Lake Reports

Oroville Lake
Oroville Lake By Lake Oroville has been fishing great for the last 3 weeks, 40-70 fish days are very common right now and its a great time to get the kids on fish during the cooler hours of the morning and evening! Most all of the fish are done with the spawn with only a few stragglers left behind that are in the upper stretches of the middle fork and north fork. As most cases with Oroville the average fish is a spot between 1.25lbs and 2lbs. Top baits for numbers have been 5" Baby Bass and Natural Shad senkos, 6" Roboworms in Oxblood light red flake and Warmouth fished on a Dart head or shakey head and of course the 2.8" Keitech in Rainbow shad and Tennessee shad have produced very many fish lately. There have reports of several big large mouth being caught and a couple spots in the 4lb class, most of the bigger fish caught recently have been taken on top water baits like the River 2 Sea Rover, Vixen and the Rio Rico during the low light hours. we expect to see the deeper crankbait bite fire off any day now as there are many fish heading off shore to points, breaks and relating to the pond smelt. Top areas of the lake have been the South fork, upper stretch of the North Fork and the west Branch, expect the mouths of the arms to get better as we get deeper into summer and the night bite to be good with the next moon. Its getting very hot so be prepared with lots of water and sunscreen and be on the look out for other recreational boaters, the heat has brought all the wakeboard boats out so keep an eye open. Be safe and good luck! Lake Oroville is currently at 812' Lime Saddle Marina, Bidwell Canyon and Loafer creek launch ramps are all open as of now.
