Lake Mendocino, CA

Loaded with a nice variety of warm-water fish species, Lake Mendocino is a 1,920 acre reservoir, located in the northwestern part of the state, at Calpella. Striped bass are the big draw here as they are caught in good size and numbers. Largemouth and smallmouth bass are also favored species. Catfish, crappie, bluegill and sunfish also swim in these waters. About ten miles of shoreline wrap this fertile fishery. Anglers choosing to fish from the bank can find plenty of places to wet a line. Boating access is available at the North Ramp by Kyen Campground off Highway 20, and at the South Ramp off Lake Mendocino Drive. Both are excellent launch ramps with plenty of parking and rest rooms. Fishing is not permitted at the boat ramps.
