Fishing at Baum Lake was outstanding!!!!!!!
Got there Friday morning, about 6AM ( left Sac around 2:30AM ::)).....Nobody on the lake and fish jumping like crazy. Bite was on from 6 until 9-9:30, then it slowed down alot. In 3 hours I've caught a total of 42 fish, biggest being 5lb rainbow, kept 4 that day. Orange powerbait was the key to success. Fished today from 5:20AM until 9:45AM, very slow, total catch 13 fish, biggest being 16'', powerbait was working once again, ( for the 1st time in 10 years fishing there I couldnt catch a fish on a nightcrawler ). Flyfishermen didnt have much luck, dont know why, perhaps not matching a hatch? Weather was nice, kinda got hot Friday, bit cooler today. Not a bad fishing trip after all.
