Lakes Fishing Report

Lakes Fishing Report

Updated January 22nd, 2024

Lakes Around the Area

Donner Lake

With the winter here, Donner Lake can still be accessed by shore or boat. There is a decent shore bite for rainbows using mostly powerbait and salmon eggs. Donner Lake is at 78% capacity.

Boca Reservoir

At Boca Reservoir, ice has started to form, but it is not safe enough for any fishing or recreation. Right now, it is recommended to avoid heading here for any fishing until ice clears or freezes. Boca Reservoir is currently at 40% capacity.

Stampede Reservoir

With the road snowed-in in some parts, access can only be made by foot or snowmobile during the winter.

Prosser Creek Reservoir

Prosser Creek Reservoir was the most recently stocked lake in the area with it receiving large amount of cutthroat trout in keepable sizes. Fishing here can be wide open right now with all angling techniques finding some success. Prosser Creek Reservoir is currently at 40% capacity.

Jackson Meadows Reservoir

With the road snowed-in, access can only be made by foot or snowmobile during the winter.

Pyramid Lake

Pyramid lake has been fishing much better from shore with the colder temperatures lately. The midge bite has started to really turn on. This is primarily done by fishing under an indicator or bobber. Still at times though, stripping buggers and beatles do well. Just a reminder that if you're going out there, the fishing is always better if you can pick a day with some incoming weather. The calm sunny days can be tough fishing trying to get a bite.
