Almanor (fresh water lake)
Updated 2014-12-17 16:45:03

Ramps at Canyon Dam, USFS at Almanor, and Rec. 1 and 2 ramps are operational. Fishing pressure has been non existent due to the powerful storms that blasted through. Lake levels are noticeably up. Winter fishing can be good at Almanor I have caught some of the biggest browns and rainbows during winter. Dress warmly, morning temps have been in the low 30s.  Doug Neal: (530) 258-6732 http://www.almanorfishingadventures.com

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

Eagle Lake (fresh water lake)
Updated 2014-12-17 16:47:31

Shore fishing, fly fishing, trolling, jig fishing & bait fishing are all doing good.  Fly fishing from a float tube or boat is producing steady action. The shallower the rock piles, the bigger the fish have been.  Average of 19 inches but there are trout 21 to 23 inches long. A minnow imitation or a brown leech are dependable for double digit catches.  Trollers have been doing great.  Flourescent orange lures, trolling flies & Rapala's (gold, silver & rainbow holding their own) rule over the depths but brown leech and tui chub minnow trolling flies are doing well also.

 

The trout are concentrated in the south basin and pretty much everywhere.   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
