Almanor Fishing Report
There has been little change since last week’s report. Water level is up a half foot, water temps remain 36-38 degrees and the predicted storms this past week didn’t materialize as advertised. The positive news is we have received more precip for the current weather year than we have for each of the past two years annual totals. We will see spring like conditions for at least the next seven days with cold morning’s and daytime highs reaching into the low 40’s.
The USFS has plowed both the Canyon Dam boat ramp and the over flow parking lot, there were eight or ten vehicles there today, half with trailers. As is typical for this time of year fishing pressure is concentrated to the south end of the lake. Shore fishermen are picking up some quality fish around the dam using crawlers and power bait. Trollers are targeting fish in water 30-50’ deep, slow trolling plastics and crawlers at one mile an hour will catch fish. Find bait to find fish.
