This week we planted 2,400 pounds of Mt. Lassen Rainbow Trout. 1,200 lbs. at South Shore, 600 lbs. at North Shore and 600 lbs. at the pond!
Thanksgiving Week was an incredible
week for fishing out at Lake Camanche! Water temperatures have dropped to about 55 degrees so trout are starting to feed closer to the surface! Bank anglers are finding
powerbaits and eggs to be the most effective baits. On Thanksgiving day I personally did some bank fishing using
powerbait & nightcrawlers which really seemed to do the trick! Boat anglers experienced the best bite by top-trolling with grubs or lures.
This week we had many anglers
come into our Marina stores to show off their catches! On the top right is a photo of local fishermen Greg Maples
who reeled in this 7.51 lb.trout by top trolling near the dam on Saturday November 30, 2013. Below him is a
photo of Wayne Myricil, a resident of Acampo, CA who caught this awesome stringer of trout using powerbait.
Wayne reeled these trout in in the North Shore Day Use Area on Friday November 29,2013.
Seventeen year-old local Beau Courtroul , pictured at right, reeled in the biggest fish that we saw last week! Beau caught this 8.56 lb. trout using Powerbait at the Trout Pond on Sunday December 1, 2013. Beau was fishing with his friend Brett Barber who also reeled in a nice sized fish.
Robbie Dunham, pictured below of Galt, CA holds up a stringer of trout caught on the North Shore Buoy Line using grubs. Robbie's biggest fish
weighed in at 4.87 lbs.
