Mt. Lassen didn’t disappoint us with A 14 POUND 4 OUNCE RAINBOW. Timothy Lambert, while working a night crawler along the shoreline below Chambers Park snagged this beauty on 11-26-14. It was part of a plant brought to us from Mt. Lassen November 20th for the Thanksgiving Weekend and we are giving thanks!
Other notable catches from that plant are Larry Dog of Descanso with an 8 pound 8ounce “bow”; Dustin C. Thompson of El Cajon with an 11 pound beauty; Michelle Nute catching a 7 pound 8 ounce rainbow; Larry Fredricks of El Cajon with another 7 pound 8 ounce fish; Guy Sarver with an 11 pound 3 ounce rainbow…location and bait was undisclosed; Brayden and Jason Greenfield of 29 Palms with a stringer of nice fish including a 6 pound 8 ounce rainbow. We have had some happy anglers.
I thought that the 65 pound plus Sturgeon that was caught on 11-9-14 by Cameron Kane using 3# test line, and then released back into the Lake was going to be the headline of the winter months, but the trout fishing has been phenomenal with lots of limits.
Our lake level has been diminished due to the drought, but the near future weather forecast is predicting rain, so put your rain-dance outfit on and hope for some wet stuff. If the trend continues, the storm will be downgraded…let’s hope not.
