Bucks Lake Canoe, Kayak, SUP & Kayak Fishing Information
Nestled against the backdrop of the Plumas National Forest and rimmed with towering pines, lies Bucks Lake. The mountain setting sets the mood for an ideal kayak, camping or fishing outing. Tall pines, a crystal clear water and clean mountain air are just a few of the natural assets of this beautiful destination.
The stunning scenery with forest and mountain backdrops, plenty of wild life, are just of few of the enticing features of Buck Lake. Maybe I lucked out and went the perfect time, but Bucks Lake was one of the best kayak trips I've ever been on.
The campsites were far apart and there was very few people when I paddled here. With 17 miles of shoreline, sandy beaches and tall pines, Bucks Lake attracts kayakers, anglers, and watersports enthusiasts in the summer months. If you don't have a kayak, you can rent one from Bucks Lake Marina, and paddle this beautiful haven. The area offers year-round recreation opportunities, making it a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts.Kayak fishing for trophy rainbow trout, salmon and mackinaw particularly in Lower Bucks Lake, is very good.
