It has been all about the big Rainbows here at Almanor with a few Browns and Salmon on the menu as well. These brutes are cruising the waters of the lake and taking full advantage of Almanor's "food factory", the aquatic insects. Hatches are taking place at various locations around the lake including the east and west shores as well as up north, and tend to draw in actively feeding fish. Because the bugs come from the bottom of the lake and rise to the surface, fish can be found at all depths looking to feed. In recent trips we have been catching fish at a variety of locations from the surface to the bottom and just about every level in between. These fish have a special kind of attitude as they gorge themselves on the available hatches. Big runs, spectacular jumps, big bends in the light tackle rods. This is some exciting spring fishing. The lake is full and continues to see a good amount of cool fresh water rolling down the tributaries. Look for the solid fishing to continue as we move into summer with even more big hatches fueling these beautiful fish. Not many days left available this month, to ensure your chance at getting your dates on the boat, we recommend contacting us as soon as possible to lock down your reservation.
