Due to the threat of Quagga mussels, there remains a ban on private water craft and equipment. Restricted equipment includes; private boats, canoes, kayaks, float tubes, trolling motors, fish finders, anchors, and other equipment that contacts the water.
Permits and Boat Rentals are now issued by a machine located at the Ranger Station. The machine can take cash (no $50 or $100 bills), debit, or credit. Please take note we do not sell fishing licenses, bait, or tackle so anglers must acquire these essentials elsewhere prior to their visit. The lake is offering $20 all day motor boats to active military every Saturday.
The opening of trout season is only two weeks away. The lake will re-open for weekday fishing beginning December 9th following the first trout plant. We are getting our trout from a new hatchery this year Calaveras Trout Farm in Northern California. We are continuing to stock aggressively right out of the gate with 9,000 lbs. slated for December alone. So make plans to come and join us this winter for what promises to be another great season.
Largemouth bass can be found lurking around structure. With the re-introduction of trout just around the corner this an excellent time to dust off those swimbaits in the hopes of landing a big one.
Crappie can be found in the early morning hours near the cover of shade or in rocky outcroppings. They respond best to finger jigs or live golden shiners.
Each month Whopper Contest winners in four categories are awarded a free fishing and boating permit. For information on the contest or fishing conditions, please contact the Ranger Station at (760) 839-4346.
