Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, June 27, 2012 5C Fishing pressure light Frenchman Lake Michael Condon Staff Writer " "I've gone fishing thou- sands of times in my life, and I have never once felt unlucky or poorly paid for those hours on the water." --William Tapply Lake Almanor Surface water tempera- tures had been moving into the high 60s, but have now dropped a bit with the re- cent cool and windy weath- er. This will keep the fish scattered throughout the lake just a bit longer. Fishing pressure is light. Strong winds this past weekend probably had a lot to do with that. Scattered fish coupled with very abun- dant feed, mostly insects, have anglers working a lit- tle longer for their catch. According to Doug Neal of Almanor Fishing Adven. tures, the fish are snacking on small portions all day. Doug has had the most suc- cess trolling Speedy Shin- ers, or threaded crawlers be- hind Strike Master dodgers. Most of his fish are rain- bows in the 2-pound range. He is also picking up a few salmon along the west shore. Insect hatches are abun- dant, mostly mayflies and midges. The Hexagenia are hatching on the west shore, mostly by the dam where they usually show up irst. Fishing pressure has been light so reports are scarce this week. Night crawlers and rain- bow PowerBait are still the most productive. Fish are starting to move deeper as the water warms. Trollers are doing well with rooster tails and night crawler flasher combina- tions. Fly anglers are find- ing fish with woolly buggers and Jay Fair Wiggle Tail Nymphs. For the most up-to-date in- formation, call Wiggins Trading Post at 993-4683. They also have all the fish- ing and camping gear you might need. Lake Davis Lake level is at 80 percent; Water temperatures are in the low to mid-60s. Fishing continues to be good accord- ing to the folks at J&J Griz- zly Store and Camping Re- sort. Eagle POint continues to be hot. PowerBait or inflat- ed night crawlers are pro- ducing for shore anglers. Fly-fishing from Eagle Point to Freeman has been good. Assorted nymphs, damselflies and woolly bug- gers have all been reported to be doing well. Trollers working between and to the west of the is- lands with Needlefish are finding some nice fish. MADDEN Butt Lake The powerhouse is run- ning, the smallmouth are biting and the Hex are hatching. Fishing pressure is light. That sounds like an invitation to me. Bucks Lake Fishing pressure has been light, in part because of wind. Kokanee mixed with a few browns and rainbows are being caught by trollers. The Mill creek and Bucks Creek inlets are the most productive spots. The kokanee are onthe small side, but that is normal for this time of the season. Streams The North Fork Feather is fishing well, according to Tom Maumoynier of Lake Almanor Fly Fishing Co. (258-3944).
