Bless our great nation,  for Independence Day brings great JOY!  It also reminds us of how appreciative we are for our freedom to celebrate, to congregate, and of course to FISH!!  Collins Lake is full of fish, families, and friends right now, who are ready to create new memories!

Pete Henderson and Bob, Josh & Mikey did just that, created a memory which included a limit of trout they caught while trolling with flashers and worms around 60′ down.

Jimmy Dixon brought in a limit of trout but didn’t mention how he caught them, nice picture though!  William & Luise Garcia from Yuba City fished by the dam using worms and hooked a 2 lb. 8 oz. Bass and a Redear.

Mae Travis from Sacramento started her day out catching 2 trout and ended her day with a Crappie, all were caught on worms off the dock.  Zachary & Billy fished from the Open Area with PowerBait and each caught a nice Rainbow Trout.

Johnny Kimble & his two little sidekicks from Daly City caught a 3 lb. 4 oz. Rainbow on orange PowerBait by the rental boat dock.  Rick Perry from Live Oak caught three hefty looking trout from the shoreline by the dam using green PowerBait.

It was a VERY HOT week and tough on the fishing!  The fish didn’t go anywhere they were swimming around in the cool water down deep, the fishermen on the other hand had it pretty tough finding shade, making shade, or staying out of the heat.  Fishing in the wee hours of the morning, or after dinner as it cools down will be your best bet.

Brian Maison & family (pictured above) are holding the fish board with their transparent and oh so imaginative limit of fish……… their point is, even though they didn’t catch any fish, it didn’t make a difference to them because they had a great time anyway!
