Lake Camanche Fishing Report 4/20/18

At the time of this report, Lake Pardee was still at 100% full sending approx. 1,337 C.F.S. down to Lake Camanche. Camanche rose to up 87% full since last week and was at an elevation of 228.27′ again at the time of this report. Lake Camanche has decreased its release down to approx. 500 C.F.S. allowing the lake to continue to rise.

Lassen released 1,200 lbs. of trout at the South Trout Pond, 1,200 lbs. at the Catfish Pond (Children’s Event) and 600 lbs. to the south lake.

Right: Jeff Alley also posted to FB reporting, “Caught my limit out at Camanche this morning. First time out fishing in over a month. I really needed this. Lots of fun. The key at the pond is have at least a 36″ leader and don’t cast far. Chartreuse garlic power eggs work best. Also tube jigs or Rapala broke backs. The leader can just be your space between the hook and your sliding sinker. 4-6 lb test”

Patience was the key, first fish came at seven pm with the rain. Sure was worth the wait, great fight, happy kiddo. Tried everything. One on a crawler off the bottom, and the big one took a chartreuse garlic egg two feet off the bottom, 20 yards out.”

You can definitely tell the difference between the bass and a crappie on a lightweight pole.  #crappiefishing #fishinglife #lakecamanche  #lakelife  #outdoorlife  #nature”
