Lakes Fishing Report


Updated July 12th, 2024


Donner Lake

Donner Lake has recently been stocked with rainbow trout. This has led to a plentiful bite for both shore and boat anglers. Anglers fishing in the 80-foot water column are reporting good mackinaw catches, while kokanee are biting around the 50-foot water column. There is a 5 fish limit at Donner Lake, which is currently at 96% capacity.

Boca Reservoir

During the weekends, there is still a lot of boat traffic at Boca Reservoir. Anglers have had the most success in the mornings and evenings. Those targeting kokanee have been successful in the middle of the lake, particularly in the 60-foot water column. Shore fishing for trout near the dam has also been productive using powerbait and worms. Currently, Boca Reservoir is at 90% capacity.

Stampede Reservoir

At Stampede Reservoir, the kokanee have started hanging out a bit deeper due to the warmer temperatures. Kokanee are biting at around 70 feet, and the hot colors for lures are green and pink. As for the trout at Stampede, they're biting at around 20 feet deep, but the action slows down after 10am as things start heating up. If you're a shore angler, you might find the bite a bit slow due to the reservoir being at full capacity. Stampede Reservoir is currently at 95% capacity.

Prosser Creek Reservoir

The fishing conditions at Prosser Creek Reservoir are good right now. The water levels have dropped slightly, which opens up some more shoreline for anglers to work with. Anglers are experiencing a strong shore bite near the dam and the north end of the lake. Those who are trolling are having success in the 45 to 50-foot water column. Prosser Creek Reservoir is currently at 80% capacity.

Jackson Meadows Reservoir

At Jackson Meadows Reservoir, fishing has been slow with the increase in water temperatures. The water temperature just below the surface is measuring around 75 degrees. Because of this, the fish are staying deep. Jackson Meadows Reservoir is currently at 100% capacity.

Pyramid Lake

Pyramid Lake is closed for the season.
