Set your sites on these three unbeatable fishing lakes in California this summer, and you may just find a new favorite spot.
Lake Almanor — Plumas County
Just the sight of Lake Almanor, with its pristine waters and towering mountain backdrop, will make you want to plan a return trip. You’ll find that this lake in northern California is packed with rainbow trout and smallmouth bass. Park your RV at the Almanor Campground to enjoy easy access to some of the state’s best fishing as well as the Lassen Volcanic National Park. From fishing, swimming and boating to hiking and sightseeing, you’ll never run out of things to do at Lake Almanor.
Lake Tahoe — El Dorado County
Lake Tahoe is easy to access for California and Nevada residents who live close to the border. The Lake is so massive that it’s surrounded by four counties — El Dorado, Douglas, Placer and Washoe. And if you thought the scenery was impressive at Lake Almanor, you’ll be even more impressed with what you find at this famous fishing spot. Be prepared to catch plenty of mackinaw, rainbow trout, jumbo brown trout and kokanee. Don’t forget to get a taste of the area’s other unbeatable outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, paddleboarding and rafting.
Lake Shasta — Shasta County
Lake Shasta, also known as Shasta Lake, is one of the most diverse areas to fish in the state. It’s a reservoir within the Whiskeytown–Shasta–Trinity National Recreation Area that offers an abundance of crappie, catfish, smallmouth bass, sturgeon, redear sunfish, bluegill, green sunfish, trout, largemouth bass, king salmon and a variety of others. If you’re looking to catch more than your fill this summer, there’s no better place to be than Lake Shasta.
