FISHING REPORT
Updated - 10/12/19

Current Conditions: Water levels are stable, clear and in good condition

Fishing remains very good: The Fly Shop in Redding reports that the lake is still fishing well and with the weather cooling and the days becoming cooler fishing should continue to improve. Best fishing is at the edge of weed beds.  Heavy midge hatches appear on cooler mornings. Midges are the most prolific bug right now and you will notice lots of noses poking out of the surface film in the mornings.  BYO hatches are starting up now if it is a cloudy day be prepared with some Baetis parachutes and cripple patterns.  Strip Crystal Buggers, black, olive or brown. Balanced leeches in various colors will work wonders.
