FRESHWATER REPORTS

LAKE ALMANOR
Trollers Score Quality Trout
Chester - Lake level increased fractionally since last week ’ s report . We received a small amount of precip this past week and have nothing in our forecast for the next seven days . Morning temps are in the high twenties and daytime highs are reaching into the fifties , we are expecting another week of the same . Water temps are in the high forties ( 47.5 today ). Both USFS public ramps remain closed , hazardous trees around Canyon Dam have been removed and I have not seen any activity at the ramp in the past week . Plumas Pines is still allowing launching at their facility . I went out fishing today , starting along the East shore by the dam , we picked up a few fish slow trolling gulps and crawlers . We pulled up gear , went to Dorado and picked up two fish before we headed to the A-frame where we caught a couple more . There was bait and fish in all three areas we were just covering water searching for concentrations of fish . All of the fish we hooked were between fifteen-twenty feet deep on the wire in water between 30-40 ’. The fish we caught were in great shape and hard fighting . Shore fishing has slowed at the branch and picked up in the coves . As water temps continue to drop and we get some weather the cove fishing will only get better . Access is the issue ; you have to park in wide spots along 89 and walk in . There are no changes to road conditions ; there is no estimated opening date for highway 70 in the canyon . As a side note I fished Eagle Lake
with friends yesterday , we managed to land a dozen fish . The fish we caught were in great shape with a few over four pounds . We caught the majority of our fish on Jay Fair trolling flies in the top ten feet of the water column . The road was a little slick as you crest the hill on State Route 1 and we were able to launch my boat without issue .
