Hot-Bites Fishing Report
By the Fish Sniffer Staff

February 27, 2010
Updated Regularly

(Riverton) Fishing has picked up at Jenkinson Lake as anglers have scored on hefty mackinaw trout.
“A nine pound, twenty-seven inch mackinaw was taken by Nate Turner this week,” said Jim Cozzens of Sly Park Lake Resort. “Nate pulled a broken-back Rapala at the islands and battled the fish to the boat.”
Good numbers of macks in the 1-3 pound range have been caught at the islands also. “Few reports of rainbows or browns are available as most anglers have focused on macks,” he tipped.
Most Crystal Basin lakes are still blocked by snow or frozen over. Expect trout fishing at Ice House and Union Valley reservoirs to improve as the weather warms.

Great Places to Fish
Lake Tahoe is known for its mackinaw trout, which run deep and weigh to over 20 lbs. These guys can be tricky to catch, but the fight is worth the effort. Tahoe also boasts of a healthy kokanee salmon population and rainbow trout. The Truckee River is a "Catch and Release," trout fishery. The area is dotted with alpine lakes. Some of the more notable being Stampede Reservoir, Meadow Lake, Donner Lake, Kinney Reservoir, Caples Lake and Loon Lake. All are accessible by car. The Carson River is a fly fishing destination. The Yuba River is big, fast, and deep. There is great fishing but sometimes you have to share the river with the gold miners. Another hot spot is the Lakes Basin area near Graeagle.
