Opening Day Report

Eagle Lake - Susanville, CA (Lassen County)

by Valerie Aubrey

Good morning from Eagle Lake! Woohoo!! Great fishing! Had to dodge some surface algae on the west side this morning but it was doable! Trout for us (kayaks, trolling) we’re 2-7 ft deep. Early I did have action on trolling flies…cinnamon leech & flo orange in 2 to 6ft of water but they were already starting to move out by sun up. Soooo… 23-45ft of water but still high…4-7’. 5 outta 6 by 7am & done. When I moved out to deeper water I put on my favorite spoon the Red/Gold 1/4oz Thomas Buoyant & 45 seconds later… fish on! 4 on Tommy B. Sis, Merry Jo Rembold got em on rainbow trout flicker shad (2”) and red/gold. Same depths. Surface temps showing between 57.4 and 59.2F from 56F on Tuesday. All sorts of lures were working. Tomorrow is another day!!!
