Lake Almanor - CA (Plumas County)

Good News Bad News

by Big Daddy

First the bad news: Unfortunately, the receding water level has finally caught up to us. Due to the extremely low water level currently at Eagle Lake BDGS will not be offering the usual fall fly-trolling and fly-fishing trips this year. The water is just simply too low to safely launch the boat and there is uncertainty as to how soon the dock at the low water ramp will remain in. Originally it was scheduled to be pulled 10/19/22, however the USFS is now taking a wait and see approach so there are no guarantees. 
    Now for the Good News: Almanor is fishing fantastic. Many of the people who had previously booked trips at Eagle simply opted to move their trips to Almanor, while others decided to wait for the future at Eagle. That means we have more dates open for you to take advantage of the great fall fishing on Lake Almanor. 
     For more information and to check availability for October and November dates on Lake Almanor, please visit the Reservation Page or call us at (530)370-1001

          We will miss Eagle this year in hopes of retuning to our normally scheduled trips in fall of 2023.

Currently Fishing Lake Almanor

    Cool mornings and warm afternoons with very little wind are making for some extremely favorable fishing conditions. The days are getting shorter, and the water temperatures are dropping, the fish of Lake Almanor are making preparations for winter. Fall is a great time to head out in search of quality Browns Rainbows and even some Salmon. We are currently seeing solid action on a mix of all three and have some days available. Contact us today through the Reservation Page or call us at (530)370-1001to reserve your dates.

New Lodging Options Available At Almanor

     The good people at Plumas Pines Resort on the west shore of Lake Almanor have decided to make lodging available this fall through the winter and offer discounts to fishermen.  During the month of November, they will have 3 cabins, 4 double rooms and Suite 11 available. The cabins will close down December 1 leaving the 4 rooms and the suite open until April 27th.
