow, salmon eggs on a bobber Trolling: flashers with a worm, rapalas, apex, lyman plugs, shallow glass spinners Jigs: p-line laser minnows, buzz bombs, crippled herrings
