You've got a couple issues with Almanor at that time of year. Almanor is a very shallow lake for the most part and the water temps go up quite a bit by late summer. And with that, it becomes a pleasure craft lake, lots of water fleas making wakes. If you are in that area, some shore fishing down at Butt Lake (4 miles from Almanor) would be a better bet down by the powerhouse.

I agree with superdave! the lake gets hammered by water lice and the browns grow wary! ;)
