Free Magazine

Summer 2015 Hi, First I Would Like To Thank You All For Supporting Westernbass and Our Sponsors. As You All Know, Our Sponsors Is What Makes This Magazine And All The Content FREE To You !!! The heat of the summer has finally hit us! We’ve already enjoyed some of the annual summer events with the Yamamoto Big Bass Challenge on the Delta and the WON Bass California Open at Clear Lake and we still have several more to look forward to including the frog events. The California Delta will welcome TWO frog events this year. For 2015, the Snag Proof Open and Angler’s Press will hold separate frog events. The ever-popular, longstanding, ORIGINAL frog only event - the Snag Proof Open will blast off for its 14th annual tournament on the first weekend of August (1st and 2nd) as it always has. There are some changes to the Snag Proof Open format for this year. NEW for the anglers: - The event will be run by Randy Pringle and the BBT staff, who will be donating their time, allowing for a 100% entry fee payback. - Boat order will not be by signups. There will be a lottery draw for boat release order. - All entries received by July 15 will receive a FREE breakfast on Day 1 AND a FREE BBQ at weigh-in of Day 1. In this issue of the WesternBass.com Magazine, you will be able to find several tips to get a jump on your frog fishing as well as other summertime tips, tricks, techniques and other fishing news. STAY tuned to the site in mid-July as WesternBass will travel to Florida for the 2015 ICAST show. We will be there to keep you up to date on the latest and greatest industry innovations. Until then, enjoy the summer issue! Wayneg

Shasta Lake By Good morning Fans, and Happy 4th of July weekend! grin emoticon There has been a dramatic change in the weather this morning. Right now it is overcast, 77 degrees with 57% humidity and a few rain drops! There is a possibility of some scattered showers and even some of Mother Nature's fireworks later this evening. There is nothing like watching a good lightning and thunder show on the lake! grin emoticon It is going to be a perfect day for fishing, and spending all day on the lake without having to worry too much about getting burnt (at least this morning). Lake Level Report (07/3/2015 at 6 AM) Lake Elevation: 967.89' (99.11' below full pool) Lake Elevation (2014): 946.90' (120.10' below full pool) Storage: 2,187,398 af Storage (2014): 1,826,415 af Outflow: 5,391 cfs Inflow: 2,600 cfs Precipitation (24 hr @ dam): 0.00" Precipitation (Season @ dam): 49.43" Precipitation (2014 Season @ dam): 30.53"
Oroville Lake By The parking has been fixed at Lime Saddle for us old disabled fisherman. Wrote the state and complained and they moved the signs down, but short one post as it's been in the past. Walks up and a fraction better now for the early arriving fisherman. Launched early, 5:30 am trying to beat the heat. Got a couple in the ramp area, set of towards north fork. Opened the boat up at the bridge, got to the second point and the boat motor died, dead in the water. Of all days, no boats anywhere around, headed back with trolling motor, and a slight kick from the motor, as it would idle for a few minutes and then die. Did this all the way back to the ramp for the next couple hours. Fished the ramp area from about 8:30 am to 10 am and managed 17 fish, largest a 14" with most 12-13". Also got one 3-4 pound catfish. Damn hot day on the lake for those who really got to fish. Away till the motor gets looked at and fixed, then back fishing. Guessing 2 more weeks before the ramp closes due to low water.
