Fishing Oroville Lake 05/15/2018

Postby Tom Gronwall » Tue May 15, 2018 9:47 am

Could not sleep, so got an early launch at 5:30 am, fished to 9:30 am. Started trying to catch more crappie, but dam, no luck at all, fished about an hour, different lures, depths, you name it, nothing, so gave up and looked for spots. Picked up 28 spots today, avoiding any shallow fish as dinks are everywhere. Best fish today, right at 16", one 15" and a nice 14 3/4". Most all others were 13-13 1/2" and 4-5 10-12". Fish seem to all be skinny now, having spawned and no fat bellies with eggs. Water has hit the high mark at 824.11 on 5/11/18 and has been dropping now 1/10 to 3/10 of a foot every since, so lake fairly stable now along with the bite. Water hit the 70 degree mark, and will be warming every day now till we hit the 80 degree mark, maybe higher!!.
