Last week, the launch ramp at Stampede Reservoir was plowed. The ramp and parking lot are clear dry. There is snow predicted this week in the high country but the quantity should be minor. The best bite was for mackinaw with the largest going to 5 pounds. There were a few kokanee taken between the ramp and the island at depths of 15 to 25 feet.

7-11 inches of snow is expected tonight, but is supposed to be warm by the weekend.

thanks! :) i may join a buddy on the little trucky river between stampede and boca on saturday. i have never fished or camped up there before so i wasn't sure what to expect. may do a little fishing at stampede while im there but was told to expect COLD weather at night if i camp and be prepared for some snow still lingering so the ground could still be pretty tore up. looks like a nice weekend ahead! ;D

I like getting a motel in truckee and driving 20 min. to the lake when it's cold and camping when its warm, but camping now would be very, very cold [smiley=cold.gif]good luck, keep warm and catch some fish.

So...the road is plowed to Stampede? I was under the impression last week that the road still had two feet of packed snow with 6" of ice on it. So whats the real story?

I went up to Stampede last Thurday or Friday, can't remember, the road is clear, the launch is clear, and the dock was still on the launch. There's plenty of room to put in your boat.
I didn't fish but ground handled my paraglider in the meadow between Stampede and Boca.

Not sure where CJ got his report, I saw 3-7 from the NWS and they are always off on the high side. Truckee had a trace and Squaw Valley....

It snowed last night and today but is breaking now, just a trace at lake level with maybe an inch or two at 7k feet. What little we got at Donner is melted and its currently 40 degrees and windy at Donner, the campground at Boca is snow free, hope that helps ;)
