Trout And Kings Bite Despite Full Moon
“Despite the full moon last week and into the early part of this week, the fishing at Lake Almanor was pretty good and with temperatures dropping it’s going to get a whole lot better soon,” exclaimed Bryan Roccucci of Big Daddy’s Guide Service.
“I’ve been working the Big Springs area primarily while fast trolling No. 2 red dot frog pattern Needlefish and Speedy Shiners. I’m hooking both rainbows and kings holding from 38 to 42 feet deep in 45 to 50 feet of water. Most of the fish are running about 3 pounds, but we get the occasional rainbow that goes 4 pounds,” added Roccucci.
Cliff Spediacci of Hook & Ladder Guide Service recently spent a few days fishing Almanor.
“For me Almanor was up and down. Our biggest fish was a 3.5 pound king that grabbed a green hoochie trolled behind a Sep’s dodger. Overall I’d say the bite was variable. At times we did well on rainbows while pulling Speedy Shiners, but the bite was inconsistent,” related Spediacci.
Bass anglers are scoring smallmouth in the 1 to 3 pound range while working rocky structure with suspending rip baits. Early in the morning there has been some topwater action as well.Back To Reports
