We are open!
We opened last Saturday and kicked off with a bang. Almost everybody coming back with personal boats were catching fish. One angler caught five bass and two trout. But he released them. I saw several large trout, three different striper; but no catfish.
The water tempreture is currently 52 degrees with very little disability. the weather has been drizzly and on and off rain. But come Thursday, the weather will be perfect throughout the weekend.
The Trout are liking Mice Tails and garlic-flavored PowerBait.  Stripers are being caught using anchovies and mackerel.
Last week, 1,200 pounds of Mt. Lassen trout.
John Griffin from Sacramento caught an 8-pound trout at the Narrows using rainbow Power Bait.
