James, there are very few trout in Oroville due to a persistant virus in the watershed. They used to plant Coho in the lake instead of trout and it was a great fishery until problems devloped with the Coho they were planting a few years ago. They have now started planting Coho again but it will be another year or two before you see the results of that. In the meantime, fish for the spots in that lake, it is awsome.

If its planters you seek, try the Thermolito forebay and afterbay. Good Luck!

Or you could try Bullards Bar, Collins or Englebright, I've only fished for Kokanee at Bullards it's great as soon as it gets stable and warmer and nailed the trout at Collins under the Power lines, not fished at englebright yet, but some here have try a search under the "trout board"

Bullards Bar, Englebright and Collins Lake are in the vicinity and better trout bets. Are you banking or boating?

I haven't been up to Oroville in a while. Didn't there used to be some Stripers in the Forebay?

i do have a boat but its a a bass boat kinda hard to anchor. how abought the feather river before the outlet? some of my buddys said that is my best bet right now in this area.
