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!! 

6 lbs caught on White Grub near Hat Island on 12/12/17.”

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.”
