I'm not sure if I should post this here, or in the bass section.

Anyway, went trolling this morning and afternoon on Berryessa, with a depature out of Capell Cove. The wind picked up early on, producing some sizeable white caps on the main body. The result was that a number of boaters (including my wife and me) elected to stay close to home. We trolled for a few hours, catching just one bass. Yep, a bass! I'm not sure how much more of this I can endure :'(

I talked to a fellow in the parking lot who showed me his nice 16" trout. He caught them at 15 feet, with 100 feet of line behind the boat, using a cripplure.

Thanks for your report. I have been hearing of a few trout being caught top lining. Worms or Needlefish. Or in the gentlemens case that you talked to, Cripplures ;) If you like Kings check out the posts by Kokoloco and Ol Angi over on the Kokanee, Coho, King board. Sounds pretty fun and it is only going to get better!!! Sorry about the bass ;D Damn things... I hope we get some good rain this season. Steve.

DJG. What was weird the last time I went out was I was all the way up at the north end of the lake, and the water was like glass. When I started coming back in, as soon as I got around the big island, there was small whitcaps until I got back to the Steele Park area. I think I just got lucky with the wind direction that day.
