Eagle Lake Fish Report

Eagle Lake - Susanville, CA (Lassen County)

by Nor Cal Fish Reports

Trout are now moving closer to shore and into the shallows.  I have been knocking them dead trolling at 18 to 21 ft deep with Sure Catch large double jointed Red-Dog lures trolled at 2.2 to 2.4 & up to 2.7mph south of Miners Pt (Frank Morgan Summit on our map) in 40 to 54 ft of water. (If you don't have a Red Dog try a #2 brass/florescent orange needle fish). For decades, we have continually caught fish all over the water column this late in the season.  For lead core trollers our best number of colors has been 3- 4 to the water (#18) & even up to 5.  4 colors has been the best.  Now that the water temps are in the mid to high 40's, a good number of trout are moving within reach of shore anglers. Power Bait  has worked well and best colors can vary but garlic flavor in a pale yellow is probably a good one to start with (the shrimp plankton are similar color). Flourescent orange (adult shrimp & scuds) or rainbow are good and green has been a good color this year. Red has had its moments.  www.eaglelakefishing.net
