Fisherman have been having great luck fishing at Frenchman Lake this past week. Night-crawlers remain to be the #1 choice of bait although some have been having good success using lures & powerbait.
April 16th, Steve Penrose & family of three from Reno, NV caught 7 beautiful trout near the dam. They were using Kastmaster lures.
April 16th, two locals, Bud & Shortie caught 6 rainbows close to 2lbs. They were fishing near the dam using pink powerbait & worms.
April 20th, Dustin Scoville, age 10 from Portola, Ca caught two nice sized rainbows at the dam. One was 17" & the other was 14". He was using night-crawlers.
The boat ramps are not in but you can launch a boat at Frenchman's Campground & people have been having great luck fishing from boat! Chilcoot, Frenchman, & Spring Creek campgrounds are all open for camping. Big Cove & Cottonwood are not open yet.
Reminder this coming weekend, Saturday April 30th, streams open! Stop on into Wiggin's Trading Post for a refreshing drink, a freshly made sandwich, and/or to just browse around. We appreciate your business.
