Lake Chabot_Rainbow Trout

GENERAL CONDITIONS

Water level is about 85%. Trout fishing is starting to pick back up again. Limits of trout are starting to come out of Chabot again. Fishing is slowly starting to pick back up again as more and more reports of fish are coming in again. Several nice size trout were pulled out today including a couple 4 lbs. being caught over by Raccoon Point. We are experiencing some warm weather conditions this week so fishing will pick back up. We planted 750 lbs. of trout on the 30th. Water temperature remains in the low 50’s and water clarity is about 3 feet visibility. The visibility of the water should clear up in the next couple of days depending on the weather.

All of our boats are half off Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursdays!

CATFISH
Catfishing is slow this time of the year, but there was a couple catfish reported getting caught this past week. Typically catfishing this time of the year is fairly slow. Catfishing conditions will improve when the water temperature starts to warm back up.

TROUT
Limits of trout is keeping anglers busy again. Several nice size limits are reported getting caught again. Out last plant was 750 lbs. back on the 30th of March. Both trolling and fishing the shorelines have been doing well. The first dock on the west shore trail have been keeping anglers busy in the morning and trolling across from Raccoon Point have been doing the trick. Trolling seems to be the best bet by trolling a Firetiger Rapala close to the shore near across from Raccoon point. Please follow our facebook page to keep updated on fishing conditions.

BASS
With the warm weather we are expecting this week, bass fishing should be great. Bass fishing already has been steady for the last several weeks with some bass anglers catching and releasing good numbers. If you do want to try your luck a couple good spots to fish for bass are near the island or in bass cove using a drop shot rig. Please practice catch and release for bass, as they are not stocked into the lake and their population depends on you!
