1,200 lbs of Mt. Lassen Trout was planted last Thursday 4/30/15 with 600 lbs. dropped at the South Shore Pond and 600 lbs. in the lake at North Shore. Water temperatures still holding at 70 degrees.

Catfish are starting to get hot with good size cats being pulled in from the cove around the North Shore boat launch Day Use Area.

Trout and Bass are strong too although the bass anglers are as tight lipped as ever. Trout are being hauled in from out North of the dam, off the Hat Island area  and of course the pond. Bass boats are spotted off the South West side of the lake just outside the newer coves and by the rock wall in the narrows. Reported baits this week were Catfish: chicken liver and rapala lure, Trout: 30′ to 60′ feet down, anything garlic flavored, power worms and nightcrawler on a water dodger, Bass: sorry not reported.
