Headed down to Siskiyou ramp to see if I can launch. The lake is very low and I am going to bring a 4 foot stinger and give it a try next week.

Took a friend with me and set him up with a pole rigged with clear casting bobber, hook which I tied and wormed up for him. He cast it 5 feet from my bait then he got a bite, then started reeling in and behind the worm could see the fish. He paused and then the fish slammed the worm. Nice Fish. 20 1/2 lenght 12 3/4 girth (3 3/4 lb)

I went up to Siskiyou about 2 months ago. I'd never fished it before, but heard good things. Launched my boat, and proceeded to run the down riggers as well as top lining. I threw EVERYTHING at them, but never got a bite. The crazy thing is, I only marked two fish on the fish finder. I like to think that I covered the lake about as well as I could. My dad and I were thoroughly discouraged, packed up, and went to McCloud Reservoir, where we utterly destroyed the fish. When I tell folks about my Siskiyou Lake experience, they shake their head in disbelief, and tell me how good the fishing is! I'm not sure what to think...

Some days I wonder why I'm even there. Can't buy a bite. Other days I think it's one of the best lakes going. There are some very large fish to be caught in Siskiyou but I think they are very picky. There is more food and less visibility in Siskiyou than McCloud and I think a less fed fish will chase after a lure a farther distance in 20 ft visibility than a well fed fish in 8 foot visibility. In Siskiyou you almost have to put the bait right in their lazy face.

I wasn't there to see the conditions and haven't fished the lake in a while so this is just off the cuff thinking. Usually when I know there are fish in the lake and I can't see them on the scope I stay off the down riggers and work the upper 25' and often just the top ten feet. It sometimes turns out to be the answer.
