Lake Almanor

 

Trophy sized German brown trout, rainbow trout, and king salmon await anglers on Lake Almanor. There is a full range of popular areas to fish for trout on this lake. These include the shoreline near the A-Frame, the east side of the dam, Recreation Area #1, Recreation Area #2, Old Crawford's, the Hamilton Branch, Big Springs Cove, Bailey Springs and the Powerhouse area. Still fishing with nightcrawlers, salmon eggs or marshmallows is popular with both bank and boat fishermen. A slide-float with native minnows fished 20-30 feet deep is also effective. Drifting a live nightcrawler, particularly around the deeper, cooler underwater springs can result in some stellar catches. With increases in water temperatures in Lake Almanor, shift gears and use either lead core or downriggers. The North Fork of the Feather River drains into the lake and you can find some good fishing for native trout.
