Frenchman Lake Report - Courtesy Wiggin's Trading Post (530) 993-4683

We have had excellent reports of fishing at Frenchman Lake. It has really began to pick up this past week with reports of people doing good at the dam and the north end of the lake.
Fly fisherman have been having great success around Turkey Point early mornings. Almost every report limiting out. Reports of light colored Wooly Buggers, copper & light brown, appear to be attracting the fish. Also one fisherman suggested Sheep Creek flies are working great. The cold temperatures are causing the fish to come into the shallows to feed in the mornings until the temperatures rise.
Brian, a local, came in looking for Brown Wooly Buggers. He said he caught 2 nice rainbow before 10 am on a midge at the north end of the lake. They were 18 inches long average.
Friday, November 20th, John from Reno, NV caught a total of 8 rainbow at the Dam. He released 3 of them and said all fish averaged from 15-17 inches in length. Also noting that he too had best of luck in the early morning.
