If the weather holds as predicted there is a trip over the hill to Red & ICR in my future for tomorrow. Capt. hope to see you and maybe even Mrs. C over there.
I thought that the x2 (wife) & x3 (daughter) might come but instead my daughter had other plans for a friend visit and sleepover. So I will be solo.
Plan on Red from 7:30 to 9:30 or 10, then off to ICR till 2 or so then scoot back home for family time.
I will report upon my return with pics if I remeber to take them.

Great minds think alike. ;) I just loaded my truck for the exact same trip. Expected arrival at Red between 7:00 and 7:30. Mrs C won't be coming. She's getting ready for the trip down to LA.

Well mine wanted to come for the photo op but we can't leave the 12 year old at home and well she has the thick skull of a 12 year old.
I will see you up there.

Good luck guys. I had plans to fish my favorite, Spicer, on Saturday. But, my youngest, a high school freshman, has a preseason BB game. Maybe Sunday. According to the Moon chart here on the sniffer, Sunday- Monday should be the "best" days. We'll see, huh?

Good luck at spicer steve, that and slab creek are two of the long skinny lakes on my list. I haven't been there yet but at 2000 ft the opportunity to try it out over the next couple of months is good. I don't mind driving a couple of hours for a day on a nice lake.
I was really tempted to go up to Oroville to the afterbay too after Paradise's report. Maybe weekend after next I can go up that way and pull along my brother in law in YUba City for the trip.

I'll be at Red in the morning around 8:00-8:30. Look for the big blue pontoon!

OK - here is how it went. Pulled out of my driveway at 4:58 am. Pulled over at Caples for a quick pic.

Beautiful early morning glass almost made me stay there, but I had other plans.

Pulled up at 6:52 am (made good time). I even beat the sun to the lake, but not this guy.

That's the Capt. With a fish on. He had a brookie on when I showed up and then caught a beauty of a cutt. I will let him post the pic of that one since I took it with his camera.
He was trying to get an action shot of me too, but I got no action. *:'(
A couple of love taps but nothing to show for it. We packed it up and went to ICR about 9 or 9:30. I stayed at ICR with Capt. until about 11:45 and another skunk on me. It was very windy so again I decided to leave the pontoon strapped in the vehicle.
Thanks Capt. for showing me the hot spots even if it wasn't so hot for me today. I will make a return trip someday for one of those big bows.
I swung back in to Red on the way home. Walked the shore throwing a gold KM down the dam and back in about 20 minutes. Got the skunky smell off of me finally.
I caught three brooks, kept this one,

he hit the KM so hard it completely disappeared inside his mouth. Spent 5 of m 20 minutes trying to get my lure back from him.
Then I stopped at Caples walked out to the end of my rock spot and fished for about a half hour. C&R three of these little guys,

11", 12" & 13".
Back home at 3:30 pm after a very nice day up 88. May be the last till the Father's Day ice out so I had to make the best of it.

Great pics CG. Glad that you got rid of the skunk. FYI. Nothing happened at ICR after you left. :( Thanks for the net, the pics and the company.
