Each year, Lake Jennings stocks 34,000 pounds of fish (26,000
pounds of trout and 8,000 pounds of channel catfish).
The trout fishing season begins in mid October and lasts until
the end of March, while the catfish season coincides with
our night fishing program beginning in May and running through
Labor Day weekend in September.
This year, we will be stocking Mt. Lassen's "Sierra Bow"
Rainbow Trout. If you have not read about the new "Sierra
Bow" this is an outstanding fish. The trout are a ruby
red meat for a great taste and are full-finned, which produces
a stronger fight.
The trout season starts with an initial stock of 1,000 pounds,
followed by an additional 1,000 pounds each week throughout
the season. During trout season, the lake is open Friday,
Saturday and Sunday, though registered campers can fish seven
days a week from the shoreline below the campground.
Keep in mind that hours change slightly throughout the season,
opening 30 minutes before sunrise and closing 30 minutes past
sunset. For catfish season (night fishing), we stock an initial
plant of 1,000 pounds and add another 1,000 pounds every 15
days throughout the season. During this time, the lake is
also open until midnight every Friday and Saturday. With hot
summer days, this is the place to be for a relaxing warm night
of fishing, boating or just enjoying a meal in one of our
picnic areas around the lake.
