Clear Calm Days Make For Great Winter Fishing!

Collins Lake - Browns Valley, CA (Yuba County)

With a smile almost as big as the lunker in his grip, Davinci Garibaldi from Palermo showed off this brag worthy 7lb trout he caught using a worm and a marshmallow down by the beach.

Collins Lake will be closed on Christmas Day

After a knockout November we saw a strong first half of December. Fall planting is finished and while we aren’t seeing as many limits these days, the relatively warm weather and calm winds have made for great days to be out on the lake and there’s still some good trophy-sized trout coming in.

Catfish seem to have settled down for winter and although I have heard of some minor bass activity no one has sent in a picture yet. Send us your Collins Lake catch to [email protected] and we may post it here and share it with other publications and postings.

Collins Lake will be closed on Christmas Day – no day use and no boat launch. We will open again the day after Christmas at 7am for normal winter hours.
