Frenchman Lake is a deep manmade impoundment, located about 20 miles west of Davis Lake and approximately seven miles north of the town of Chilcoot, California. This is a good place to try if Davis is off. Managed as a put-and-take fishery, Frenchman receives hundreds of thousands of stockers each year. It is also subject to windy conditions and cold weather, befitting an alpine setting of more than 5,000 feet in elevation. Type of Fish: Rainbow and brown trout. This eTrail covers the "where, when, and how" to fish in this region. You'll get a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to bring, and the best flies to use.
