Why should you be interested in Fishing Donner Lake? Because Donner Lake holds some of the biggest Lake Trout in the state. There is also a good population of Rainbow Trout as well as Kokanee Salmon. In 2006 when Fishing Donner Lake for Kokanee we landed several Kokanee over 17”. Every year is a little different in regards to Kokanee size, regardless of the size Kokanee are some of the best eating fish out there. Donner Lakes cold water produces beautiful Kokanee. When Fishing Donner Lake fisherman often use downriggers to get to the depths that these fish can go too. During the Spring and Fall season, Lake Trout come to the top to feed and this is the only time of year one has the chance to hook a Laker in shallow water. Fishing Donner Lake is one of Captain Rick Kennedy of Tight Lines Guide Service favorite lakes. Donner Lake has plenty of facilities close for lodging and some outstanding restaurants. Donner Lake is easily accessed from Interstate 80.
