Slow. Check the Mac board for recent reports. The water is cold I would guess 39, I have not been on Donner in over a week. Pyramid sure has been fun.

we have been marking fish anywhere from 80-140 feet in the china cove area off of bouy. Done two trips spent first two hours first trip catching minnows. Was not fun but successful. Lost fish next to the boat. Went back for a second licking and ended up with one hit and donated a rod a reel thanks to the wind storm..Will be back next weekemd for more...got to get rid of the donner minnows :-[ :-[

Even tho no fish a very satisfying day. Had a great time on Sun with MacDaddy. Which just goes to show..... Theres more to fishing than catching.......to a point.
