Bundle Up For The Trout

Species: Trout
Location: Collins Lake,

“It’s really chilly here at Collins Lake, so get out your warm woolies along with your fishing gear,” said Kathy Hess of the Collins Lake Resort. “Limits of trout continue to be caught; they actually love the cold weather.”

Sydney Foster from Live Oak and her dad trolled near the island and she caught her limit of trout while trolling with PowerBait. Anthony, Alyssa, and Hailey from Gridley caught 8 beautiful trout from shore near the beach using PowerBait. Mark and Jeremy Gaede had no problem catching two full limits of Rainbows on yellow PowerBait down by the dam.

Jim Cleary hooked a 3 lb. 12 oz. trout on green PowerBait by the dam while Bob Thorn caught a 2 lb. 12 oz. trout while trolling a Sling Blade and Apex lure. Little Leeana Campbell of Roseville showed up both these guys with her 4 lb. 4 oz. trout that she caught from her campsite.

Natalie and Bouzer hooked a giant 7 lb. 8 oz. catfish on PowerBait off the sand beach. Natalise helped her Daddy (Vincent Vang) hook two limits of trout by the dam on a worm/PowerBait combo.

“A cute little guy named Ezekiel caught his first trout limit with help from his Grandpa Sam Briefman and Sam’s lovely new bride Elaine,” said Hess. “Elaine is a ‘fishing guru’ who has an annual pass and fishes Collins Lake religiously, she even hunts too! That lucky Sam, she is an outdoorsman’s dream girl.”

“Yes, the lake is low right now but access to the shoreline is great, you can drive down within a few feet of the shoreline anywhere in the Open Area near the dam,” said Hess.
