View Full Version : Lake Oroville Browns?

I have been hearing a few reports of browns being caught out by the dam on Lake Oroville? Has anyone else heard this? I thought all the browns in Oroville died due to disease.

Haven't heard of any being caught in the main body lately, but there are Browns near the main inlets. A friend of mine caught a 5 lb Brown early last year near French Creek on the North Fork arm of the lake.

Thanks for the reply. It is good to know that there are still a few of them in the lake. What did he catch that fish on anyway?

There are still browns in Orville. Boated a 5 pounder last winter in middle fork. ;D for that matter there are also still browns in Folsom I boated a 19 incher 2 yrs ago in Granite Bay. I let both fish go in hopes that they will both reproduce so more of us can post brown reports in these lakes. All be it rare to find a brown in folsom. I have been fishing that lake for 25 yrs and this is my first brown taken on that lake. I hate to think how old I will be when I get my second. >:(
