Almanor Fishing Report


Jan. 28, 2018

Last week’s winter storms dropped more than a foot of snow, our first significant snow of the season. It appears we will be returning to quiet mild weather for at least the next week, with day time high’s reaching into the mid-fifties. While the snow will hang around our roadways are clear with no travel restrictions.

Water temp continues to hover around the low forties and ice was forming in Geritol Cove this past week. The recent CF&W planters continue to hang out in and around Geritol Cove, these fish are running in the 12-15” size. They are nice healthy fish and eager to play. John Reynolds came over from Fortuna and we caught and released 18 in a couple of hours. We caught a mix of Browns and Rainbows with one mature Brown. We caught our fish on Wiggle Tails, size 12 in both Olive and Red.

The recent storms kept boats off the water as the boat ramp was covered in more than a foot of snow for a couple of days. The parking lot has been cleared, yesterday the North side of the ramp was cleared and useable, the South side still had snow, but it should be clear in a couple of days.
