Whiskeytown Lake.- This lake is deceptively cold. There are plenty of trout near the Power House, however fishing this lake is very difficult even for the veterans. There seems to be a code of silence when it comes to fishing this lake. Trial and error and a whole lot of patience is the key to ultimate success here. Courtesy of FISHINGNOTES.COM
