There's a new kid in town. JB Fishing has just retired, left Pacifica and bought a home in the Carson Valley. He asked Jetspray and I if we might show him a few sport. Jeff had never fished Topaz Lake and we thought it would be a good place to start. Jeff met with me at the North Minden staging area and we went to Dave's place in the Ranchos. We arrived on the South Shore of the lake at 0645. We fished until noon and managed 9 fish to the shore. The fishing was good until around 1030 when an algae bloom pretty much shut the fishing down. We left the south and gave Jeff a short tour of the North Shore, ramp and County Park. Thanks for taking us Dave. It was nice making your acquaintance Jeff. I suspect we have some more places for you to try. Welcome to the hood.

I have never seen this at Topaz before. When we started fishing the water was very clear. I suspect that the bloom came from the extreme south where there are many of acres of flooded pasture most of it less than a couple of feet deep.

It was very thin, there is not as much junk in the waters close to shore as compared to last year. The lake has been mostly full since the opener. The fish are getting healthier day by day. All of them had great color and full fins, I'm just sayin'.........Jetspray

CCYep slight winds kept it afloat as it arrived too......Jetspray
