Lakes Fishing Report

Updated September 22, 2022

Lakes Around the Area

Donner Lake

The Kokanee bite is starting to wind down at Donner Lake, but there are still some bigger fish being caught in the 16 inch range. Kokanee are found around the 60 foot water column. Some Mackinaw being caught in 120 feet of water near the boat ramp. Anglers should troll with Lyman lures and rapalas for the Mackinaw. Shore fishing is slow right now, but will improve once the weather cools down. Look for trout to move back towards the shoreline near the shore drop offs.

Boca Reservoir

At Boca Reservoir, the Kokanee bite is still going strong in the early morning before the lake gets busy with the daily boat traffic. The mini salmon are biting in 40 to 50 feet of water on purple or pink spinners. Trout fishing is also improving near the dam and west side coves. Anglers fishing for trout should try using powerbait or inflated nightcrawlers on a Carolina rig off the bottom in 20 feet of water.

Stampede Reservoir

Kokanee fishing is winding down at Stampede Reservoir with the Kokanee starting to get into pre-spawn mode. Some anglers are switching over to trolling for next year's Kokanee and trout. Anglers are trolling in 20 to 40 feet of water. Some nice size trout are being caught trolling spoons, night crawlers, or Kokanee rigs.

Prosser Reservoir

Prosser Reservoir is starting to get very low and launching is beginning to be a challenge for larger boats. Trolling in front of the dam is good to fair for some trout. The bass are holding off in the deeper points of the reservoir. Both the trout and bass bite are decent in around 30 feet of water.

Jackson Meadows Reservoir

Jackson Meadows Reservoir still has good water levels. Anglers will find a great rainbow bite trolling in 50 feet of water in the pass creek arm. The recommended choice of bait is powerbait and worms for the rainbows. Anglers looking to try their luck for the larger rainbows or browns should troll in 50 feet of water with dodgers and worms.

Pyramid Lake

Report will return at the start of the next Pyramid Lake fishing season.
