Almanor (fresh water lake)
Updated 2014-04-09 19:00:34

Fish are rising on the east side and anglers are catching a mix of rainbows, browns and salmon – all of average size. While the east shore has been kicking out nice fish, the Rec 1 area to A-Frame also is worth exploring.  Doug Neal: (530) 258-6732 http://www.almanorfishingadventures.com

Davis (fresh water lake)
Updated 2014-04-09 19:01:48

Eagle Lake (fresh water lake)
Updated 2013-12-19 09:04:09

Fishing continues to be excellent.  The south basin survived the below zero temps and has plenty of open water for now.  High temps around freezing, low temps still close to zero. Water temp is between 39 and 41.5 degrees.  Courtesy dock has been out of the water for about 9 days.  The ramp has snow/ice nearly to the edge of the water.  Bring chains just in case if you choose to launch.  Waders/hip boots are advised for launching. 

 

The bite is just as good as it has been.  Catching and releasing large numbers of fiesty fat trout on several different patterns of flies.  Brown size 10 0X wooly bugger gets sucked up within minutes (sometimes seconds) of hitting the water.  Basically hitting double digits in a short time.

Sacramento River (Redding) (fresh water river)
Updated 2014-04-02 21:47:55

Releases out of Keswick Reservoir are around 2,473 CFS as of this writing. Good fishing continue to be the story on this river. These cloudy, wet days have been good for finding rainbows eating off the surface. Good hatches of Pink Alberts, which looks like a Pale Morning Dun, have kept the fish busy from late morning through 3:30 PM. Seems like the bite dies off a little after 3:30 PM. Salmon flies are definitely on the menu in nymph form. Right now is a good time to come fish this river.The Fly Shop (530) 222-3555
