5/24/14 Lake Oroville Fishing

Today, we are at Lake Oroville Fishing. We launched at 6:00 AM and started working the area around the dam and spillway. After about an hour with no action we headed up the North Fork arm. We dropped in and went for another hour before we got our first hit. We continued to work this area landing two Coho’s and two Kings. The largest fish was a 24” Coho. The bite was definitely different and slower than just a couple days ago. The water temp was up to 73 deg. And the lake level had dropped at least two feet. One thing that was different today than the last time we were on Oroville is the fish seemed to be right on the bottom in 40 to 60 feet of water as opposed to a few days ago we found them in deep water suspended 30 to 50 feet. We talked to four other fishing boats and the story was the same…. It’s slow today. Our fish were caught on a Pro Troll Flasher and a Berkley Gulp Minnow behind Shark Cannonballs. www.FishTightLines.com
