Fishing Oroville Lake 05/17/2017

Postby Tom Gronwall » Wed May 17, 2017 2:47 pm

Got launched about 6am at Lime Saddle, stopped fishing right at 10:15am. Today, one of the rare days without blowing winds this morning, dead calm, kind of spooky! Water cooled a lot, down to 62-64 all the places I fished. Bite was good, but not as good as my last trip, caught 29 spots, 2 at 14 1/2", with most around the 13" range and 1 dink about 6". Surprised, water dropping lots, down 14.07 feet from my trip last week. Think they are running the lake in the scared mode still, letting out twice the water coming in. Seems they never consider spawn when dumping water the way they are. Can't figure out why they do this, the way they do. Wood cleaned up a lot, hardly any but a few logs still floating around, be careful.
