The fall fishing is underway at Lake Almanor featuring beautiful crisp mornings followed by warm afternoons and loaded with fantastic Trophy Trout action. We are currently seeing a mixed bag of fish featuring big thick Rainbows, some hot Kings Salmon and a few bruiser Browns. It is strictly a bait affair on the lake right now as the fish chase the schools of pond smelt up and down the east shore as well as many areas along the peninsula. Once these trout and salmon have the bait balled up they are aggressively going on the chomp. We have seen single, double, triple and even quad hookups that make for exciting action at the back of the boat. The size of these fish have been running from 2 to over 6 pounds and are providing outstanding battles on our light tackle, rods doubled over and lots of line going out! We have just a few days left available this month if you are looking to get in on the action.
On the near horizon we will begin running Eagle Lake charters early in October and will be focusing on both Almanor and Eagle for the months of October and November. Two of Northeastern California's top Trophy Trout destinations, if you have never experienced them this time of year, contact us today to lock down your dates.
It is early September and Fall is in the air. Mornings have a little cooler feel to them as we are shooting across the lake but the afternoons have been warm and sunny. Water temp is down just a bit at basically 70 degrees and the fish are on the bite! Every year, as this little change in the weather begins to happen, the fish start to think about getting ready for winter and that means strapping on the feed bags, and chewing on some pond smelt. We have been seeing a mix of Rainbows and King Salmon running from 2 to over 6 pounds, with limit to near limit numbers depending on the size of the party and some fantastic action. In recent days, it honestly has been hard to keep rods in the water the first few hours of the morning, and while the bite may slow a bit as the day goes on, the big fish still keep slamming our baits. (the biggest fish of the day yesterday was our last one) If you are looking to get in on some fantastic light tackle action, now would be a good choice.
Also on the near horizon is the Fall season at Eagle Lake. October and November are prime months to experience Eagle Lake at it's best. The calendar is starting to fill up, so book now to secure your dates to chase the Eagle Lake Rainbows.
