Feather River -- Sacramento River, in the Redding area, fishing for Rainbow trout is excellent for both fly fishing and spin fishing. Drifting roe is best bet for catching lots of fish.
We are producing nice size Rainbows, 16 to 20 inches,  with 15 to 35 fish days. Weather in the 70's.  For fly fishing, PMD's and Egg patterns are working well.  Some dry fly fishing in late afternoons. Weather has been prime for catching these beautiful Rainbows, water low and clear.

Keswick Lake -- Keswick Reservoir is open to fishing year round, and fishes well throughout the year. That said, we've found that the best times of year on Keswick are the winter, spring, and early summer, from November through June. Access on this stretch of water is very limited; our guides utilize jet boats to motor upstream and drift back down.

Lake Almanor -- Anglers are finding some good action with a mix of rainbows and browns caught.  The snow from last week's storm is dissipating quickly at lake level.  There was a lot of fishing pressure over the weekend.  The majority of the fishermen were targeting the South end of the lake from Rocky Point to the Dam, with 15-20 people fishing from the bank in and around Canyon Dam.  Most of the fish caught were planters with a mix of rainbows and browns.

Shasta Lake -- For Bass fishing, focusing on coves, using Ricos and Poppers have been the best on the Pit Arm. Worms are still working well also.

Trinity Lake -- Not much trout or bass action reproted, but one angler did piick up a couple of 5-pound salmon, trolling lures in the dam area.

Trinity River -- River fishing for steelhead has been great this week. Catching 2 to 4 fish a day. Number of fish will vary on this river.
Steelhead fishing on the Trinity River is producing some really nice fish. Trinity Lake has been fishing well for Kokanee salmon, limits of fish most days.

Whiskeytown Lake-- Wintertime kokanee salmon fishing is good as it gets for winter kokanee fishing.  Most anglers are trolling out by the dam and the cold-water curtain.  Early in the morning, anglers will want to use planer boards if they have them.  Planer boards will get the lures out to the side of the boat where anglers will have better luck getting the kokanee in the early morning.  Run the lures back 100 feet.
