Day 4 Donner
Well ended the trip with a visit to Donner, which I never fished, but mark has. So We got there around 9am to the boat launch and it was exactly as everyone has said, it's a rough looking boat launch.

Sounds like a good way to spend 4 days! The pics from the various lakes are great. Glad to hear that Almanor is kicking out some nice sized fish. Going to try and get up there in the next couple of weeks. With oroville coho red hot bite and the stripers coming on it makes for a difficult decision on which way to go.

Very nice pics and sounds like you guys had a great time!! To bad Donner did not produce any fish for you guys. We usually start fishing Donner around Memorial Day Weekend. Fishing is usually pretty good there for DFG Planters and some small Macks!! Thanks for sharing your trip with us.

Fishon!!!
