Woohoo!!! Full truck for Lake Camanche!! Mt. Lassen trout farm made their delivery on Thursday 12/22 dropping a total of 4,800 lbs which was split 1,200 lbs. to the south pond, 1,200 to the south ramp and 2,400 lbs. to the north ramp. That’s a total of 27,600 lbs. since we started planting!
The temperature was taken at the ramp at the time of the drop and was reading 56 degrees. Further upriver the temps are a bit cooler the closer you get to the release waters from Pardee. We will receive another huge load next week of 4,800 lbs. sometime before next weekend. Happy Holidays!!
Above: Sunday 12/17 Nathan Lenard was on a family fishing outing with wife, Cynthia and son Nate and posted this report to Facebook, “Bite for us changed fishing Camanche since last we’ve been there. The gold lures shut down right after the sun hit water with all the sunlight and lack of clouds. We went 8 for 12 on kastmasters and speedy shiners. Surface to 4′ on the rigger with two doubles. Natey got the largest fish at 5.1 pounds. Cool crisp day with the silver blue kastmasters and rainbow speedy shiner the best.”

You won’t believe me how I caught it so I will keep it to myself” He also wrote, “ Nom nom nom they were loving the ned rig with the new @robowormusa” as well as bottom left, “Spots are always so much fun to catch.
