    Went out on Oroville yesterday after work, water was pretty clear, although there was a lot of debris floating on/near the surface. Surface temp was in the upper 50's and found a couple pockets that were 60. Fished for a few hours and caught a lot of fish mostly slot size, a couple over. Log booms seemed to be the most productive spots.

    Lake level is still coming up, about a .21 mile hike to my truck from the dock. Rains should shorten the walk. Good luck.

    I can't help you much, but I would imagine that CFW would be very muddy after the last week of rain. Oroville might be a little more clear. Good luck!
