Big Hot Rainbows! The End.
Oh you want some more details? Well here goes, the fishing at Lake Almanor has been pretty fantastic overall with the Bows being the stars of the show. Rainbows from 2.5 all the way up over 8 pounds are putting big bendo on the rods! I'm talking 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, all the way to 29 inch class fish. We are also continuing to see some of the lake's King Salmon, many running around 18 inches and fat and a few Browns as well over the 5 pound mark. As in previous reports, most of our action has been had working the waters north of the tip of the peninsula and Prattville. Lots of aquatic bugs are keeping these fish fat and happy with multiple hatches taking place as the day goes along. New, earlier this week, the Hex flies have started to pop, drawing fish and fly fishermen into areas along the west shore in the evenings. We have been seeing casings as well as dead larvae floating on the surface during the mornings with some fish still tailing on the surface feeding on the easy protein rich food source. It has been an outstanding season here at Lake Almanor and it looks to continue. If you are headed this way and want to get in on this action don't wait until the last minute, contact us today, availability is limited the next few weeks.
