      Report: We had heard the ish'in had been slow, so ater a healthy breakast at Adel's onto the lake we went or two days o work. Started out the morning around the dam throwing top water and ripp'in. Caught numerous ish in a short period o time, un, but all were pups, 1 lb. to 1.5 lbs. Moved on up the river into Cherry where we spent the better part o the day, better quality ish to 4 lbs., however, ew and ar between bites. Everything was right except or the bite. Fish are currently chasing schools o bait out in deeper water. Finaly got on a spinner bait bite Monday mid-day ater three hours Sunday with no success. Over-all we ound ew ish staying home and the ones that did took a-lot o work getting them to open their mouths or inesse baits etc... Noticed only two other bass boys willing to venture onto the lake over the two days we were there. In case you were wondering, it was only a zoo on Monday since Sunday was spent back in a creek.

      Tips: I did catch suspended ish with blades on the outer timber, however, about the only thing we didn't try was spooning or suspended ish in the outer timber. I someone gives it a try please let me know i it works out, curiosity has got the cat. Good Luck and happy hook'in!

      Report: The bass where biting quite good today. I landed 4 - 3+lb ish and one 5.5 lb ish. Saw some blue gill action also or the kids. Basically had a great day.
      City: San Ramon

      Tips: Get there in the early morning beore the jet skis and speed boats arrive. 4-5 am is a good time to start then you get some good uninterupted ishing in the main lake. I like to use dark purple and blue rubber worms with the twisty tails. Slip sinker on the nose 1/4 oz. let it drop in at the shore line and slowly jig it in to the boat.
