View Full Version : Lake Almanor Rainbow 3/12/07

Was going to head out to Collins Lake today, but read the report that GW_Extreme posted( :'(), *so decided to head to Lake Almanor instead. *Turned out to be a beautiful day, providing a complimentary sunburn to my face and neck; I guess I should've wore sunscreen! ;D

Anyway, fished for hours with no action, throwing almost everything we had at them to no avail. *Headed back to the launch area (Canyon Dam) and tried a few last casts with the fly-rod. *Ended up hooking 2 and landing 1 rainbow which measured 21".

Not too bad...

Another view...

Water temp ranged from 40 - 45 degrees. *Good luck to all!
