Lake Reports

California Delta
California Delta By Launched early at Paradise. Low outgoing and bottomed out at 7am, then incoming, but water was colder and very low. Idled down to our usual spots and waited for daybreak. Threw topwater (Plopppers, Choppos, frog) and managed a few juveniles but no keeper size. Water was 68 degrees and ambient air was much cooler than it's been. Was wondering if this might affect the bite (windows). Long and short of it is that despite all the positive reports, we only caught 3 keeper size and many many 8-12"ers on ploppers. A couple on dropshot, a couple on stick worms, nothing on Ned, a few on squarebill cranks in shad, pumpkinseed (Livetarget), and flatside craws. All of our favorite spots were not producing. Chatted with a couple other guys in bass boats and they said same; speculated the cooled weather change and dropped water temp may have locked their jaws. By 10am, I was still alternating and throwing a plopper 90 and squarebill and hooking up with 11"-13"ers and only a couple that were 14"+, but far and few between. It was not the hotcakes all the youtube reports are pushing, but I'm not doubting them, today was just not like it's been the past couple weeks. Maybe it's US and where/how we chose to fish.... I wouldn't doubt that one bit. Still had fun catching the ones we did, but was expecting a better day based on previous reports....always our luck we go out when weather or something drastically changes; well, that's just my theory. Off the water by noon and glad of it!!
