After setting the four rods it wasn ’ t five minutes and we accomplished that and it was a nice fish .” “ He caught several really nice rainbows and to top off the day , he landed a six and a half pound king salmon that he reeled in all by himself , I just happened to have a hat onboard that is now his .” “ DJ , Don , and Fred also caught many nice fish ; it was a quality kind of day for a great group ,” he said . “ They landed 19 rainbows and a king salmon by 11:30 a . m . All but three of the rainbows ranged from 2-1 / 2 to 3 pounds .” “ The rainbows hit my homemade big spoons at 55 to 75 feet deep , while the big king hit my spoon at 60 feet deep ,” he noted . “ I trolled back and forth in Middle Bay for all of the fish .” Don Pedro is holding 1,027,820 acre feet of water , 51 percent of capacity and 74 percent of average .

EAGLE LAKE
Hit or Miss Troll Bite
Susanville - Fishing is hit and miss right now . The Eagle Lake Trout are scattered and locations and depths of the fish are changing daily . We are catching them trolling from 5 to 25 feet with down riggers and lead core .

The stretch on the east side between the Gallatin Marina and Eagle ’ s Nest is the same , good one

Although I haven ’ t tried it recently , the stretch between Merrill and Christie Campgrounds at the lake ’ s southern end should start producing fish . Fish in 20-40 feet of water at the depths mentioned above . ( Same Baits ) Water temperature on the surface is still 67 degrees . We need the night time temperatures to consistently drop into the low 30 ’ s for the water to cool down . This will cause the fish to start bunching up and start
