View Full Version : Paradise Lake 4/29 report

04-30-2007, 10:20 PM
Sorry guys for the late report, but had errands and another fishing trip to go on today. *Anyway, took the family up to Paradise Lake (Magalia, CA) to fish and picnic for the day. *We started out using a dodger/grub setup on one rod and silver/black rapala w/scent on the other. *The grub had 2 good hits, but lost both fish. *After numerous short-strikes, we switched over to the fly-rods and sinking fly-lines. *Bam! (As Emeril would say) and we started getting hit every 10 minutes or so while slow trolling a beadheaded olive bugger. *Other colors were being successful as well, but nothing compared to the olive colored buggers. *All in all, we had about 35 hits ;D, boated 18 of them (releasing all), but mostly all dinky fish :'(. *Must get down deeper next time!

Here's some pics of the lake looking left to right...

Here's a small 'bow...

Got a good sunburn as well! 8-)

Tight lines!

PP! I saw you guys out in the Drift- I knew that was your boat! Sounds like you guys had a great time! Thanks for the pics.

Hopefully I'll have better luck next time! I could only see the fish ;D ;D

Nice day out there...try trolling deeper, we went the next day and hooked a few hogs at between 7' - 20' on the downriggers...saw Erreck out there, watched his wife land a real nice rainbow!
I need to get some stars on my boat (even though it doesn't get much use) but I saw someone rowing a drift boat out there, must've been you.
Next time I'll stop and say hello. I'm probably going to be out there this coming Sunday, PM me if you go out anytime...
