“Give a man a fish and he has food for a day; teach him how to fish and you can get rid of him for the entire weekend.”
The water temperatures have dropped from their summertime highs that can put a funk on feeding trout. With Labor Day behind us, the summer time crowds have dwindled. The weather forecast calls for comfortable early fall weather for the next few weeks.
Sounds like a recipe for some good fishing.
Doug Neal of Almanor Fishing Adventures is one of the most reliable sources of fishing information for Almanor. He only guides on Almanor and he is on the lake nearly every day.
Doug says the fish are fat and actively feeding on smelt and they will be the rest of the year. Doug reports that rainbows over 3 pounds are not uncommon now and even bigger fish are being caught regularly.
