AMERICAN RIVER - The salmon closure area, the lower end marked by power lines crossing the river at Ancil Hoffman Park, opened on Tuesday, January 1. The American did some yo-yo-ing going down to 5,200 cfs on opener, to 2,500 cfs on Wednesday, then back up to 5,000 cfs the next day. The river has plenty of big steelhead in it given the number present in the hatchery, but fishing is best in the section of river above Hazel Avenue Bridge. Drift nightcrawlers, small Spin-n- Glos and roe, for best results.
RANCHO SECO LAKE - Its being planted with trout regularly, and fishing was good again from the bank with Power Bait, inflated nightcrawlers and spoons and spinners. Boaters in kayaks, float tubes, and canoes were trolling leeches, woolly buggers, Needlefish, and nightcrawlers behind dodgers for fish mostly around 12 inches and up to 3 pounds.
CAPLES LAKE - Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters reported that the lake was frozen and ice fishermen were on the lake, especially at the spillway where the snow was only 2 feet deep over the ice, making for easier hole auguring. Caples Lake Resort reported 3 to 4 feet of snow on top of the ice near the resort.
DAVIS LAKE - The lake is at 77-percent capacity. Ed Dillard at Dillard's Guided Fishing reported that there were 20 anglers on the ice at the dam this past weekend. The ice was a very safe at 14 inches thick - its been very cold here with nighttime temps below-zero and daytime highs below freezing. Dillard said most fishermen were catching 1 or 2 fish each on worms and Power Bait - experiment to find the right depth, it can change each day. The road is plowed to the dam, but 4-wheel drive is still highly recommended due to icy condition.
CHETCO RIVER, Ore. - Fishing started back up here this past weekend after 10 days of being blown out, according to Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing. He went 4 for 5 on Friday, using both plugs and roe. The river should be good fishing this weekend.
COOS RIVER, South Fork, Coos Bay, Ore. - This river is still on the murky side of visibility, but anglers keeping their baits next to shore are catching their share of steelhead, according to guide Curtis Palmer of River Secrets Guide Service. This is one of the mountain rivers where good memories are sure to be made from fishing trips with friends and family. The season is just getting started and there should be fish to catch during the next 2 months. Regulations are showing that we can keep 3 hatchery steelhead on this river and its tributaries this year.
COQUILLE RIVER, South Fork, Powers, Ore. - Bank anglers who have been fishing the river near the town of Broadbent, Oregon, have been catching winter steelhead again since a couple days after Christmas. The river started dropping into shape for the driftboats on Saturday and was in perfect shape Sunday afternoon, according to WON Field Reporter and guide Curtis Palmer or River Secrets. "The river was busy with all the boats traveling every direction, but it wasn't overly crowded. Most of the boats reported catching 2 or 3 steelhead on Sunday," Palmer said. "Reports from the plunking hole farther downriver by a good 7 miles had a staggering day of fighting fish, where plunkers caught 17 fresh steelies. We are allowed to harvest 3 hatchery steelhead this year on the Coquille River and its tributaries." EEL RIVER, Main Stem - Really blown out and only fished a few days early on, and it's been blown out and unfishable since.
EEL RIVER, South Fork - The river fished for a few days before the last storm, before Christmas, and there were some big steelhead in the South Fork, but then it blew out again and it's still really high and brown, according to Mark Nimitz of Pipe Creek Guide Service. January has been really good, the past few years. Some guys fished last week and caught 11 fish in one day last week, up in the teens, and bright chromers, Nimitz said. Two of their fishing days were not so good, but the last day was really hot. Keep an eye on the rain, and when it goes a few days without rain the top of the South Fork Eel should start fishing.
ELK RIVER, Port Orford, Ore. - The season of salmon fishing on the coast is over and I, for one, have moved on to fishing for chrome steelhead, said guide Curtis Palmer. Salmon-chasers might still find a late-running fish. This last weekend there were still some reports of large numbers of Chinook's being caught. I also received a few reports of some large-sized native steelhead being caught and released. One friend of mine shared the events of his Saturday trip on the river and I was a little surprised when he said out of the 9 salmon they lost on Saturday, that most were as shiny as chrome. Shiny salmon this time of year, and in those large of numbers, doesn't sound normal to me, but hey, when good things happen it is smart to take advantage of the situation." GARCIA RIVER--Now's the time to fish here, but the numbers of steelhead aren't what they used to be due to serious poaching, and won't be for some years. Even so, there are some nice catch-and- release fish here.
GUALALA RIVER - There was a good push of steelhead into the river before the last storm, and there are even more in the river now. The flows were good at press time on Monday, and fly fishing conditions should be good by the time you read this, according to Craig Bell of Greenwater Guide Service.
ROGUE RIVER, Shady Cove - The Fishin' Hole in Shady Cove reported a couple of guide boats were out on Sunday, but no reports back. They did catch some steelhead on Friday and Saturday. The guides were all fishing between the hatchery and Shady Cove, where the water conditions are clear, but high.
RUSSIAN RIVER - According to Steve Jackson of Kings Sport and Tackle, the river is a muddy mess. He said that the reservoirs upstream held back a lot of water and are now dumping to the tune of 2,000 cfs out of Mendocino and 3,000 cfs out of Lake Sonoma. He said to look for another week or so of dumping, the maybe 10 days for the river to be back in shape for steelheading.
SMITH RIVER - The Smith River fishing is fair to good, according to guide Phil Desautel of Phil's Smiling Salmon Guide Service. It is a fish here and a fish there. One day you get 3, the next you may not get a bite, while you hear of somebody else who may have caught 4 or 5. The water is in great shape and the crowds are light. On Sunday, Desautel hooked 4 and landed 3.
UMPQUA RIVER, Elkton, Ore. - This river has been blown out of shape for most of the last month. Over the last week, though, there have been a couple of steelhead caught at various locations on the river near Roseburg. Steelhead on this river can end up spawning in one of 3 major rivers. Most of the hatchery steelhead will return to the South Umpqua River with some native steelhead. The North Umpqua River will receive mostly native steelhead, and these fish are some of the biggest to be found on the west coast. Not all of the steelhead will travel into one of the forks, some will stay in the main river to spawn. It becomes easy too see why this area is so appealing to anglers looking for steelies, said Curtis Palmer of River Secrets Guide Service.
TRINITY/KLAMATH RIVERS KLAMATH RIVER - It's switched from rain and snow to cold, but the good news is that the water is fishable below the incoming Shasta River all the way down towards Humbug Creek. Try egg patterns in light orange and pink, rubber legs, and red copper John's for trout and steelies to about 4 pounds. Non-fly fishers are scoring on crawdad plugs and drifted nightcrawlers.
TRINITY RIVER - The river has cleared and dropped quickly. Fishing for nice steelhead was very good as the river was dropping after the rain and snow, but now, very cold nights have made the fish lethargic and even good anglers were working hard for a few grabs by the end of the week compared to half a dozen fish an outing earlier. There are still plenty of fish around, though, and more to come upstream, but these are adult winter fish, mostly wild, and fishing is going to be more of a challenge.
TRINITY RIVER, Willow Creek - The Trinity was dropping and clearing below the North Fork, and there should still be plenty of fish to come upstream. There were very few anglers on the water, though.
NORTH COAST LAKES CLEAR LAKE - Minnows fished on a drop-shot rig in the clearer water of the Redbud arm will produce fish for patient anglers. Try rocky points in Jago Bay, Konocti Bay, around the Monitor Island area in 8 to 28 feet. Anglers who prefer artificial baits will have their work cut out for themselves. Best bets will include bottom scraping swimbaits like 8-inch Huddleston's, 6- or 7-inch Osprey top hooks or River2Sea live eye bottom walkers in 5- and 6-inch sizes. A few reports added the umbrella rig.
LAKE BERRYESSA - No reports this past week, but Don Paganelli of Don Paganelli's Bass Fishing Experience said bass had been on a good bite before the storms. Most were up in the 20-foot range falling for drop- shot rigged plastics and tubes fished on 1/8-ounce dartheaded jigs. The spoon bite was also good working bait schools holding in creek channels in the Narrows.
LAKE SONOMA - High and muddy, steelie trollers didn't have a chance. The bass fishing also slowed, but fishing black and blue jigs or shaking worms in 15 to 25 feet of water was catching some nice largemouth to 5 pounds for persistent anglers.
UPPER BLUE LAKE - Trout have been found in abundance by the few anglers here from the banks and even from the docks. The east side has been better, especially since the bottom end is muddied up.
DELTA REGION SACRAMENTO RIVER side - Cache Slough was the best place for targeting sturgeon, but not many anglers were out. Garcia Bend, Merits Landing and down in Hood area produced fish on eel/nightcrawler combos, but it's taking bankies 10 to 12 ounces to hold it on the bottom.
SAN JOAQUIN RIVER side - With colder waters, the sturgeon were found in 30 to 50 feet of water while they acclimate to conditions and enjoy feasting on small clams. The PG&E Plant was a good spot, but the fish are very spread out, so hit your favorite spot but stay off the main river as there is a lot of debris in the system. There's crappie in Discovery Bay and Whiskey Slough, but fish deep using minnows. Sherman Island had some stripers but not many.
NORTHEASTERN AREA LAKE ALMANOR - The rainbows have been in Geritol Cove looking to spawn and the browns will be after any spare eggs, but no one was out this past week. Use salmon eggs or roe near the bottom for them. The rainbows will hit floating baits off the bottom.
BAUM LAKE - The Fly Shop in Redding reports anglers are finding rainbows in good numbers with improved road conditions thanks to drier weather. It should be a good choice this coming week.
CASSEL FOREBAY - Closed until further notice for repairs. All water has been drained into the natural creek channel that flows into Baum Lake in order to work on structure repairs in the canal. The section above the canal near the post office is fishing well but does not accommodate a lot of fishermen. There's been no indication as to when repairs may be completed or when the fore bay may reopen.
EAGLE LAKE - Closed on December 31.
PIT RIVER - The river is high, muddy and blown out, not to mention the snow. At least a week of good weather will be needed to allow for fishing here again.
SHASTA LAKE - No reports from trout trollers this past week, but a few bass anglers toughed out the cold conditions and said the jig bite is on. Fish in 10 to 20 feet of water in the main body using brown 1/2- ounce jigs with a Yamamoto trailer.
SIERRA LAKES/RIVERS BOCA LAKE - The lake is at 46-percent capacity. Mountain Hardware and Sports reported that access to the lake was limited to the dam. The ice was not safe enough for ice fishing yet--maybe by late this week. Check with Mountain Hardware and Sports for the latest conditions at (530) 587-4844.
CARSON RIVER (East) - Todd Sodaro reported bitter cold conditions along the river--half iced over and 1 1/2 to 2 feet of snow. There weren't many anglers dedicated enough or crazy enough to be wading in this river right now.
DONNER LAKE - Heavy snow limited access to the lake. The road along the north side of the lake is plowed by property owners to provide for their own parking and fishermen can't use the parking!!! The boat ramp had not been cleared yet--maybe this week if the road department gets caught on their plowing.
FRENCHMAN LAKE - The lake is at 62-percent capacity. Wiggins Trading Post reported that the road had not been plowed all the way to the dam and 4-wheel drive was mandatory for those wishing to ice fish at the dam.
ICE HOUSE RESERVOIR - The lake is at 63-percent capacity. The road to the lake was too icy and snowy for safe travel, according to Kyle Neeser at Crystal Basin Tackle and Guide Service.
INDIAN CREEK RESERVOIR - 1 1/2 to 2 feet of snow on the road according to Todd Sodaro at the Carson River Resort - no one is getting into this place for a while.
JENKINSON LAKE (Sly Park) - 8 to 10 inches of snow around the lake slowed fishing to a standstill, according to Sly Park Resort.
LAKE TAHOE - Mickey Daniels at Big Mack Charters reported good action for macks, 3 to 8 pounds, in 150 to 375 feet of water. Most of the fish were concentrated near the bottom, but some fish were caught suspended. Chuck Self at Chuck's Charter Fishing reported limits of 4- to 7 1/2-pound macks for 7 clients on two boats in 3 hours this past Friday afternoon. The fish hit a mix of spoons and small plugs in 160 to 250 feet of water. Fishing success was primarily dependent on the intensity of the wind.
PROSSER LAKE - The lake is at 33-percent capacity. Mountain Hardware and Sports reported that access was limited to the end of the road to the dam, so fishermen had to walk in from there, but the ice wasn't thick enough for safe fishing yet anyway.
PYRAMID LAKE - Eagle Eye Charters reported that fish numbers were down, but the average size was good. Over 4 trips, the Eagle Eye II landed 25 fish that included seven 7 pounders, two 8 pounders, and a 9 pounder. All were caught trolling from Block House to Indian Head with pearl/redhead or silver/blue U-20 FlatFish from 15 to 30 feet deep. Cold, windy weather has been a controlling factor. Shore fishing was still good for fly fishermen and spoon casters on the SW end beaches.
RED LAKE - Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters reported that ice fishermen were seen on the lake, but heavy snow made for difficult access and the deep snow cover over the ice that had to be augured through to reach the water, or shoveled out of the way.
SILVER LAKE - The lake is frozen and covered with 3 to 4 feet of snow making for a lot of digging to get a hole in the ice to fish.
TOPAZ LAKE - Chuck Fields at Topaz Landing Marina reported that the lake was up to 50-percent capacity. His boat ramp had 2 feet of water on it that would allow launching of smaller boats only--plus there was snow on the ramp to complicate matters even more!! With heavy off-season trout plants by the NDOW, Fields looked for a good opener on January 1. The Topaz Lodge Trout Derby also starts on January 1 with tagged fish worth cash and prizes. Call ahead to the Topaz Landing Marina for the latest conditions at (775) 266-3550.
TRUCKEE RIVER - Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters reported that the flows in the Little Truckee were good, but the river was only accessible by snowmobile or snowshoe. The main river access was difficult due to heavy snow. Mountain Hardware and Sports reported that no one was fishing with the cold weather.
UNION VALLEY RESERVOIR - The lake is at 64-percent capacity. Ken Mathis at Ken's Custom Tackle and Guide Service reported that the road to the dam was icy and treacherous requiring a chained 4-wheel drive to reach the lake, especially with a boat. Fishing here right now is probably just not a good idea!! NorCal Saltwater BENICIA--Starry flounders fed in shallow bays and coves along the Benicia shoreline, where a few striped bass were also hooked up. Boaters enjoyed a solid sturgeon bite punctuated by striper action.
BERKELEY - New El Dorado III fished Friday and got limits of crabs and rockfish for 17 anglers. Over the weekend, the El Dorado and New El Dorado III finished up with limits of combined crab and rockfish, fishing just outside the South Islands. The boats will be at dock until mid-March when the halibut action begins.
BODEGA BAY - Mid-week monster swells wreaked havoc with crab pots and the New Sea Angler really had to work for their crabs. By the weekend the gear was all dialed in and weather improved, which brought limit- style crabbing. Rockfish provided steady action and limits were common. The New Sea Angler plans to run special Humboldt squid trips in January. These trips have proven highly successful in previous years.
EMERYVILLE - Thursday through Sunday trips focused on late-season rockfish and crabs. Most trips resulted in limits on both, plus a decent pick on lingcod. Boats making the runs included the Sea Wolf, New Huck Fin, New Salmon Queen and New Seeker. Combo trips ahead include crab and sanddab and crab and Humboldt Squid.
EUREKA - Crabbing was good off of Trinidad Head, though the crabs moved deeper when big swells moved in. Crabbing was tougher inside the Bay, although kayakers and jetty fishers managed good counts. There was limited fishing for rockfish from the jetties, but rockfish were caught, mostly on squid strips pinned on surf leaders.
HALF MOON BAY/PACIFICA - Rockfish and lingcod action continued off of Pescadero and San Gregorio for the Huli Cat. Crabbers lined the jetty and pier to cast snares for Dungeness crabs. Perch fishers had a tough go of it due to sea conditions but managed a few for dinner.
MARTINEZ - Sturgeon bit near Buoy 2 and Buoy 4, for boaters soaking eels and grass shrimp. Striped bass were caught as incidentals while waiting for sturgeon.
OYSTER POINT - A late-week herring spawn generated a sturgeon bite off of Coyote Point where shore fishers and boaters both scored. Pile perch bit better this week for pier anglers using pile worms and shrimp.
PORT SONOMA/SAN RAFAEL - The "sturgeon triangle" produced very good fishing, perhaps the best of the season. The rivers of the upper San Pablo Bay continued to offer good fishing options for both stripers and sturgeon, and generally speaking the bass bit better up in the rivers where sturgeon took over the lower river areas.
SACRAMENTO VALLEY FOLSOM LAKE - The lake is clearing, and some - not many - trout and landlocked king salmon are being caught up the North Fork, by Granite Bay, and in front of the dam by trollers. Topline small Rapalas in Hot Steel and pumpkin well behind the boat, pink hoochies behind dodgers, Needlefish, and nightcrawlers. Bankies were catching small planter trout on Power Bait in bright colors, inflated nightcrawlers, and small minnows. Bass fishing was challenging, and bass were being caught around coves where the creeks coming into the lake and on flats near drop-offs where concentrations of bait are detected on fish finder. Try large plastic worms and jigs in darker colors, but try crankbaits on windy days on windward banks.
FEATHER RIVER - The Low Flow Section was off-color, but fishable, and there were still plenty of steelhead present compared to the usual number this time of year. The flow was still 1,600 cfs and likely to continue at that high level for the foreseeable future. Work the edges with dead-drifted San Juan Worms, egg patterns, and psycho prince nymphs. Spin fishermen were drifting nightcrawlers, roe, and Glo-Bugs. The section above the Highway 70 Bridge to the green bridge below the hatchery opened on Jan. 1.
SACRAMENTO RIVER - The river dropped about 15 feet by the end of last week, and anglers were just getting back to fishing. The water was still quite muddy, but the debris coming down the river had subsided. Fishing slowed in the Deep Water Channel, but some sturgeon and striped bass were being reported taken in Shag and Cache sloughs. Soak bloodworms, sardines, and mudsuckers for stripers, and pileworms and ghost shrimp for sturgeon.
YUBA RIVER - Flows dropped to 2,900 cfs, which was still high and the river was still somewhat off-color, but is again fishable.
NORTHERN FOOTHILLS AMERICAN RIVER - Lots of snow in the Georgetown area. Flows were good and water was clear, but too cold for fishing. Only open for fishing below the Hwy. 49 bridge.
BULLARDS BAR - The lake is at 82-percent capacity. The water is a nice milky green--good for bass fishing. Emerald Cove Marina saw a lot of boats out on Sunday, but no one had reported on the fishing.
CAMP FAR WEST - North Shore Resort reported that the lake was spilling and muddy. With the cold water, the few anglers out were only catching some small bass.
COLLINS LAKE - The lake is full and off-color, but not muddy. Kathy Hess reported that there were lots of anglers over the weekend--mostly shore fishermen who were picking up 1 or 2 fish each. Some limits were coming in for both trollers and shore anglers, but not many. 5- year-old Abby Harris fished with her grandpa and landed a 4-pound rainbow while trolling. Ricardo Gomez of Oroville picked up a limit of rainbows to 5 1/4 pounds on Power Bait at the beach.
ENGLEBRIGHT RESERVOIR - The lake is at 96-percent capacity. Dillon Davis at Skippers Cove Marina reported that trollers were catching planter rainbows from the marina to Keystone Cove. Boaters heading up into the inlet of the North Fork Yuba were still picking up a few 18- to 20-inch rainbows both trolling and bait fishing in the clear water. The DFG confirmed making two plants totaling 4000 pounds in December, and has committed to 8000 pounds of fish for 2013.
LAKE OROVILLE - The lake is at 71-percent capacity. Guide Ron Gandolfi reported that huge rafts of big trees and logs were a hazard to boating--BEWARE WHILE RUNNING!!! Depending on the wind, debris was blocking the launch ramp at Lime Saddle--there was less debris at the spillway and Bidwell. Fishing was good this past week with two anglers still picking 40 to 50 fish per day--mostly 1 1/2- to 2 3/4- pound spots. Gandolfi said there was a good reaction bite on ripbaits and slow-rolled spinnerbaits on rocky and woody points. The most consistent action was drop-shotting Roboworms or slowly dragging Paradise Tackle Company finesse jigs with a worm or twin tail trailer from 5 to 30 feet deep. The fish were moving daily between mud, gravel or rock banks. Smaller tributaries running into the West Branch and North Fork had warmer water flowing into the lake that was attracting spawning salmon and big schools of bass, but the clear water made the fish very spooky. Lots of 5- to 8-inch coho were being caught on small spoons, but the bass were really feeding heavily on the little silvers, too.
ROLLINS LAKE - The lake is full and muddy--not much happening here.
SCOTT'S FLAT LAKE - Jim Caldwell at the resort reported that the lake was just a foot from full with beautiful, clear water. Both rainbows and smallmouth bass were hitting at the dam. Trollers were toplining for planters using flasher/worm or spoon combos. The smallies running 2 1/2 to 3 pounds were hitting nightcrawlers, worms, and jigs.
SUGAR PINE RESERVOIR - The road to the lake was plowed by the county, but not the roads into the day-use facilities or the boat ramp. Check with the Foresthill Ranger Station for the latest conditions at 530-367-2224.
STUMPY MEADOWS RESERVOIR - The Georgetown Ranger Station reported that the road to the lake had enough snow and ice on it to make a 4-wheel drive truck mandatory to stay safe. With the road just two ruts in the snow, anything less than a truck would surely get high-centered-- use common sense while traveling in the mountains in winter conditions.
THERMOLITO AFTERBAY - The lake was a 132-foot elevation--percent capacity at press time. Still some steelhead being caught at the Wilbur Road access on minnows, bobber/nightcrawler, or inflated nightcrawler rigs. The Department of water Resources said they may release 5,000 to 10,000 more steelhead in late January or February.
MOTHERLODE AMADOR LAKE - Kathy Isaac at the Lake Amador Store said "the trout bite has been great, as we are planting 1,000 to 3,000 pounds of trout a week." The trout are biting close to the shore on 'crawlers, white Power Bait, Power Eggs, Power Grubs and blue and silver Kastmasters. The lake is 13 feet from spill.
CAMANCHE LAKE - Stephanie Wells, Lead Reservationist at Camanche Recreation Company said "The recent rains have allowed the lake level to rise and fishermen are able to catch toplining trout down to about 15 feet deep". The most popular baits and lures catching fish successfully have been white glitter marshmallows, Kastmasters, garlic rainbow Power Bait and 'crawlers. Anglers have been reporting limits of fish from north and south shore and the pond.
DON PEDRO RESERVOIR - Trout are on top, so drag shad pattern or firetiger Excel, Needlefish or Speedy Shiners 100 feet behind the boat with 3 colors of leadcore 2 or 3 miles an hour. Rogers Creek buoy line, Waterford Hole, Jenkins Hill and 49er Creek are good places to try. 49er Creek is also a good place for bass drop-shotting or dartheading shad plastics. A slow swimbait presentation is also working.
LAKE MCCLURE - Diana Mello at A-1 Bait in Snelling said "there is a good bass bite on minnows and crawdads at Barretts Cove and in Cottonwood." The bass are 20 to 40 feet deep and also hitting purple Winnie plastic worms and brown jigs. The trout are eating garlic rainbow or chartreuse Power Bait at Barretts Cove. Trollers are using flashers and 'crawlers near the dam 10 to 20 feet deep.
LAKE MCSWAIN - Dustin Grissom at Lake McSwain Marina said "fishermen are using flashers and 'crawlers catching easy limits but some of the trout are small." Jannett Sturtevant at the marina recommended garlic scented rainbow or chartreuse Power Bait at the Brush Pile and just past the Handicap Dock toward the dam for good action. The lake is back up to normal depths after the work on the dam.
NEW MELONES RESERVOIR - Trout fishing is good from the bank or boat as DFG is now planting rainbow trout weekly. Trolling anglers should try fishing near the surface with large shad patterned lures. Try using Needlefish (003 size), Excels, Kastmasters, and Speedy Shiners. Also shad patterned (natural) colored baits work best on clear days, and fire tiger (bright) colored baits work best on cloudy/rainy days. For bait fishing, try using garlic scented Power Bait (rainbow or chartreuse), or put on a Gulp! Egg or a marshmallow and float a 'crawler. Bass fishing has been fair on secondary points leading to and from the back of the major creek arms. Try using baits that cover water, and resemble shad. Spinnerbaits, crankbaits, and lip-less cranks, should do the trick. There is also a good drop-shot bite. Roboworm Alive Shad, Gulp! minnows and Zoom tiny flukesa are also working.
MODESTO RESERVOIR - The reservoir is low and it's dangerous to boat there if you don't know the area as there are hardpan humps scattered around in the middle of the lake so go slow if you don't know the reservoir. Best fishing is for bass and trout in the channel in the inlet.
LAKE PARDEE - Closed for the season.
