Nice!


New ideas don't take hold because people become convinced of them, they take hold because the people believing the old stuff die.

Berryessa is basically at my door step but I hate the yuppie boat traffic it gets, I hear the crappie reports from the old ladies at berryessa sporting goods when I get my minnows but honestly I dont fish it. When I was younger i bobber fished minnows for lmb but that's about it, a couple Kokanee trips with a buddy... just too many people for me

last time to that lake was about 2000 -2001 . went down the road out of mc cloud , passed boat launch and drove around to the dam . it was around 9:30 am 

we fished with every trout lure and power bait in my tackle box all the way back to boat launch and not even a bite . 

went back to mc cloud got a burger then back to camp . 

next morn we fished trout creek secret spot and 45 minutes later were back in camp with 10 . full limit for 2 . 

my go to place up there is medicine lake but its almost never open when im camping in june

Should have fished the launch.

There's a little tournament called halbasch trout bash at mccloud in June usually the second Saturday. They have a dinner in mccloud at the hall and raffle.
If u troll flashers with worms and haven't gotten a bite for more than 5 min then your either dragging a fish or your worm is gone.
Power bail floating balls are best from shore.
They get their plant the week of the tournament usually.
