Fishing Oroville Lake 10/13/2017

Postby Tom Gronwall » Fri Oct 13, 2017 2:44 pm

Finally got to get on the lake after a week of winds and fires. Launched at Bidwell about 6:35 am, stopped fishing as the breeze began at 10:30 am. Headed to potters ravine cove to dodge the early morning winds and glad I did. Found fish on the south side in the steep rocks, actually mostly on the banks between the rocks. Fish were fairly deep, most 25-35 foot range. a few close to 40 foot, but not all, LM were hanging along those wall today. Picked up 3 LM, 23 spots along this bank for 26 fished bagged today. For a while it was nearly every cast, with best location giving up 8 fish before they got spooked. Most fish were running the basic 13-13 1/2" with only one runt at 11". Best fish today, a 14 1/2" LM. Very few boats on the water, just me fishing this location. Interesting way the water people think, they have only let it drop 3 feet over the last week. Get the water low enough to shut down lime saddle, then barely drop the water levels!!!! interesting judgement!!!! obvious they could care less about the ramps for fisherman!

Thanks, best LM for me in the lake. Seems the LM population is improving slightly. Caught a dozen or so this year. Would Rather not talk baits :>)) but would say roboworms, light weights do well, presentation is the thing.

I do carolina rigs with McCoy stoppers, make the bait float around every lift, small #2 drop shot hooks, bend out point slightly.
