This will be my 1st time to this lake, coming from Grass Valley. I have read the past reports, and have some ideas where to start. Any other help would be great. We will be launching out of the north shore. Should I head to the dam, hat island? Maby it dosn t matter. Cant find the orange grubs but I did find Green/yellow color, what size hooks are you useing with the grubs? Help help help.


Thanks

Ryan

Size #2 owner mosquito hooks are what I use....as far as the orange grubbs....go to Wal Mart look for white 3in grubbs made by apex ($1.29 for 20 pack) Then go to Fishermans warehouse and get some orange "Spike It" dye ($3.99) then dip those white grubbs in it and 20 sec later they are ready to troll.

Good Luck!

Firetiger (green yellow) will work but orange is the go to color for sure....Small rapalas are a must as well. Troll them 1.8-2.5 way back behind the boat...good Luck!! Also there is a small bait n tackle shop at the north shore ramp??

Just because i like to be different, I guess, I've been toplining Rapala J9's in silver and doing really well. 100' back at 1.5 to 2 mph. If you want to try something different then there you go.

They are trout! Try your favorite lure and believe. I've caught fish at Camanche on Apex's, Criplures, Wedding Rings, and dodgers with a worm. Orange seems to be the color but sometimes something different triggers some good things. Of course if I'm out there this weekend I'm dragging an orange grub!!

Freon gave me some when I was I was in need a couple weeks ago so I feel compelled to "pass it on" so if I happen to make it out there give me a shout on the radio and I'll give you some home dyed ones!!!! What day are you gonna go??

Dodger worm combo 1.5 to 1.8 on the gps , use a threader on the worm. Never lets me down..

Stop at Willfish on Hwy 49 in Auburn. They may have the 3'' Seps orange grubs there. The Chartruse 3'' grubs work also. Make sure and run a swivel chain about 5 ft up from you grub. If not you'll have a mess on your hands. Oh and 140 ft behind the boat.

Good Luck

We were there yesterday.
Started slow with one, then suddenly in about 15 minutes we hooked into 5 more.
We finished the day with 14 to the boat.
Released most of them and kept some bleeders.
Topping out at about 2 1/2 to 3 pounds.
Caught on:
Orange grub on top ( the usual setup)
Worm / UV chrome seps dodger spattered with orange.
Orange / gold F7 original Rapala
Silver / brown F7 Rapala
Oh and one on a firetiger colored Krocodile
Most fish caught towards I guess dam 5 and 6 then to Hat.
The points where the orange bouy lines are out of the water on shore and along the white bouy lines in the water.
Several fish caught along some of the underwater rises between there and the south shore ramp too.
All lines back a ways.
Rapalas also back ranging from 5' to 15' down on the riggers.
Speed 1.7 to 1.9
Oh if your using worm dodgers keep an eye out for short strikes nipping off the tails.

I wish I was back there now......

Yeah these Orange grubs are a hot commodity it seems. I just bought the only 5 packs of 3 inch Orange Seps that we had left at the store here on Monday.

I am with Gills. Fished the narrows last Sunday- caught one on an orange grub, and 7 on a Seps gold/silver dodger and a crawler trolled at 1.5 to 1.8 mph on GPS as well.
