A buddy and I drove to Red Lake and arrived around 4:15 pm. The temperature was 37 degrees and it was hailing. Threw gold kastmasers, a red/gold bouyant, and wooley bugger behind a bubble and got nothing. My buddy got an 11'' brook on a rod he set up with green power bait.

Got in the truck and drove back to Caples. Walked down to the Woods Creek inlet. Got a couple of hits on the red/gold bouyant and finally got a taker, 12'' rainbow. The rain started coming down harder and we decided to call it a day.

From everything I have heard, these afternoon showers/thunderstorms have been happening daily from Plumas to Alpine county. I didn't take the boat for just that reason and was really glad to be fishing from shore while I was being hit with bb sized hail.

Nice report, I was wondering what the area was like while we are having these storms daily. Would be up there myself but entertaining guests for now.......Jetspray

Yes RH it was looking that way again today. I hiked down to the inlet today on my way home from our trip. The winds really picked up around noon, the water was very choppy and the clouds were getting thicker and darker. Those thunderstorms have been an almost daily occurence for several weeks now. They should go away soon....

I know. *I live in Cameron Park and have been watching the clouds pass by, darken, and accumulate over the mountains every day for the past week now. *I don't mind the cold but I can only take so much rain and hail.

On the hand, I'll take as much water as we can get.

This has definitely been the wettest June in a long time!http://www.pic4ever.com/images/kap.gif Helps keep the lake levels up with reduced evaporation.http://www.pic4ever.com/images/7AD_headspin.gif
Weather report shows a change in the pattern later this week.http://www.pic4ever.com/images/Just_Cuz_19.gif
