    Report: Spent the last week at tulloch and was airly impressed with the ishing. Past years were never very succesul. Despite the 100 degree weather and ishing in the heat o the aternoon we caught some nice small mouth bass. we never caught a whole bunch but ususally about 5 or 6 in a ew hours or so, some o our biggest topped out around three pounds. We used live crawlers and when we ran out switched to 4 inch dark blue worms. Both worked well but we caugh more bluegill with the crawlers. Those ish seemed to bite almost as hard as the bass and also cost us a bunch o worms but it was a good time. we also saw some huge carp so i there are any bow isherman here have at it.
    City: Visalia

    Tips: we ished near shore letting the worms sit in about 8 eet o water our biggest ish came in about 20 eet so theyre all over.

    Report: Got a late start (11:00 a.m.) and only ished 'til 3 or so, but had a beautiul day on the water. We ished both Green and Black creeks, using cranks, s/baits and 4" Senkos. Managed 4 small bass, but only 3 would have made it to the scales. I spoke with several other ishermen, and it appeared they weren't haven't great success either.Since I primarily ish the Delta, Tulloch is like a dierent world. No current....clear water....looong 5 MPH zones, and multitudes o "mansions".Think I'll stick to the Delta.
