Almanor (fresh water lake)
Updated 2014-11-19 20:04:22

Fishing  pressure has been light, however there were several boats scattered around, and the radio reported a few decent fish caught.

Mostly browns with a few rainbows reported.

Fish are present along the east shore from the Dorado to Big Cove. Canyon Dam and the east shore has had the best action. Several browns over 5 pounds and one 7 pound rainbow.

Fast action lures, like #2 Needlefish in Cop Car, or 1/6 oz. Silver Hammer finish, and the red and gold Speedy Shiners often getting attacked.

Smelt are on the east shore because that’s where the plankton is, and that’s where the fish are. Most boats were trolling fast, 2.9 to 3.4

Baum Lake (fresh water lake)
Updated 2014-11-05 15:46:09

Baum has been kicking out fun days of fishing almost daily. Best bite happens early in the day, then again as the sun gets low on the horizon. Take note. We are getting into the best time of the year to fish here. The midge hatches in December can produce awesome fishing! The Fly Shop (530) 222-3555

Davis (fresh water lake)
Updated 2014-11-19 20:04:59

Fishing has been spotty. One day it’s good, the next may be less productive. Best shore fishing is near Fairview using Gulp Power Eggs. Fly fishing has been on the slower side but there has been a good number of 18 to 21 inchers. Best spot is the west side, north of Jenkins Point. Trollers do best between Honker Bay and the Island. Boat launch at Honker is still usable. Snow is expected this weekend so make sure you have a 4WD. Guide Ed Dillard (530) 832-6394

Eagle Lake (fresh water lake)
Updated 2014-11-19 20:05:27

If you aren’t catching and releasing 10 or more quality trout & picking and choosing your limit, something is seriously wrong. Fishing continues to be excellent. The trout are concentrated in the south basin and available all over the lake. Best depth to find fish is 4-6 feet deep. However, when over deeper water they have been scattered and as low as 21-24 feet.  Trout are 17 to 23 inches. www.eaglelakefishing.net

Hat Creek (fresh water river)
Updated 2014-11-12 16:32:41

Small dark colored nymphs in #18-22 are the top bug early in the day. A selection of PMD and BWO duns should be in your fly box. You can get fish to chase after a dun imitation near sunset too. There's almost always at least one curious fish hanging around near sunset. You will find the most consistent fishing/hook-ups near the Power House #2 riffle. Bigger fish can found hunting the flats at sun up and near sun down. River closes to fishing Nov. 15. Lower Hat: Rim Rock Ranch (530) 335-7114; The Fly Shop (530) 222-3555

Sacramento River (Redding) (fresh water river)
Updated 2014-11-19 20:06:02
