Species: Trout
Location: Lafayette Reservoir,

Trout fishing at Lafayette Reservoir continues to be steady. “We had our Mt. Lassen plant yesterday and will have another plant next week,” said Soehl KnKade at Lafayette Reservoir.

“The water temperature continues to drop as it was 49.2 Fahrenheit at 30 feet, but 49.8 at the surface due to the low dew point and strong solar heating from the drought,” KnKde stated. “Expect a lot of cloud cover over the next several days and even a bit of rain.”

The standard baits have been worms or PowerBait. “I am pleased to announce that we had one fisher pull out a 5.8 pound rainbow trout last week, the largest actually seen and weighed this season. Unfortunately, it was too late in the day to get a photo of her and her catch,” said KnKade.

“Though chartreuse PowerBait is most popular, other fishers have brought in several trout with yellow, rainbow, and orange eggs, for example,” KnKade added.
