The spring bite continues to roll on here at Lake Almanor. We continue to see some pretty fantastic fishing for all three of the major species here in the lake, Browns, Bows and King Salmon. The weather has continued to be a little up and down but the grey skies cant dampen peoples spirits when they set out to strike "Almanor Gold". Recent charters have seen Browns from 2.5 to 8 pounds and some even larger, Bows tipping the scales to 6 pounds and a few of the Kings running 3 to just over 5 pounds. These are quality fish, trophy trout for sure, with the rod bending, drag screaming attitudes to match.

So what is the outlook for the near future? Look for the spring fishing to continue as we are, in some respects, three weeks to nearly a month behind with conditions. Water temps are cool still in the low to mid 40's depending on where you are in the lake. Good run-off of the surrounding snow in the watershed has really just begun, Hamilton Branch is flowing at a good clip and the super ditch in Chester has just started flowing. The lake is on the rise, and the good supply of water should keep the fish happy for the whole season.  Interested in getting out and hunting some of these trophies? There are some open dates the next few weeks, contact us as soon as possible to lock down your date.
