HOOD HUNTING FISHING
RUTH LAKE —Winter and spring trout ﬁshing here is consistent but spring bass ﬁshing is maybe the best in northern California... Ruth Lake is an little known gem and the best ﬁshing in the lake is between November and April
According to our fishing report, the bait of choice right now is salmon eggs and marshmallows ﬁshed in together, and the trout are more at areas where there is in ﬂow into the lake, especially at the south end where the Mad River pours in.
This time of year rainbows are the focus, but kokanee will grow to 19- and- 20 inch ﬁsh caught trolling during the summer and fall. Trolling is working right on top with all kinds of different lures—Super Dupers, Rooster Tails, Mepps.
There is a lot of natural feed in the lake, so there is no set rule for bait or lures, but meanwhile these ﬁsh grow girthy and are pink-meated.
Use our fishing map to see where to ﬁsh from both east and west shores on the extreme south end, and you can drive to right to those spots, at least through the end of April.
As the water warms and ﬁsh move deeper the best technique during the summer months is trolling, and the hotter it gets, the deeper trollers go, eventually working their way down to the north end and the dam.
Ruth Lake Marina has gas, bait and tackle Two USFS campgrounds are also available at the lake.
Bass Fishing is good at Ruth Lake!
According to out fish reports, Ruth Lake has become a really good bass lake, and the bass ﬁshing is fantastic in March and April when they spawn and spinnerbaits are a favorite for the mix of large and smallmouth, but jigs probably take majority of the ﬁsh overall.
Mister Twisters are good, and Gitz-lts in purple and gray. Rocky points and outcrops provide bass shelter and good ﬁshing areas, there is not a lot of other structure.
Our fishing report declares the west side of the lake is preferred over the east side, and and also the very upper end, but south end is also more shallow areas. Also, don’t neglect the catﬁsh ﬁshery at Ruth either!!
