IVR Nov 27 I observed brightly shining stars

Arrived late. Beautiful day on the water. One 14" bow in the box. Others hooked but not landed. Toplining Needlefish.

Hey grizzley,
Which boat were you in? Doubleheader and I were out there at IVR on Sunday morning in his Archilles inflatable. (Did we happen to meet at the boat dock?)

It took us a while to locate the fish as we only had one fish a piece by noon on a beautiful, flat, calm day. Then Doubleheader's downrigger rod goes crazy as he limits out between 12pm and 1pm (apparently a late bite). He ended up with rainbow trout to 2.5, perhaps 3 lbs, and two really fat 14" kokes. I ended up with one 14" football koke. All fish were very particular as they hit only orange color lures.

Fish appeared scattered although we found some in 15' of water (40' depth) on the west side.

PS> I got hung up twice and for the first time lost a lure while trolling! There seems to be a number of tree stump/branch obstacles sticking up out of the lake on the west side.

Hey Fishsearch, Yes that was us, my grandson and I. Nice boat you guys have there!
You seemed to have been in the right spot alright.
Glad you guys did so well.
We didn't go to the area you indicated, only had the MinnKota.
Our trip was last minute, got there late and left before dark.
But what a beautiful day it was. Today, it's raining like crazy with a slight mix of snow at times.
See ya on the water. Dave

I was meaning to ask anyone who knows... On two of the trout we caught at IVR on Sunday, they had round holds that penetrated the skin. I did not see anything sticking out of or into the meat; just round holes a few millimeters in diamter. What made those? (Are the fish safe to eat? - I assume so.)

Thanks for the report guys. That is one of my favorite lakes. I was there last week myself ;).

Looks like IVR is back in the news again, maybe another banner season like last winter? ;)

Are these the sores you're talking about?

First year I have seen it in this lake. 3 of the fish I caught had 'em. It's common in Berryessa. It's some kind of parasite. Don't worry about eating them, just release them so I can catch 'em next time, that's what I do :P.....
Here's a fatty...

Hey Grizzly,

I think we met you on the launch ramp sunday morning. Dad and I were pulling my boat out the Alumaweld when I think you to were putting in. Great to hear you had some luck, speratically planned trips are always the best.

you are right, some of the best trips are not really planned but just happen.

Hi "beast",
The sores you outlined looked like the ones I saw on our fish from IVR. They appeared round like something latched on for a bite or drink. Oh well, I'll just cook everything well done... Nice trout you showed.

Those are anchor worm (Lernia sp.) scars. They form where the parasite (a copepod, not a true worm) has fallen off. There is often an associated bacterial infection at the site of the wound. Neither the parasite or the bacteria will hurt you if you eat the fish.
