Almanor Fishing Report

Almanor Fishing Report
Lake Almanor received another (much-needed) dose of rain this weekend, every little bit helps. Lake level has begun dropping, the first time in months. Water temperature continues to hover around the sixty-degree mark and visibility ranges between 7-14’. We will start to see a warmup later this week with daytime highs reaching into the high eighties.
The bite remains inconsistent for trollers as we wait for the weather and water temperatures to stabilize. Trout are scattered and I have heard reports of fish caught on the East Shore, West shore off Rocky Point, Rec I to the A-Frame and off Red Bank. I still have not seen any signs of the hex hatch on Almanor we are still a week or two away. Trollers need to pick your preferred presentation and cover ground, start at the popular haunts, and stay on fish when you find them.
Bass fishermen continue to catch quality fish when weather/winds permit. Shore fishermen are targeting their efforts around Hamilton Branch. We are beginning to see fly fishermen along the west shore in the evening in search of hex activity. Butt Lake should see hatches beginning this week.
You can expect traffic delays when traveling to Plumas County and please call ahead for lodging, dining, and camping reservations.
