A tough day on Lake Oroville Fishing today! We started in the North Fork and landed and released three bass. After another hour we finally landed a nice King Salmon in the same general area. We continued to work that stretch of the North Fork without another touch. We also fished Bidwell Point, the area around the Green Bridge and the North wall by the ramp. Finally, we hooked and landed a nice Coho that measured just over 23” just out from the Buoy line. The final count for the day was 3 Bass, 1 Coho and 1 King. Both Salmon were caught on a Pro Troll Flasher with a Berkley Gulp Minnow behind Shark Cannonballs. The Coho was caught at 45’ and the King at 35’. We also pulled spoons, Squid with strips of Anchovies without a touch. www.FishTightLines.com or Call (888) 975-0990
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

We did a scouting trip on Lake Oroville King Salmon with Paul and Cal from The Fish Sniffer. We caught King Salmon up to 20 inches. The Kings were all nice fish that fought hard. Watch for the full story in the next issue of The Fish Sniffer. www.FishTightLines.com
