NORTH COAST RIVERS

North Coast streams and rivers are regulated by low flow closures. Always call ahead to determine the condition of the river you want to fish. If not mentioned, the river is closed or no reports. The DFG’s Low Flow Closure Hotline for north coast rivers is 707) 822-3164. For the Russian River and counties of Mendocino, Sonoma and Marin, call (707) 944-5533. South Central Coast streams number is (831) 649-2886. Many streams closed, and others change to artificial/barbless only on March 31 and others on April 25.

ROGUE RIVER, Lower, Ore.-The spring run of kings just keeps on coming, moving straight on upriver due to good river conditions, and anglers at anchor in the traveling lanes are still doing well on mint-bright kings, some to 40 pounds, according to WON Field Reporter Dave Pitts. It’s expected that the fall run of fish will begin coming into the bay while the springs run trails off, for non-stop action up here in months to come. Guide and WON Field Reporter Curtis Palmer of River Secrets Guide Service concurred, saying it has been very good fishing for spring Chinook still, with very little pressure from anglers. The river was on a constant drop all week and visibility cleared to 4 feet on Saturday.

ROGUE RIVER, Grant’s Pass-Spring run kings are in the entire river from the mouth to the top, and anglers are finding them after doing their “due diligence”.

RUSSIAN RIVER-The river is down and flowing normally, and there’s still a “little bit of shad fishing but it’s slowing down,” according to Nick Wheeler of King’s Sport and Tackle. He said there were some good days here and there. The summer dams are going up Tuesday (already up by the time you read this). The summer smallmouth bite is getting better, and when the dams go in the lakes behind them will produce even better activity on the smallmouth. Also, the tail end of the shad will get caught in pockets behind the dams, and there should be a few good days of activity before that ends.

UMPQUA RIVER, Main Stem, Roseburg, Oregon –By the middle of the week the river will be in shape for some of the best shad fishing a fisherman can find in the state, according to WON Field Reporter Curtis Palmer of River Secrets Guide Service. The river is dropping nicely and as it starts to drop under the 5.5-foot mark, the river will get back it’s visibility. The Popcorn Hole is a ¼-mile downstream from the Umpqua boat ramp, and driftboats with a motor are a favorite here for a couple reasons. First being, they take up less room and the other is because they can run back up to the boat amp where a person put in and load back up to go home, Palmer said.

UMPQUA RIVER, North Fork, Glide, Oregon –The river has been running high and that has made it hard for most bank anglers to catch a spring-run Chinook during the last week, according to Curtis Palmer of River Secrets Guide Service, and WON Field Reporter. There have been a small selection of boats on the uppermost section of the river and they have been doing well fishing the soft edges.

TRINITY-KLAMATH RIVERS

KLAMATH RIVER, Iron Gate-Salmonflies have started hatching in good numbers and anglers should make the trip quickly before the hatch ends. So far, it’s been mostly a nymph bite, but dry flies should be working well any time now.

KLAMATH RIVER, Klamath Glen-The river has dropped into near-perfect shape, and anglers are averaging about 2 springrun Chinooks per boat plus a couple that come unpinned. Try CV-7 spinners in chartreuse and green until the water clears a bit more.
Then go to brass and chartreuse. Fish ranging between 9 and 20 pounds with a few in the 30’s. Starwin and Blake’s riffles are two of the better spots.

TRINITY RIVER-The Trinity River release is now down to 2,000 cfs, still high, but now on the edge of being fishable for salmon. A few fish are now coming out of the Grays Falls area on roe and tuna balls.

NORTH SALTWATER

BERKELEY-Scott Sutherland at Berkeley Sportfishing reported a tough weekend, with high winds and muddy waters hampering bay efforts, but a few big ‘buts caught anyway, including a 26 pounder on the New Easy Rider. The New El Dorado III was one of the first to report in on the opening day of bottomfishing, his 20 anglers getting limits of rockfish and a 10-pound lingcod. Captain James Smith on the California Dawn reported some of the best conditions of the season, but action that didn’t compare with last year at this time. Still, his three trips with Sep Hendrickson’s California Sportsman Radio produced some good halibut and stripers for the listeners who fished.

BODEGA BAY- While not off the hook, the local bottomfishing opener offered a needed option for the anglers here, with salmon getting tougher and the wind a constant nag. Most anglers that worked at it got their rockfish limits, and a few scored a lingcod.

BROOKINGS, OR- King fishing remained slow, with a few commercial boats finding some deep fish, but the sport boats missing. Some silvers are in the area, and even bottomfishing anglers have released some incidentally caught. The wind has been a problem, particularly later in the day, but when the ocean permits, rockfish limits are the rule, and most boats get a ling or two.

EMERYVILLE-Tough conditions in the Bay made for low halibut and bass counts, but at least rockfish and lingcod opened on Sunday, and most of the boats tried for the Farallones targeting the bottomfish. The results were limits for most, but a few returned with less than full sacks because they didn’t fish much… seasickness. There was a 30-pound octopus boated, and most boats had at least a couple lingcod.

EUREKA-Wind continued to hamper most outside action, and warm water temperatures of 56 to 58 degrees means tough salmon conditions. There were some night surfsmelt netted when the ocean calmed, and a few day fish are starting to show. Surfperch is an option at the bottom of the tide when the ocean is calmest, with Samoa and Centerville beaches best. The minus tides provided good access for clammers, some finding jumbo horsenecks in the bay.

FORT BRAGG-Wind kept the landing quiet most of the week. Bottomfishing, salmon, and abalone are all open. As soon as a summer weather pattern sets in, the action on all fronts should improve.

HALF MOON BAY-The weekend action was much improved, and on Sunday, the boats could fish in local waters, which meant no long runs south for rockfish. Salmon is also open, but not much has been happening there either.

LOCH LOMOND-Captain Gordon Hough on the Morning Star reported better than expected action on live bait trips considering the tides, with some good flatties caught at the Marin Islands, Raccoon Straights and Brooks Island. Still some stripers showing up in the catch despite the focus on halibut. His anglers had several fish in the 12- to 14-pound class.

SAUSALITO-Most of the effort remained in the bay for halibut and striped bass. The New Ray Ann has been scoring some halibut and stripers, including a 12-pound bass and a 10-pound halibut on recent trips.

SUISUN BAY-Sturgeon fishing is still an option for anglers here, as long as you can dodge the wind. Top bets have been the Mothball Fleet, and best baits are grass shrimp.

SIERRA LAKES/RIVERS

BOCA LAKE-The lake is at 72-percent capacity and scheduled for a DFG trout plant. The fishing improved last week with the DFG plant and will get better with this next one. The west side of the lake is good in the early morning. Throw dark colored spinners or gold spoons before first light. Trollers are doing well out from the inlet on Needlefish, flasher/worm combos and Rapalas worked for 25 to 40 feet deep for rainbows and browns to 18 inches. Bait fishermen are relying on Power Bait.

CAPLES LAKE-The lake has thawed, so the boat launch and boat rentals are open at Caples Lake Resort. The new boat ramp is NOT in operation yet, with an anticipated July 4th opener. Public launching will be available at Caples Lake Resort. Shore fishing off the dam and the spillway has been good for smaller rainbows and cutthroats with Power Bait and worms.

CARSON RIVER (East, West)-The East Fork is still running high, but is fishable. Anglers are catching the smaller DFG planters on worms and salmon eggs. The West Carson flows dropped a little with some cooler temps this past week and a 5 1/2 pounder was caught at Crystal Springs. The warmer weather will get the flows back up and the river will be blown out by later this week.

DAVIS LAKE-The lake is at 68-percent capacity and scheduled for a DFG trout plant. Trolling is the only way to go here. Trolling a Sockeye Slammer or a Dick Nite at the island at 8 to 12 feet is producing easy limits of 12- to 14-inch rainbows. There are more 14 inchers showing up now with an occasional fish up to 18 inches. Shore action has been very slow. The Rotary Club of Portola Fish Derby will be held on June 19 at the Honker Cove ramp starting at 5 a.m.

DONNER LAKE-The bite has been very slow. There are some Macks being caught but the bite is sporadic. The lake needs a DFG trout plant to get things going again. The kokanee bite has not developed.

FEATHER RIVER CANYON-Butt Valley Reservoir smallmouth action is good for fish to 4 pounds and when the powerhouse is running, the trout action is great. The Caribou Powerhouse on the North Fork is producing rainbows to 19 inches. Without plants, most of the river fishing is slow. The main Feather is running high with runoff anyway.

FRENCHMAN LAKE-The lake is at 53-percent capacity. Most anglers are catching limits of rainbows on worms. Big Cove and Crystal Point have been producing.

GOLD LAKES BASIN-Bassett’s Station is still reporting that only Sardine Lake and Packer Lake are open at this time.

ICE HOUSE RESERVOIR-The lake is at 88-percent capacity. A huge flight of winged ants has made fishing tough due to the amount of insects on the water that the trout are gorging on. This could last for another week and then it could be another week before the fish are ready to feed again. Dale Daneman caught 16 fish, 12 to 14 inches, in 8 hours of trolling with watermelon grubs from the top down to 25 feet.

INDIAN CREEK RESERVOIR-Winds were a big problem here this past week. One angler did make it out and caught a 4-pound rainbow and a 3-pound brown casting a silver Kastmaster from the shore.

JENKINSON LAKE (Sly Park)-The lake is scheduled for a DFG trout plant. Heavy winds this past week kept most anglers off the lake. One 3-pound smallmouth was checked in at Sly Park Resort by Jesse Gruber of Placerville. The smallie was caught in the Narrows.

LAKE TAHOE-Strong winds cancelled most trips this past week for guides. Sunday the wind died down and Mickey Daniels at Big Mack Charters landed 10 fish, 3 to 5 pounds, and lost 5 more fishing 150 to 350 deep with Sling Blade/Koke-a-nut combos and Sting Kings. Chuck’s Charter Fishing had limits of 1 to 3 pounders in the morning fishing 120 to 300 feet deep with wobblers, spoons and plugs. Mike Neilsen at Tahoe Top Liners caught only Macks on CD Rapalas from 35 to 350 feet deep. The shallow bite for rainbows and browns has been slow.

LOON LAKE-The lake has thawed, but the gate into the campgrounds and boat launch are still closed. It could open as soon as this coming weekend, but more likely in two weeks.

PROSSER LAKE-The lake is at 97-percent capacity. The fishing has slowed down due to the fish dispersing into an almost full lake. Trollers have been doing the best early in the morning before the sun hits the water in the Prosser Creek arm at Hobart Mills for rainbows running 14 to 16 inches on Needlefish in chartreuse or red or a spinner tipped with some nightcrawler.

PYRAMID LAKE-The winds kept boaters off this lake most of this past week. Joe Mendes at Eagle Eye Charters and George Molino at Cutthroat Charters did well on Sunday after the winds lay down. Mendes landed 48 fish, 16 to 23 inches, on pearl/red head FlatFish and frog Apex at 17 to 25 feet. Molino caught 16 fish, 17 to 22 inches, on red frog Apex and watermelon Apex from 30 to 50 feet deep. The season closes here on June 30th.

RED LAKE-It thawed early this past week and some small boaters have tried trolling with mixed success. One troller picked up some small rainbows and a nice cutthroat on a gold Phoebe. Shore anglers at the dam reported a lot of action on rainbows and brookies.

SILVER LAKE-The lake is ice free as of early this past week, but heavy winds made it too dangerous for boating. One boater tried to troll but was being blown across the lake too quickly when stopping to land fish. After the wind laid down, trollers using orange Rapalas were catching limits of browns to 2 pounds.

STAMPEDE RESERVOIR-The lake is at 61-percent capacity. The kokanee bite is still good, but the fish are dispersing and getting deeper. Rick Kennedy at Tight Lines Guide Service fished Sunday and caught most of his better fish at 38 feet on Sep’s Gold Starlite dodgers trailing Uncle Larry’s Pink Tiger spinners tipped with Pautzke’s Pink Fire Corn. The kokes all measured 14 to 16 inches and came from in front of Jay’s Cove.

TOPAZ LAKE-The lake has filled in just the past week-the highest the lake has been in 5 years. There’s a lot of muddy, debris-laden water running in at the inlet on the SE end of the lake. The best fishing has been stillfishing while anchored on the SW end of the lake away from the muddy water. One angler landed a limit up to 2 1/4 pounds on Power Bait in two hours. Shore angling is very difficult due to the shortage of access caused by the high water level.

TRUCKEE RIVER-The flows have slowed to a fishable level in Truckee. The water is a little warmer and the fish are becoming more active. Nymphing is the most productive method right now.

UNION VALLEY RESERVOIR-The lake is at 100-percent capacity. Kyle Neeser at Crystal Basin Tackle reported tough fishing here with only one rainbow, one Mack, and 3 lost kokanee for a morning’s fishing. The fish are spread out from 12 to 40 feet and were hitting dodgers with either a hoochie or a spinner. The kokes were small-9 to 10 inches. The rainbow measured 12 inches, and the Mack went 3 pounds. The lake was recently planted with fingerling kokanee by the DFG and Project Kokanee.

WEST WALKER RIVER-The flows are starting to drop but the river is just barely fishable. The color is still a little brown with the cold temps, so anglers need to bring their A-game for a chance at success. Fish the slower pockets and edges with worms or salmon eggs for planter rainbows. The DFG planting schedule will increase in frequency when the river flows get back to normal.

SACRAMENTO VALLEY

AMERICAN RIVER-Flows are up to 8,000 cfs, but fishing continued to be pretty good except for strong winds that made for difficult fishing conditions the last part of the week. Work the area from the mouth through Grist Mill . Fishing is easiest from a boat, but waders should be very careful in the high water, cinch your wader with a belt and wear an emergency flotation device just in case. They are catching shad as well by suspending the shad jig under a float. Some striped bass are now being caught on topwater lures, as well, but fishing will continue to improve as the water warms up.

FEATHER RIVER- Fishing for shad continued to be okay below Shanghai Rapids, but many of them scooted upriver and into the Yuba, and some striped bass to 15 pounds were being caught there as well, on topwater lures. Fly fishing for trout in the Low Flow Section continued to be good, but the water has warmed into the low 60’s and fish are no longer keying on dry flies. Most of the action has switched to caddis nymphs and imitations like Foxes Poopah and Lafontaine caddis are doing well.

FOLSOM LAKE-Trout and bass fishing were tough last week as warmer weather and strong winds made for difficult fishing conditions. A few trout and king salmon were caught, mostly up the South Fork and a few more on the main body, but overall fishing was slow. A few bass were being caught on flats at the edges of river channels on jigs and drop-shotting. Also, early in the morning there’s been a bit of a topwater bite in the backs of coves.

RANCHO SECO LAKE-Not many bass were being caught, but some nice ones weighing up to 10 pounds are being seen swimming around. Try topwater and swimbaits early and late. A surer bet has been to soak worms under bobbers for bluegills. Trout fishing has definitely died.

SACRAMENTO RIVER, Sacramento-Yee Vang of Broadway Bait Rod and Gun said that a few stripers were being caught soaking bait at Miller Park and the occasional striped bass-sometimes a very large one–was taking a whack at swimbaits being worked early in the morning at Discovery Park. Overall, fishing was slow in the area, though.

SACRAMENTO RIVER, Tisdale-Striped bass fishing was, in a word, GREAT! Last week with limits of mostly small bass the rule rather than the exception. Fishing was good from Tisdale to above Colusa for anglers soaking sardines and drifting minnows. Most fish were under 8 pounds, but a 24 pounder was caught at Ward’s Landing, according to Bob Bradbury of Johnson’s Bait and Tackle.

SACRAMENTO RIVER, Red Bluff-Shad fishing continued to be pretty good, except for days of high winds, and so did fishing for trout considering flows remained high. Dave Jacobs of Professional Guide Service continued catching both species on combo trips, fishing between Red Bluff and Hamilton City for a mix of nice shad to around 5 pounds and trout to 3 pounds.

YUBA RIVER-The shad that were in the Feather have largely moved into the Yuba all the way to Daguerre Dam.

NORTH COAST LAKES

CLEAR LAKE-Sight fishing is now the best way to go, try drop-shotting a plastic worm onto beds. Now is also the time when the topwater action will begin to take off as the bass are holding along the edges of the weed beds. Crappie action is still very slow. A few crappie are being caught by persistent anglers but it’s been hardly worth the effort.

LAKE BERRYESSA- Strong winds and 4- to 5-foot swells made fishing for anything hard this past week. This coming week try trolling the cliffs by Skiers Cove, the Big Island, the Narrows and the Ranch House for kokes. Limits were found a few anglers but they had to work for them.

UPPER BLUE LAKE-A flasher and a nightcrawler produced near limits in the east basin as last week’s planted trout had spread out. There were also reports of bedding bass but few takers.

NORTHEASTERN AREA

LAKE ALMANOR-The dam and Rocky Point produced several nice browns while the Rec. 1 to the tip of peninsula with Speedy Shiners and Red Magic Needlefish for a mix of mostly browns and a few rainbows to 4 pounds. Sunday was the first day the winds allowed anglers to anchor at the dam for salmon. There’s still a lot of runoff and cold water coming in, but the lake is almost full. Crankbaits, green pumpkin 4-inch Power worms and 5-nch Senkos caught bass by the dock ladders that are now in the water.

BATTLE CREEK RESERVOIR-Access to the lake is now possible to the campground and boat ramp but not to the dam area. Fish should frequent the shallows for a while so search out the cruising fish for some fast action along the shoreline. Worms and lures like Kastmasters and Z-Rays should work well. Fly fishing with crystal buggers, prince nymphs and hares ears should produce for the float tubers off the flats near the dam.

BAUM LAKE-This lake has easy access for shore fisherman and a shallow boat ramp for people with small boats or float tubes. Right now there are lots of fish being caught on Kastmasters or Panther Martins, mini-nightcrawlers and salmon eggs. Fly fishermen mainly used pheasant tails, callibaetis, PMDs and some small caddis.

BRITTON LAKE-Both the crappie and smallmouth bass are biting. Some good bets included crappie jigs, crappie nibbles, or crappie magnets. Color does not seem to be an issue at the present time.

BURNEY CREEK-Caddis and callibaetis were working above the falls, as well as salmon flies. Nymphs still seemed to be the ticket below the falls. Try a golden stone nymph or pheasant tail.

BUCKS LAKE-Open since late May, anglers are just starting to return as roads are open and the Mac bite has been very good, with fish weighing 16 to 22 pounds consistently. So good in fact, that no one will say where the bite is, except to say in deeper waters trolling J Plugs 75 feet down on a cotton candy pattern. Try Mill Creek for rainbow trout, browns and brookies on floating worms. Kokes are off the shoreline in front of the cabins at Bucks Lake Marina in 25 to 30 feet. Campgrounds are not open yet as it was a tough winter and there are still plenty of downed trees but the marina is open for day use. The lake is 10 feet from full pool.

CASSEL FOREBAY- The forebay this past weekend was crowded to say the least. Lots of 1-pound fish were caught on worms and lures. Most anglers said that the fishing was great. Although not many big brooders were taken, you could see them swimming near the edges so with the right presentation some lucky fishermen should head home with a real trophy. Fly fishing improved with the weather but matching the hatch was not been easy. Adams and callibaetis were taking some fish but when the fish switched to nymphs the perfect pattern has been tough to figure out. Cripple and emergers seemed to work the best.

EAGLE LAKE- This past week, trout fishing was excellent for both sizes and numbers caught per outing. A 2-inch grub trolled in 6 to 8 feet worked well for a 2-fish trout limit. As a result of warming waters, fish are starting to move into the shallower waters and staying there for longer periods of time. From 5:30-8:00 a.m. has been the best bite.

FALL RIVER- Wiggle-tail Zugs were a favorite for nymph fishermen and sunny skies should bring on more hatches. There should be good numbers of PMDs coming off, but callibaetis cripples are a good bet also.

UPPER HAT CREEK-The creek level has risen between 1 and 2 feet but water clarity is still good and the fishing was good. A lot of large fish came in this past week and should continue through the July 4 weekend. Panther Martins in gold and black were the top producers for brook trout in the 3-to 5-pound range. Limits of rainbows were also common. Fly fishing on the upper creek has improved slightly with a number of fish taken on buggers and bead headed nymphs.

HAT CREEK (wild)-Nymph fishermen still haunted the riffle just below the Power House. There were hatches of caddis and PMDs in the evenings, or try a callibaetis cripple.

IRON CANYON RESERVOIR- The lake is up and should be fishing well.

KESWICK RESERVOIR-Most anglers are avoiding the lake until the ramp re-opens sometime this month.

MANZANITA LAKE– The lake still hasn’t turned on but conditions are improving as should the fishing. Mayflies are starting to show, so match the hatch to catch more fish. Ants should show any time now, so be ready for some fast action and remember to heed the special restrictions on this lake.

MCCLOUD RIVER-The river is off-color and might be for awhile because we have yet to see any run off. If it does clear up, the fishing should be great nymphing and some dry fly fishing in the evenings with golden stones, PMDs, and caddis all potentially hatching. The Upper McCloud near Fowler’s Camp is high and fishing ok. The clarity is much better than the lower river, so fishing is possible just maybe a little difficult.

PIT RIVER- Fishing very well, depending on location, the best fishing has been in the Pit 3 and 4 sections, with some golden stones, some salmon flies, PMDs, and caddis, but consistent nymphing in the pocket waters throughout the day. Pit 5 was a little high last week, but should come into shape any day now. If you are struggling on the bigger nymphs, try downsizing to No. 16s or 18s. This will be really critical as the water warms up later this month. The flows are going to increase in early July, so get up soon. We may not have water this low in the future.

LAKE SHASTA-The Pitt Arm in particular where the plankton bloom is, the main part of the lake in front of the McCloud River arm, and east of the Pitt River Bridge was good for trout trollers dragging watermelon or silver/blue Apex lures from the surface down to 20 feet. If you want to mooch anchovy tails for salmon, try by the dam. Other hottest set-ups for salmon were wiggle hoochies and 8-inch Sling Blades with paddle-tails by the Centimudi boat launch. The bass are shallower now, try from the bank out to 10 feet using Senkos or topwater as that bite has improved.

NORTHERN FOOTHILLS

AMERICAN RIVER-Flows are heavy with the runoff and anglers need to use caution if venturing down to the river for rainbows and browns. Fish will be holding out of heavy current along the edges and in the pockets. It would be best to wait until the runoff subsides.

BULLARDS BAR-The lake is at 98-percent capacity. Bass action is still good for fish to 4 pounds. Some small kokanee are being caught by trollers from Dark Day to Garden Point.

CAMP FAR WEST-Bass and catfish action has been good. One shore angler came in with seven cats from 3 to 5 pounds that he caught on worms. The bass are in the brush near the bridge.

COLLINS LAKE-The lake is down 2 feet. The shore fishing is slowing down now that the water temps are rising. Trollers are now fishing 25 to 40 feet deep with Rapalas, flasher/worm combos, and spoons. Most anglers catch 2 or 3 fish per person running 1 1/2 to 3 pounds. The biggest trout of the week was a 5 1/4 pounder taken on Power Bait. Crappie and catfish are starting to show in greater numbers. Try for crappie along the east side and near the bridge in the brush. Catfish to 9 3/4 pounds are hitting nightcrawlers during the night at the dam.

ENGLEBRIGHT RESERVOIR-The lake is spilling over the dam. Trout action is fair for trollers and bait drifters from Long’s Cove to the inlet. Watch out for patches of debris while boating.

FRENCH MEADOWS RESERVOIR-The lake is at 79-percent capacity. The campgrounds are still not open, but the boat ramp can be reached on a rough road. Foresthill Ranger Station had little word on the fishing.

FULLER LAKE-The lake is FINALLY scheduled for its first DFG trout plant this week.

HELL HOLE RESERVOIR-The lake is at 92-percent capacity. All roads are open to the lake and all the campgrounds are now in operation. Trout, kokanee, and Macks are hitting for trollers. Rainbows are at the power house, the browns favor the inlet, and the kokes and Macks are at the dam.

LAKE OROVILLE-The lake is at 75-percent capacity. Coho bite is a bit tougher but trollers are still catching limits of silvers, 14 to 19 inches, on Sling Blade/nightcrawler or hoochie combos at 25 to 40 feet near the Bridge. Shore anglers can pick up the cohos using a minnow/bobber off the dam in 15 to 20 feet of water. Bass action is still good on the main points at 25 to 35 feet on Roboworms and jigs.

ROLLINS LAKE-The lake is full. Bass and trout action is good for shore anglers using worms on a small jig head or on a bobber. Trollers are doing fair at the dam for planter rainbows. The trout have been running 12 to 16 inches.

SCOTT’S FLAT LAKE-Still some nice browns to 20 inches coming from the inlet on worms and Power Bait. Trollers are picking up 12- to 16-inch rainbows working the Cascade Shores area with flasher/worm combos. Shore anglers have been picking up a few fish along the Campground 1 area on Power Bait. Bass are getting more active with warmer water, 63-degrees. Both largemouth and smallmouth bass should be up shallow near rocks and cover.

SUGAR PINE RESERVOIR-The lake is scheduled for a DFG trout plant this week. The campgrounds are in full operation, and with another plant the fishing should be even better for shore anglers and trollers.

STUMPY MEADOWS RESERVOIR-The lake is scheduled for a DFG trout plant this week. The campgrounds are in full operation. Shore anglers and trollers are doing well on planter rainbows.

THERMOLITO AFTERBAY-There is still good action on bass to 5 pounds on the tule banks for anglers throwing Roboworms and Senkos. The water level has been fluctuating, so if the water is out of the tules, move out to the rocks along the channels with a crankbait.
