Almanor (fresh water lake)
Updated 2014-07-16 23:00:32

Generally the bite has been soft. There are a lot of boats, skiers, and tubers dominating the lake. Best bait bite is during the evening as hex larva rise and mayfly's lift off, and the boat traffic is gone. Crickets and mealworms are getting some quality fish right up till dark from Goose Island to Rocky Point.

Trollers and bait anglers have been pounding areas known to have strong spring flows. Big Springs, A-Frame, Rec. 1, Rec. 2, and south of the Hamilton Branch.
Warming surface temps will push deeper, and into cool spring fed areas. Doug Neal: (530) 258-6732 http://www.almanorfishingadventures.com

Baum Lake (fresh water lake)
Updated 2014-06-25 21:35:09

Baum Lake is fishing best in the AM hours, before the sun is positioned high, and then again near sunset. We don't expect the fishing to change to much over the next few weeks since water conditions on Baum are consistently cold and clear. Perfect. It definitely doesn't suck that there's a fish hatchery right there either. Yeah, fish are introduced into Baum regularly. The Fly Shop (530) 222-3555

Frenchman (fresh water lake)
Updated 2014-07-16 23:07:31

The fishing continues to be good at Frenchman Lake.
The warmer weather we have been having lately has made the fish go deeper.  Try floating nightcrawlers off the bottom.  Powerbait - rainbow, chartreause or sping green, has also been working very well. Bank fishing has been good at the dam as well as at Spring Creek.Wiggin’s Outpost  (530) 993-4683

Hat Creek (fresh water river)
Updated 2014-06-25 21:37:29

Golden stones are on the menu this week. Expect to find ovipositing adults near sunset. A great way to fish Hat this week is with a big yellow Stimulator suspending a #18 black Micro Mayfly.

Smaller, darker dry flies can work in the early AM hours.

Pit River (fresh water river)
Updated 2014-06-25 21:37:54

Fishing reports continue to be good to great! The more water you cover, the more fish you will find. Anglers are not likely to find rainbows stacked in any one spot. Seems like you'll get one or two in a spot, then move to find more. Best bite has been late morning through the afternoon! Good flies are #16-14 P.T. Nymphs, #14 Black Micro Mayflies. Try some bigger stonefly patterns like Mercer's Poxy Back Dark Stone, or the good 'ol stand-by "Pat's Rubber Legs". The Fly Shop (530) 222-3555
