NORTH COAST LAKES

CLEAR LAKE

LAKE BERRYESSA

• LAKE SONOMA - Topwater, crankbaits and Senkos caught most of the bass, although one nice 7.2-pound largemouth bass took a green pumpkin Senko and other fish were caught on a shad patterned LuckyCraft BDS3 fished on the edges of all the grasses in 5 to 10 feet of water. Landlocked steelhead are chasing shad all over the surface at first light, so topline minnow imitations 100 feet behind the boat from the dam up to the no ski buoys on the main body.

NORTHEASTERN AREA

LAKE ALMANOR

BAUM LAKE

EAGLE LAKE

FALL RIVER

UPPER HAT CREEK

McCLOUD RIVER

PIT RIVER

SHASTA LAKE

•  WHISKEYTOWN RESERVOIR - The lake and ramps are in great shape but the word is out and fishing pressure is increasing. Kokanee fishing has also been great with fish averaging 14 inches and still growing. Troll a pink Apex behind a Sling Blade in the channel at the bridge or the coldwater curtain. Or try an Uncle Larry’s spinner with pink and white beads tipped with Toupee corn. You have to keep the hooks tipped with corn.
