Lakes

Lake Almanor - the center piece of our waters.  Trout, small and large mouth bass.

 LOCATION

Lake is in great shape and cooling, Big Rainbows and Browns are looking to gorge before winter and pond smelt will be on the menu. Fishing  around the river mouths has been good but look for birds feeding on smelt.
