JB Fishing picked met me at the North Minden Staging Area and we headed up 88 to see a little color and maybe catch a trout or two.

Up on 88 a lot of the fall color is gone. The exceptions are the canyon between Woodsfords and Sorensen's and along 88 between the Blue Lakes road and Carson Pass.

We arrived at Silver Lake around 0815. We found the lake very low. The water clear and cold. We fished just off the dam for 5 hours bringing 40 fish to the shore. These were all good size CDFW stockers to 17 inches. All fish came on 1/4 oz. Kastmasters and Gulp. We saw only two other people fishing on the lake. If you want to see color go soon. Thanks for the ride Jeff. It was a wonderful day.

Thanks for the report and, as always, the beautiful pictures.That is a premiere spot to fish as the planting truck usually drops them at that ramp and they migrate through that area to the main lake. Lots of fun soon after the drop. Much like ICR and Caples can be as well. Good going fellas.....Jetspray
