It’s finally here-Christmas!  It’s one of my favorite holidays for sure.  It seems like everyday someone brings in a delightful treat that you wouldn’t get  on any other holiday.  We have a couple of fishing & hunting stories to share with you.

Mark Contreras of  Wheatland caught & released a gorgeous 7 lb. 5 oz. Largemouth Bass.   He used a crankbait with a Shad pattern in about 25′ of water on the east side.

Alex Allard  promised he would catch a fish so I could get his picture and he kept that promise faithfully.   Alex was fishing from a boat near the dam with a live minnow and netted a 3 lb. Catfish.



On 12/ 19 Austin Carter of Oroville shot his 1st Buck ever in the Daugherty Hill Wildlife Area which is attached to Collins Lake below the dam.  Austin, along with two siblings got drawn for the special junior hunt this year but he is the only one of the three (so far) to fill their tag for 2009.

Later on the same day, Devin Dwinger of Marysville also shot his 1st Buck and it was a 3 X 3  which has 3 points on each side.  It was a little bigger than he thought and a couple of ridges over, so he called for reinforcements to get it out of there. He used his 270 Winchester and was also a part of the special draw for kids in the Daugherty Hill Wildlife Area.

A couple of days ago, Tyler Jagd (11 yrs. old) shot a Goose for Christmas dinner. Wow, pretty cool for a little guy!! Tyler is the son of Mike & Kelly Jagd that work here at the lake, I think he deserves an extra present for his contribution…
