The trolling was not productive. We finally drifted inflated crawlers for 2 limits. All the same size about 2-3lbs. That was the first time we have tried it here and the first time in the past month that we caught more than 2 fish. I did lose a big one when my brand new rapala sr5 had one one the hooks on the treble straighten out. It hit so hard I thought it was a snag until I saw it jump out of the water behind the boat. Had it on for another 30 sec. then goodbye http://www.imhooked.com/forumsyabb/Templates/Forum/default/undecided.gif.

These Lassen Sierra Bows are so nice. Really pink meat and great tasting. They sell them @ Nob Hill and can barely keep them in stock. Someone told me they are a hybrid of trout and Coho salmon. I looked it up on the internet and when checking the Lassen website couldn't get any info except for the fact that they are specially bred to look like salmon meat, but their method is a trade secret.

Tbruski,thanks for the update on chabot,ya never know about that lake,looks like you got it figuered out!!!
Nice lookin fish,sure don't look like your typical dfg planters.
To bad about loseing the big one,lot of people change out the factory hooks before they will put a rapala in the water for that very reason.
Good Luck next next time out.......Don

Lassen trout are triploids. The eggs are heated to sterilize them so that as they grow, food resources are not spent on reproducing but freed up to focus on growth. That's what accounts for their larger sizes. They're not responding to trolling at Chabot yet. Toss and wait seems the way to go. Congrats on your limit, it hasn't been easy lately. :) I might go out on Tuesday if I can clear enough work off my plate.

Nice looking fish! I went two weeks ago but it was really slow. My guess is because the water is pretty cold (I think about 48 deg at the surface) Were you fishing deep by the dam?
