    Report: ished the entire labor day weekend at Oroville ished the morning and the evening rom 6am to 12pm then again at 5pm to 9pm. Saturday morning I ished the ork that heads to poe's dam the green bridge and stay right.I ound tHAT THE LAKE HAD DROPPED A TON since I had last been on it in June. I threw a buzzer and my buddy threw a spook, he popped one in the 2lb range. I stayed with the buzzer or about 35min put it down or a spitting image since its smaller and can be worked like a spook. We were able to start picking up more ish. The biggest was only weighed in at 2.25 and the smallest was 11 oz, we caught a totally o 5 ish that top water bite we only stuck with it till about 930 then threw it only by trees or signiicant structure. I then switched to a watermelton yamamoto jig on a 1/4oz wieght and began to get on them again my buddy threw a ox blood on a darter head same wieght and we were then keying in on the banks with the muddy line or turbulant water this held the bigger 1.5 up to 4lb ish they were on the bank I mean within a oot. The ish were either there or not they would hit it with in an second or two o the bait entering the water. I picked up ish out in to as deep as 25 eet with a split shoot and a morning dawn no chartruse. This pattern held threw to Sunday only with less o a top water bite and the size o ish got smaller.Sunday We ished the middle ork same technic's
    City: Granite Bay

    Tips: As or a weekend bite thats not busy as labor day I would say that the ish should start going into a all bite pattern. I ishing a rock bank with the muddy water toss it in the areas that look good trees protruding rock this held the ish the spinner and crank I couldn't pick em up on it stay with light line and natural colors till the water temp drops into the 60's

    Report: Fished Oro on Sat and Sun. Early morning rip ish are available,and even a ew on poppers. As the sun hits the water any light-hued worms or grubs will provide good numbers o ish.Jigs in brown or browm/purple take a ew nice ish worked throughcreek channels, as well. When the wind is blowing in the morning,the crank-bite is absolutely on ire, and will continue intothe aternoon as long as the wind blows. The crank ish areound tight to the bank at times, but most are caught >20 eeto, down around 10 eet deep.

    Report: Fished Oroville or the irst time this weekend. On riday aternoon ishing was great. They were hammering everything I threw. Could see a lot o good ish in shallow water. Water was at 75 degrees. Through the weekend the ishing got worse. Water was dropping about a degree a day andished moved deeper and bites were less requent. Best consistent ish I ound were some three pound male spots that seemed to be guarding beds in about 18 eet o water around willows on lats.Caught them draging Black Zoom lizards.
    City: Brentwood

    Tips: Best baits besides the lizards were lukes, white spinners, and cotton candy 4" curly tale worms. On Sunday ish were not biting. I stuck on a very small spinner (Single colorado blabe and a hook) to ish or blue gill. Smalls and spots hammered it.
