Lakes Fishing Report

Updated December 10th, 2021


Fishing has slowed down at Donner Lake with the cold temperatures arriving in the area. Some fish are being caught at the boat ramp still using live bait, powerbait, worms, or spoons. Live bait is performing best this time of year. Anglers should fish everything off the bottom because the fish will not move far to bite.

Donner Lake is currently at 68% capacity.



Boca is fishing well for shore anglers using powerbait and live worms. Anglers should fish off the bottom of the dam or near the inlet for best results.

Boca Reservoir is currently at 48% capacity



Stampede reservoir’s boat ramp is closed due to ice. There is a good shore bite near the dam using powerbait or live worms. The weather system moving through this weekend will most likely close the roads to Stampede Reservoir for the season.

Stampede Reservoir is currently at 38% capacity.



Prosser Reservoir currently has a decent bite off of the dam using live worms or powerbait. If you’re using small lures, retrieve your lure very very slow. /p>

Prosser Creek Reservoir is currently at 50% capacity.



Jackson Meadows Reservoir is not be accessible for the remainder of the season due to the snow on the road. Anglers are advised to fish elsewhere.



Pyramid Lake continues to improve. Anglers can expect a great shore bite with this round of storms moving through this weekend. Southern beaches including wino beach, cattle guard beach, and popcorn beach are fishing well. Some flies to try there for anglers to try are black wooly worms, balanced leeches, midges, and foam beetles. Spots up north to check out are Spider point and Pelican point. Look for shore fishing conditions to further improve as more winter storms make an appearance.
