Today is sunny and beautiful and our 2nd private Trout plant is coming this afternoon.  The last plant brought many catches as they pictures will testify.  Robert & his lovely bride Naomi spent their Valentine’s Day camping here and caught a stringer of Trout.  Most of them looked to be 3 lbs.  and they trolled the lake for them.

Mica Fish Jr. & his family got 2 Trout and had tons of fun bringing their little McKenna on “her 1st” camping trip to Collins Lake.  Good thing he didn’t leave the kids home cause they caught all the fish!!!!

Rachael, Nickie, Marty & Eddie of Marysville took home an 8 Trout stringer and the biggest Rainbow on that stringer was a 2 lb. 8 oz. They trolled near the beach running a jointed Rapala  10 ft. down

EZ ED  caught the BIGGEST TROUT by the spillway from the shoreline this week. His prize weighed in at 5 lbs.  and he used chartreuse power bait.

The next biggest Trout was caught by a little guy from Brownsville name Jacob Goodnight. Jacob and his Dad troll here quite frequently and use worms.  Jacob’s fish was a 3 lb. 12 oz. German Brown Trout, probably one that we planted about five years ago, they are reaching around 3 to 4 pounds and we have seen several of the caught already.

Mike Egan of Sacramento was the only one who caught a fish so far this morning in his secret spot down by the dam. He used yellow power bait and his sister Erin helped him hold up his whopper!!

Thanks to Big Ed Everhart for sending us the pictures of him and Jim Chisea of Penn Valley.  They spent Jim’s birthday here fishing for Bass and Jim caught the biggest one!  Jim’s hawg weighed 5 lb. 2 oz. and it was a Spotted Bass to boot. He was tossing a hollow bodied swimbait in less than 10 feet of water in Elmer’s Cove.  They caught some other smaller ones and used brown worms with orange & brown skirts (on the east side).

Please feel free to send your fish pictures to and I will publish them on the fishing report for you. Travis Hollon sent a picture of his little girl Charlie who helped him catch his Catfish at the bridge.

Captain Bob of Sonoma & his 1st mate Dusty landed a stringer of 4 Rainbow Trout and Dusty’s was the biggest one. As a matter of fact Dusty caught 3 and the biggest was a 2 lb. 12 oz. Rainbow and he trolled a fire tiger colored Cripplure.  Captain Bob caught a buzz and one tiny little Trout-job well done Captain.

Tyler Prettyman of Vacaville was proud to show off his 3 lb. Rainbow (his 1st Fish) using  power eggs in front of his campsite. Congrats to Tyler, that is a huge fish buddy!!!

Gabriel Jupina used live crawdads and limited out on BASS in ELMER’S COVE just last Sunday. That’s what I’ve been told is a HOT SPOT for BASS right now – in less than 10 feet of water.

We have 20 feet to go before the water reaches the spillway, we are at 63% capacity. The water clarity is great considering all the recent rains.  We are looking forward to reaching full capacity this year according to the Farmer’s Almanac and other resources we are supposed to have a “wet March”.
