Donner Lake still has a great shore bite on planted rainbows in china cove and between the boat ramp and loch leven lodge. Anglers trolling for Kokanee are having success early in the mornings at the first light of the day. Some kokanee are topping out around 12 inches in size. Anglers trolling for Kokanee should try using standard kokanee bugs or hoochies with lemonade dodgers in 45 feet of water. Macks are stacked up in the holes around 120 feet of water. Anglers jigging for macks should try using buzzbombs and cripplures.
Donner Lake is currently at 90% capacity.
Boca Reservoir currently has a great kokanee bite around the dam in 50 feet of water. The size of the Kokanee are larger than Stampede’s Kokanee, averaging around 10-12 inches in size. Anglers should use any of their favorite kokanee setups with shoepeg corn on the hook. Anglers trolling trout should use small rapalas, speedy shiners, and small kastmasters. Shore fishing is currently doing best off the dam and the westside of the reservoir. Anglers shore fishing should stick to worms, eggs, or powerbait.
Boca Reservoir is currently at 50% capacity.
Fishing at Stampede Reservoir is like shooting fish in a barrel due to the reservoir having lower than normal water levels this time of year. The kokanee bite is still red hot, but unfortunately the fish are small in size around 6-9 inches. Anglers are seeing the best Kokanee bite near the boat ramp and the dam. Anglers are also catching some macks in front of the dam in 120 feet of water. The water level around the boat ramp is low so be cautious when launching any boats.
Stampede Reservoir is currently at 41% capacity.
Prosser Reservoir is fishing really great for rainbow, cutthroat, and bass. It is probably the best reservoir for fishing in Truckee currently. Anglers trolling in should use small rapalas, a dodger with a small nightcrawler, or speedy shiners and focus their efforts in front of the dam. Shore fishing has been best by the boat ramp and near the prosser creek inlet. Anglers fly fishing can find great float tubing opportunities using wooly buggers, black leeches, or callibaetis.
Prosser Creek Reservoir is currently at 50% capacity.
JACKSON MEADOWS RESERVOIR
Anglers fishing Jackson Meadows Reservoir are still seeing some nice size rainbows trolling with rapalas, dodgers with worms, and speedy shiners. Shore Anglers are having some success fishing the north side of the reservoir near the dam using an inflated nightcrawler or powerbait.
