Kathy Hess at the Collins Lake Resort reported “serious limits” of trout and bass over the past couple of weeks.
“The Auburn Bassmasters brought up 10 boats for their tournament and everyone limited out on bass, and most caught and released all day long,” said Hess. “The bass are in their pre spawn mode and hanging out in the shallows on the east side in 8′ to 10′ of water.”
Surface temperatures ran from 50 to 53 degrees that day and the bass ranged from 3 lbs. to 5 lbs. in size.
Since this last storm, the lake has risen from 34′ down to 31′ down and more rain is expected. Our boat launching ramp is fully functional.
The lake received a double private trout plan, (1,800 lbs.) on February 27 and fishing from the shore with expectations of catching a limit is not a problem at all.
Dalton Branson from Orangevale was tossing a Kastmaster from his campsite when he landed a 4 lb. trout, Rick Grimmett and his son Guscaught 9 beautiful trout to 2 pounds, 12 ounces while trolling a Rapala.
Ricardo Gomez and his Pop (Giovanni) caught 3 trout up to 3 pounds. Jerry Olson trolled the east side with a nightcrawler behind a dodger and hooked a 3 lb. 8 oz. trout.
“Kristi, Sierra, Brandon, Chris, Kaylan and Joseph hit the jackpot,” said Hess. “Their stringer held 16 trout, the biggest two trout were 5 lbs. and 3 lbs. and they caught them all from shore near the dam on rainbow PowerBait.”
“The Xiong family also did great; their stringers held 13 trout and 3 bass. They were shore fishing by the dam with PowerBait,” said Hess.
