On March 27, then Collins Lake crew released four out of twelve net pens of trout, the equivalent of about three plants. Then on the following week, they received another 1,800 lbs. of trophy trout and released yet another two net pens.

“That is a whopping 6,500 lbs. of trout in a two week span,” revealed Kathy Hess of the Collins Lake Resort.

“Larry Moore from Sutter must have prayed for abundance because that’s what he got,” said Hess. “He hooked a perfect limit of rainbows and his big one was a 3 lb. 12 oz. beauty that he caught on worms by the dam.”

Young Celeste Chavers hooked a huge 2 lb. 12 oz. trout by the marina on PowerEggs. Ryan and Haley Olson used pink PowerBait on the beach and hooked 3 trout, then later that day caught 2 more trout and the biggest one weighed 3 pounds!

Tim Zerba and Joice Mercier from Oroville used red and chartreuse PowerBait and caught a limit of trout up to 4 pounds by the dam. John, Spencer and Klint and their gang caught 12 bass, 3 trout, 3 catfish, and a bluegill fishing with worms on a bobber.

Ken and Jordyn Parks from Citrus Heights brought in a 2 lb. 8 oz. trout on PowerBait by the dam. Leilani and her group showed off their 6 b. 4 oz. Catfish that they hooked on chicken livers by the dam.

John Bullock caught a 4 lb. 8 oz. rainbow caught from the shoreline on a Rapala. Steve Billeci and Rob from Antioch trolled nightcrawlers and caught a limit of trout, a bass, and a catfish that weighed 4 lb. 4 oz.
