So we have nice weather, rising water temps (now in the mid to high 50's) and a pretty good start to the aquatic bug hatch season. The bugs make up an important part of the food supply for the fish here at Almanor, and when they start coming off, you better believe the fish know it. The bug hatches tend to concentrate large numbers of fish which translates into some pretty exciting fishing for us. Recent trips have seen us hooking more than 20 fish per outing. By the way, this is just getting started and will keep on rolling right on into summer.
If you have been waiting for some nice weather to get your spring fishing fix look no further. There are a few open days in the next two weeks but once they are gone they are gone. Contact us today to lock down your spot by visiting www.bigdaddyfishing.com/reservations.html or call (530) 370-1001
So what is the outlook for the near future? Look for the spring fishing to continue as we are, in some respects, three weeks to nearly a month behind with conditions. Water temps are cool still in the low to mid 40's depending on where you are in the lake. Good run-off of the surrounding snow in the watershed has really just begun, Hamilton Branch is flowing at a good clip and the super ditch in Chester has just started flowing. The lake is on the rise, and the good supply of water should keep the fish happy for the whole season. Interested in getting out and hunting some of these trophies? There are some open dates the next few weeks, contact us as soon as possible to lock down your date.
