Fishing is really starting to pick up at Frenchman's Reservoir

Frenchman Reservoir - Portola, CA (Plumas County)

by Reno Fly Fishing Outfitters

This has been a tough year so far at Frenchman's. Low water has had a lot to do with a slower than average year. Spots where we were fishing last year are dry now. The anglers and the fish have had to find new water to fish and hang out respectively. The good news is the fishing is really starting to pick up. Cooler water and shorter days have the fish starting to get active already. Some really nice fish have been caught lately and the size seems to be above average. Sheep Creek Specials or other Snail patterns fished on an intermediate or sink tip line has been doing well. Fishing Nymphs and Midges under an indicator is always a good way to fish at Frenchman's. Leech patterns fished on a faster sinking line are also worth a try. It looks as if we are going to have some pretty good fishing this fall it Frenchman's.
