Sunshine + Rain = Great Fishing!

The mixture of rain and sunshine have the fish jumping! The rain brings lots of fresh feed into lake so look for the runoff areas because that’s where lots of fish will be hanging out. The break in the rain brings sunshine which seems to get the fish just as active and more aggressive on the bite.  This past week brought some great catches, some during sunny days and some during overcast or rainy days.

The Egan Family from Sacramento took home 4 nice Rainbows on their last fishing day of their campout. Mike Egan said to use Powerbait, either yellow or green. A little bird told me that he got Tracie Quinn of Yuba City & Raylene Dagit hooked on fishing at Collins Lake. The girls are starting to show up the guys!! They trolled Rapalas by the dam and used crawdads and each netted a nice Bow.

A handsome  “father & son team” showed up to fish and left with one of the biggest Trout caught this week, a 3 lb. Rainbow. Their trip was extra special because his son is leaving soon for the Navy so hats off to Ray Weddle from Lincoln & his dad John Weddle!!

Dan Davis of Gridley a & Bob J. of Oroville caught 4 Trout while floating rainbow colored Powerbait near the boat ramp.

Ed Varner of Rocklin actually brought his boss fishing with him (Bill Weems of Lincoln).  The way Ed tells it, Bill has been like a father to him and taught him everything he knows!! He listened real well because they each limited out on Trout throwing spinners from shore in the sand beach.

Gabe Miranda of Yuba City used red & orange Powerbait from the beach and reeled in a nice Rainbow, I guess it was worth skipping school for huh Gabe.  Three cute kids and 3 nice Trout was a great combo for Jory Adams and siblings Hayden & Corey Betteridge, all of whom caught a Rainbow Trout on powerbait by campsite 108.

Kristen Cook & David Clayton of Oroville only caught one each but they were big Trout. The biggest Raianbow weighed 3 lb. 8 oz. and the smallest one was a 2 lb. 12 oz. They trolled with gold Cripplures on a sunny Sunday afternoon!  Jim & Julie Castle showed off their fishing capabilities as always by trolling a worm and a flasher.  They fish all spring and always catch fish here, this time it was a 2 lb. 4 oz. Rainbow Trout and a 1 lb. 12 oz. Bass.

Justin Harrison & friend Michael Lawson caught a 2 lb. 8 oz. Trout and a 3 lb. Trout trolling 15′ down with silver Kastmasters.  Brandon Bermel caught a 1 lb. 8 oz. Trout trolling Kastmasters by the power lines on Sunday and a 3 lb. 2 oz. beauty on Monday.
