Happy Thanksgiving!

Lake Camanche was unchanged from last week’s 72% and an elevation of 218.63′ at the time of this report. Lake Camanche’s release was approx. 335 C.F.S. while receiving 239C.F.S. from Pardee again at the time of this report.

Mt. Lassen Trout were planted on Friday 11/16.  Mt. Lassen planted 900 lbs. at the south shore trout pond, and 900 lbs. to both shores at their boat ramps. Next plant will go back up to 3,600 lbs. with 1,200 to be released to each of the three locations sometime before next weekend.

EXCITING NEWS AT THE POND! The 1,200 lbs. to be planted at the pond will be Lightning Trout! The meat looks and tastes the same as the rainbow trout.

Water temperatures were reported between 61-65 degrees.

Nothing for the first hour!!! Then we both noticed that Dan had pulled out a Banana… After Eating Half of it, Lonnie said “You know your not supposed have them on the boat. Dan Said “What do I do with the Other one!!! Lonnie says “Give them both to me!!! Guess where they ended up!!! Then not even 30 Seconds, after releasing these Bad JuJu Yellow things!!! Fish ON!!! Then another!!! Finally boating their 10th fish and losing 5 or 6. We headed in a little after 1pm. Yet another awesome day on Lake Camanche!!! (Koke Machine Guide Service)”

Left & right: Byron Kenerly from the YakaBass tournament posted these shots and commented, “Tough day of tourney fishing for many, myself included. Teammates did well. All I had to do was catch a 12 inch bass for a chance to win. Spent over 2 hrs. fishing at the spot that produced 5 measurable fish on Friday. Not one bite. Moved to 50 feet depth and landed a 12.75 inch bass on my first cast at 1:45. We ended up winning. I caught my PB for a spot and Camanche on Friday. 20.50 / 4.1 lbs.”
