Local anglers agree that fall is the best time of year for German Browns in Lake Almanor. Come wet a line along the East Shore and bring your favorite flies and lures.  Local guide Allen Shephard says fishing the top this time of year pays off in big Browns time and again. Make no mistake the  Rainbows and famous local Eagle Lake trout will be biting too. Got bait? The Small Mouth Bass are ready for the “fish on” fight as well. Pack your tackle box and lucky hat, grab your favorite rod and reel and come fish fabulous Lake Almanor.

Fall fun in this neck of the woods always includes several hunting options.  Archery and rifle hunts for mule and black tail deer are the name of the game for the big game fanatics in search of that towering rack and a tender venison steak. For those that prefer the challenges of bird hunting in the woods pheasants and mountain quail abound. Call out the big boys and drag out the big guns, its hunting season at Lake Almanor.
