We are excited to be able to offer access to Luk Lake, formerly known as Coffee Cup Lake, a great wintertime and springtime rainbow trout destination and year 'round bass fishery.

Luk Lake is a 65+ acre lake conveniently located just minutes from Interstate 5 in Corning, California, behind the Rolling Hills Casino. The lake's varied shoreline is lined with vegetation and flanked by the rolling golden hillsides of the Central Valley. Its low-elevation location keeps the lake waters (and outside air temperatures) moderate and comfortable throughout the winter and spring, providing ideal habitat for rainbow trout until the water temperatures grow too warm in the summertime. All year, however, Luk Lake exemplifies ideal bass habitat. It's not at all uncommon to land trophy sized bass, sunfish, and rainbow trout all in the same day at Luk Lake!

There is a boat launch for anglers who choose to use their own float tubes. You are also welcome to launch your own small boats (14 feet long or less) if you prefer. Gas motors are not allowed, but electric trolling motors are acceptable. There are also boats available to rent at the lake. Regular row-boats rent for $25 a day, while the 16 foot drift boat rents for $40 a day.

Luk Lake is over 65 acres in size, with numerous coves, peninsulas, and weedbeds. The thick shoreline weeds provide ample cover and vegetation for the lake's resident bass and sunfish, and also provide food for cruising rainbow trout in the wintertime. Trout fishermen find that fishing small midge dry flies and midge clusters can be productive throughout the wintertime, as well as dead drifting midge patterns under indicators. Stripping small streamers and damselfly nymphs can be very productive, and also creates opportunities to catch bass. In the warmer months, fishing damselfly adults, dragonflies, frogs, mice, and bass poppers can all be productive for the lake's bigger bass.

We have secured and booked the lodge for the evening of the 13th

The lodge is an easy 5 minute stroll – away from the lake, nestled amid a grove of towering eucalyptus trees. This 5 bedroom, 2 bath ranch-style building featuring 11 beds (4 bedrooms with two twin beds each and one room with 3 twin beds), kitchen, and comfortable sitting room. The total cost for the lodge is $300 and this will be shared among the folks that stay.
