DAVIS / FRENCHMAN LAKES
CDFW Plants 2,000 Lbs Of Rainbows
PORTOLA – Trout fishing is still tough at Davis Lake , but expect the fishing to pick up with the arrival of two plants of catchable rainbows from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife .
“ The Department planted 2,000 pounds of rainbows last week and plans to make another plant this coming week ,” said Jeanne Graham of J & J Grizzly Store and Camping
Resort .
Fly fishing remains the top technique for getting trout . “ Anglers have been catching and releasing rainbows while fishing the damsel fly hatches at Cow Creek ,” said Graham . “ There was also a good hex fly hatch , but the trout were not biting .”
Boaters are trolling red dot frog Needlefish and Dick Nite copper red head lures at 20 feet or deeper . The best area is from the Lighting Tree to Big Island and back .
Bank fishermen are tossing out Power Bait for the trout at Grasshopper Point . “ A couple of guys will go out and maybe catch two to three trout ,” she noted .
Brown bullhead catfish action is good in the Catfish Cove and off Eagle Point . “ The fish range from 1 to 2 pounds and are hitting nightcrawlers and catfish PowerBait ,” he advised .
Increasing numbers of largemouth bass are showing . “ A couple of guys in a boat reported catching and releasing 13 bass , topped by a 4 lb . largemouth , while casting Rapalas in the Jenkins Hill and Lightning Tree areas ,” she said . “ Bass averaging 1-1 / 2 to 2 pounds are also hitting plastic worms .”
If you want to catch rainbows at Frenchman Lake , your top prospect is to troll Red Frog Needlefish and other lures on the lake ’ s north

end off Turkey Point . Anglers are hooking 14 to 18 inch range in shallow water close to shore , advised Mark Tieslau at Mountain Hardware in Blairsden .
“ Bank fishing is OK at Turkey Point , but you need to cast a long ways out to get your PowerBait or nightcrawler in deep water ,” he advised . “ You want to float the bait 3 feet off the bottom . Anglers who do this are catching a couple of fish each .”

DON PEDRO LAKE
Trollers Battle Holdover Rainbows To 4 Pounds
LA GRANGE – Rainbow trout are still a solid possibility at Don Pedro , and experienced anglers are picking up bright , fresh rainbows to 4 pounds in the main lake .
Patience and persistence are necessary to put together a limit as the bite changes from day to day . Heavy recreational boating has arrived at the lake on the weekends , and now also during the weekdays . The opening of Bonds Flat Road has improved access to the popular Flemings Meadow launch ramp .
Monte Smith of Gold Country Sport Fishing said , “ On our trip this week , we had to work for two limits of rainbows to 4 pounds , finishing by 1:30 p . m . Every day can ’ t be great , and it was a different bite that took some looking around and picking away at the fish before we finished up .”
“ We hooked a fish immediately , but after losing it , I saw a fish at 60 feet so we dropped the downrigger down to 55 feet , and the trout hit right away ,” he explained . “ After catching this fish , the bite died , and we moved a few miles over to Middle Bay for slow action before returning to our previous spot . We picked away at them for the next few hours for limits to 4 pounds using my custom spoons , and the best depth was 26 feet .”
“ After catching several fish at this depth , I changed the lure to see if it was the lure or the depth , and the new lure was also catching fish . So despite the 80 degree surface temperature , there is a band of cold water just below the surface ,” Smith concluded
King salmon and kokanee remain scarce .

CAL KELLOGG ’ S SUMMER SPECIAL !

Hello Fish Sniffers , Cal

Kellogg here . Several years ago , I wrote a comprehensive
guide to fishing for stripers and sturgeon in the California Delta in cooperation with some of the biggest names in Delta fishing . The book was titled , “ The Delta Fishing Handbook ”.
The book was very popular , but it ’ s been out of print for a long time . Just the other day I was sorting through the back room at Fish Sniffer HQ and I came across 10 copies of the book that I didn ’ t know existed in a box with some other stuff .
I still get requests for the book these days , so I ’ ve decided to use the 10 “ Delta Fishing Handbooks ” I found as part of a very special offer .
