Boat traffic is heavy, which means anglers should only try fishing in the mornings and evenings at Donner Lake. Jigging for macks is still popular here. Anglers should jig for macks in the middle of the lake or by the China Cove area. Anglers focusing on Kokanee should try fishing with flashers and pink hoochies. Shore anglers fishing for rainbow trout should fish with powerbait and worms between Loch Leven Lodge and the boat ramp. Donner Lake is currently at 97% capacity.
