Bass Lake Fishing

    • 559-288-8100

Plan a day or two of fishing on your next visit to Bass Lake. With bruiser Bass and king sized Kokanee, Bass Lake is full of great family fishing memories waiting for you.

Fishing at Bass Lake has created lasting memories for many since the dam was built in 1896 and the lake was named Crane Valley Reservoir. The lake was known as Bass Lake only after having to be replanted by Bass Lake Lumber Company when they polluted the lake, killing all of the fish many years ago. BLLC restocked the lake with Bass. Since then it's been stocked with Trout, Kokanee Salmon, Catfish, Crappie and Bluegill. The warm surface water of 75 to 78 degrees in the summer draws many boaters of all types including Salmon fishing boats with black booms hanging over the sides loaded with fishing poles driving slow in the deep end of the lake. The black booms extending out from the boats are downriggers. They allow the fishermen to fish deep enough to catch the salmon and trout in the cold water 30-100 feet deep. In 1982 when Kokanee Salmon were introduced to the lake it created a great summertime fishery, something the lake needed to fill the gap when water temp prohibits trout stocking. Summertime is Kokanee salmon season and Bass Lake is home to some of the largest Kokanee in the state every year.  Plan a day or two of fishing on your next visit to Bass Lake. With bruiser Bass and king sized Kokanee, Bass Lake is full of great family fishing memories waiting for you.
