Fishing Oroville Lake 07/12/2018

Postby Tom Gronwall » Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:20 am

Good to be back on the lake, skipped last week due to the 4th crowds. Got launched about 5:30 am at Lime Saddle and found a decent bite at the end of the point, right under the gas dock, picking up 11 fish in about an hour. Best 2 fish of the day from this location, right at 14 1/2" and 14", all fish 28-35 feet of water. Moved on to the N. Fork and found schooling fish in 30 feet of water, with a giant boulder they were hanging on. This second stop gave up another 10-12 fish, one right after the other. Hit 2 more locations and ended up with 37 fish for the morning, before calling it a day at 9:15 am. About half the fish the 13-13 1/2" range, the other half the smaller 11-12" range runts. Overall, great trip and lots of action, even though no real big fish, so typical in the summer. Found a bear out for a swim on the way to N. Fork area. He or she was huffing and puffy while swimming, but made it to shore and off it went.

I use to fish Oroville a lot and use to throw a cut tail in white with silver flake. It makes the smelt in the lake.
They dont make that color anymore but find something in the 3 1/2 in range in white and you'll smoke em. Im talking 60 fish days.

A little popper on points will smoke them also.
This is the worm I was talking about. I used the 3 1/2 in ones but those are gone. Its the blue silver one. Rig on a 1/16oz darter head.
