Lassen Trout Farm has created a gold mine in the trout fishing market in the local lakes of California that stock this magnificent and highly sought after prized trout.These uniquely modified rainbow trout are golden in color with a bright red stripe down their sides and a bright red gill plate. They are easy to spot for sight fishermen that like to target fish with grubs and trout mini jigs. They are super bright in the water, like neon lights shooting through the water. The meat of the fish resembles that of a salmon with it’s pink tint. They are truly a beautiful, great fighting trout, and also a great eating trout with lots of flavor. Lightning Trout at Lake Amador and Lake CamancheLake Amador and Lake Camanche both stock Lightning trout as part of their lake stocking programs. Fishing Techniques for Lightning TroutSince this is a stocked fish, powerbait will work pretty good to target these fish. Powerbait can be fished from the bottom with a sinker and a regular small sized treble hook, or from a bobber or float with a sinking hook like a catfish dough bait hook. Lures such as a small imitation minnow like Rapalas, kastmasters, trout spoons, these multi pack trout lure kits, and my personal favorite, the trout mini jig will also work great to catch Lightning Trout.
