View Full Version : Oroville Report

Launched at Lime Saddle with my dad. *Went there to avoid the wind. *Ended up with 4 in the box, 13 to 15 inches, with 4 or 5 SDR or LDR. *Tried lots of different depths, but best was between 45 and 55 with one coming at 65. *Fish caught from Hwy 70 bridge towards the point *after goat point (don't know the name).


Had the launch ramp to ourselves. *Only saw a few other boats on the water. *Wind made it tough to troll in a few places but way better than working.

Forgot to grab the 4th fish.

excuse my ignorance, but what does sdr end ldr stand for? Is that a type of lure? What colors do you think are best, I was considering goingdown there this week.

Nice report Gadgetman

SDR = Short Distance Release (meaning fish lost right at the boat)
LDR = Long Distance Release

sdr = "short distance release" = lost at boat
ldr = "long distance release" = never got close to the boat.
lesss painful to type than saying it got away.

Gadgetman, nice report and pics. Nice to have the lake all to yourself, it won't be long and the water lice will be all over the place. I want to get up ther soon.

It will probably be the only time in my life where I had a ramp at Oroville to myself when I put the boat in and out. Should have taken some pictures of the ramp.

The wind was very odd as it bounced off those canyon walls. One stretch the wind would blow one direction, move a couple hundred yards and it blew the other direction.

Last fall when I fished the Hwy 162 or dam area I marked lots of bait fish. Didn't see any up at Lime Saddle. Rarely marked more than one fish at a time also. Not that familiar with Coho habits so maybe they are more concentrated in the fall of the year.
