Anglers are still hauling in the big trout. Favorite lake location has been out by the dam using rapala and wedding ring lures. Bass anglers are keeping their information to themselves but I’ve seen plenty of them out here fishing. Favorite bait at the pond was green powerbait.

1,200 lbs of Mt. Lassen trout were planted 4/15/15 with 600 lbs going to the North shore rap and 600 lbs to the South shore ramp. Another 1,200 lbs is scheduled for next week.

Lake Camanche’s current elevation is 180.51 as of 04/14/15 and 54.99′ from spill level. Water temperature at the south shore ramp is 66 degrees and the lake is 26% full. the inflow from Pardee Lake is currently 11 c.s.f. and the outflow from Lake Camanche is 204 c.s.f.
