Spring time is rolling on here at Lake Almanor, and if April showers bring May flowers then we are going to have a bunch next month. Currently we are catching multiple species around the lake including Browns to 7.5 pounds, Bows to 5.5 pounds, Kings Salmon to 3.2 pounds, and even some pretty nice Smallmouth Bass up to 4 pounds. Many areas of the lake are holding fish and in order to stay on them we are covering a bunch of water, as the fish cruise the lake in search of food. The water temps are still cool mainly in the mid 40's and subject to change as we have a storm moving in here to Northern California. Cool temps mean fish are shallow, and this is the time of year to intercept some fantastic fish on shallow gear. It is simply amazing how hard these fish crush the plugs. Look for this shallow spring bite to continue and at some point I'm sure we will get back to more traditional spring time pattern and warming temps. Want to get in on this Trophy Trout action? There are a few days available in the upcoming weeks but not many, contact us today and book your fishing adventure.
