Cal Neva point, Sugar Pine point , Dollar Point , and the south shore shelf's are all heavily loaded with mackinaw lake trout . They are stuffed to the gills with shrimp, crawdads , and Kokanee Salmon . Dodgers and flashers trailed with a minnow are highly effective right now bouncing the bottom slowly. start in 80 feet and progress to 200 feet are the depths trolled for success . Morning is better than afternoon . Cave Rock , Lake Forrest , and Sand Harbor are open now. For more information call Gene St. Denis (530) 544-6552 Blue Ribbon Fishing Charters.
