Welcome to the boards * :)

If you are looking for specific info, state what it is… or
Go to the top and hit search, type in Donner as the subject
Then choose the time frame
Select what you are targeting
The Trout Board
Kokanee, Coho's and Kings
The Mackinaw Board

You will get the information you are looking for faster
Also Donner is in many online fishing reports and info found in the search on the main Sniffer page
Also Sierra Anglers has reports, Keith knows the lake very well and does well.

You may have to search back further. Not a bunch of recent reports but here’s one. By a couple of local yokels. *::)

I have seen it over and over. If you put some time and thought into your question you will get much better feeback. Because it is a little easier to answer.

Donner can be a tough lake but it can be very good.

Good luck and welcome

In your profile you might want to add where you live.

Sometime the local sniffers in your area will also send you pm's
on where to go and fishing conditions and if you want to go with them, etc, etc. *mostly with the price of gas. ;)

Fished from the first public pier next to the parking lot last weekend. The lake was full of planters. Caught a fish on almost every cast. Using power bait. All small planters but fun to catch on ultra light spinning gear. I have yet to take the boat out on the lake but plan to next week.

As I was pulling out with the boat , I remembered a guy on a dock halfway down the lake.

I pulled over when I saw him, and told him they just planted the ramp area.

He started picking up his gear........... ;D ;D

Looks like those planters are making it to the dinner tables. ;)
