It is hard to believe we are squarely in the middle of the summer season here at the lake, this year has just flown by. The fishing here at Almanor has remained quite good, mainly due to the outstanding high water level. (the lake is basically full) Even with the surface temps high (in the mid 70's), the fish have plenty of cooler water at deeper depths as well as plenty of food with massive insect hatches taking place the last couple of weeks. These hatches will serve to concentrate fish in to the areas with the most activity and put them on the chew. There are also plenty of pond smelt starting to show around the lake but almost all the fish we have been catching have been bug eaters. Our catch has been mainly made up of Rainbows to over 6 lbs with a few King Salmon and an occasional Brown, and when the Brown hooks up its generally a pretty good one. The water levels are expected to stay high for an extended period which will only continue the fantastic summer bite here at the lake. 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.
Update on the second annual Lake Almanor Veterans Fishing Day that was held June 24th. The event was fantastic, a huge success due to a great group of volunteers who came together to make it happen. Thanks to everyone who helped out. Below you will see a picture of the back of this year's shirts "home of the free because of the brave" (Thank you Mike Daly for covering the cost of the shirts) We had good weather great fishing and an outstanding gathering afterwards at the Chester Elks hall. It is an honor and a pleasure to participate in this event. The annual date has now been set for events in the future as the Sunday following Fathers Day 6/23/19. If you would like to participate in upcoming events please contact me.
