Fishing Oroville Lake 08/08/2017

Postby Tom Gronwall » Tue Aug 08, 2017 3:46 pm

Got launched at 5:30 am at Lime Saddle, stopped fishing at 10 am as it began to warm up. Decent day, caught 23, surprise, caught a large mouth, so excited, forgot to measure it, looks to be about 13 1/2" or so. Small fish plentiful, about half the fish 12" size, the other half 13" to 14 1/2" as my best for the day. Picked up fish to 45 feet, mostly 20-35 feet. Hot water not helping the bite, high 82 degrees, mostly 81 degrees. Thought I had a giant spot for a second, weight, no fight!! catfish hit a roboworm, soon as it hit bottom. Guessing dropped it right in front of his mouth! Water beginning a faster drop, 1 foot a day, but twice a week 2 foot drops. Guess they are going for that 700 foot mark sooner then later.
