|Happy New Year
from Big Daddy's Guide Service
2013 proved to be an
outstanding year on the Water her in Northeastern
California. Lake Almanor gave us some fantastic action on
trout and King Salmon, with solid numbers of Trophy Browns
including a 10.5 pounder for one lucky client. The Trophy
Mackinaw at Bucks Lake started a little slow but then came
on strong in May and early June with a number of fish over
the 20 pound mark. The newly added summer time Lake Tahoe
Mackinaw and Kokanee trips were a big hit, with solid Mack
action on the north shore and "lights out" Kokanee action
down south. Finally, wrapping up the year at Eagle Lake in
the fall, we proved there is still great fishing to be had
despite the low water. In addition to the standard light
tackle trolling trips, we also did a lot of shallow top
linning with flies. Slowly bouncing through the shallows
with the rod in your hand when one of those "freight train"
Rainbows grabs a hold and starts ripping line, its hard to
beat. Then there was the November fly fishing. It took a
little longer for the fish to move in due to the mild
weather but when they did it was ON! Eagle Lake produced
some of the best still water fly fishing you can find
anywhere in the world.
2014 is already shaping up to be
another great year of fishing, if you have been thinking
about a trip now is the time to get ahead of the game and
get your dates locked down. Those of you who are thinking
about Bucks Lake Mackinaw in May or Lake Almanor Browns in
March, don't wait, dates are already going fast.
