Lake Tahoe Fishing Report


April 6, 2012

I am going to be guiding up in the Lake Shasta area. These will be the lakes I will be fishing on most of the time: Shasta Lake, Trinity Lake, Whiskeytown, Eagle lake and Lake Almanor. All of these lakes are killer for catching the big fish. Did you know that Trinity lake has Kings 5 pounds and bigger? How about Shasta for trout, kings and browns, big browns. Be looking for my new web site all about the big move to the best lakes in the north state.

Most of the other lakes have been snowed on so I have no report on them. It looks like we are in for more weather before it gets into spring fishing. I will be hunting for Browns and Big Kings this Spring hope to have you on board. Mack and Kokanee fishing on Donner and Stampede will be between May 15 th and June 15th. All other days will be fishing up in the Shasta lake area.
bulletLAKE TAHOE - The bite just keeps getting better. Get out and troll the Tavern Hole area and you will get your Macks. Stay in 140 feet or less. Some nice Big Mackinaws have been caught on the shelf out in front of the coast guard station.
bulletDONNER LAKE - With some ice and a lot of wind not to much fishing going on. The bite will come on next month I hope. I am taking clients out on Donner from Mid May till June. Book your trip now, the dates are filling up fast.
bulletPlease let the Big Macks GO (fish over 10 pounds). If we don't your KIDS wont have the chance that you have to catch one of these big fish that have been in the lake for 40 years.
bulletSTAMPEDE RESERVOIR - I heard you can get into Stampede . Try jigging late in the day and trolling in the morning using black and white.
bulletDAVIS LAKE - No Report.
bulletSHASTA LAKE - We did get out this last week on Shasta lake. We fished the McCloud arm one day and the Pit arm another day. The McCloud is full of Browns and Rainbows right now. The rain Has brought them in to feed on Shad. Try trolling Shad patterns, Artic Fox flies in rust, white and black...the black too. Trolling at 35 feet for Rainbows out from shore has been good when you see bait. The Browns are in tight to shore, look for a rock shoreline and work it hard. Rolling Shad is best for the Browns. Right now up the pit arm the rainbows are on a plankton bite. We where running Orange Artic Fox flies and rust colored grubs. Nice fish up the Pit.
bulletTRINITY LAKE - Trinity got 2 feet of snow. No Report.
bulletLAKE ALMANOR - No Report.
bulletWHISKEYTOWN LAKE - I have not fished here yet this year. We will be fishing here real soon for the Kokanee.
bulletBeginning in September, the big Rainbow Trout start moving to the north end of Eagle Lake and that is when we start fishing for these monsters. One and two day guided fishing trips available.

Keep it Tight,
Keith Kerrigan
