  Donner Lake

Location and Directions:

     Donner Lake is located in Nevada County, just west of Truckee, off Interstate 80. From Sacramento take I-80 East to the lake.

General Info:

    The lake is about 3 miles long and 3/4 mile wide. Camping, water-skiing, and wind surfing are available. For more information, contact: Donner Memorial State Park (916) 582-7892 or (800) 444-7275

Boating Info:

    There is a public boat launch and rental boats are available at the marina.

Fishing Info:

    This is an excellent trout fishing lake when its not being hammered by all the swimmers, skiers, and wind surfers. Best times to fish are during the spring and fall when the weather is cooler. Rainbow trout are stocked abundantly by the DFG. There are also lake trout (mackinaw), kokanee salmon, and a few nice-sized brown trout in here as well. Good areas for trophy macks and browns are near the boat ramps where they plant the little stocker rainbows.
