The Fish Sniffer - Big Numbers Of Big Trout Excite Anglers
Big Numbers Of Big Trout Excite Anglers

Written By: Danny Lloyd, April 27, 2014
Species: Trout Bass
Location: Rollins Reservoir, Scotts Flat Reservoir,

Hot spring fishing continues in the sierra foothills at Scotts Flatt and Rollins Reservoir. Anglers are catching both trout and bass, and lots of them. Provided there is no substantial change in the weather pattern, the action should improve steadily in the coming weeks.

Brenden Bullard of Newcastle fished Rollins this past week and was rewarded with some lights out fishing. He started the morning fishing near the dam setting up one rod soaking power bait and walking the bank casting his other rod. He fished two main lures all day, a 1/8-ounce silver/blue Kastmaster and a 1/8 oz lead head with a Berkely Power Grub in a white color.

Brenden reported, “The best bite I found all day was the white Berkely Power Grub on the 1/8-ounce jig head. I caught over 10 bass and 5 trout off the same lure in no more than 3 hours!” Brenden ended his day catching over 15 bass to 3 pounds and 6 rainbows to 15 inches. Expect other species like bass and crappie to pick up in Rollins come this warmer weather.

At Scotts Flat Reservoir fishing for black bass has taken off these past weeks. Reports continue to be good for fisherman working the points and structure they can find around the lake.

For rainbows, bank anglers are soaking Power Bait, Fire Bait and inflated worms off Cascade Shores near the marina. The best action takes place during the middle of the day and when the water temperature peaks.
