    Re: lockdown boat projects....

    Nice gate but unfortunately you've now shown all the Yahoos what your gate looks like so they know where to go. I'd suggest doing what I did which was to install a button that a sign says any visitor...
  2. Re: Need some suggestions for babless set up for landlocked steelhead

    I've used them mooching for salmon and have only caught one Dog Fish. I used hooks that were marginally legal because they were reversed. If you looked at them from the side the point is aimed at the...
  3. Re: Need some suggestions for babless set up for landlocked steelhead

    Talking about steelhead vs trout isn't the issue. The question is really, "How do I catch a trout on bait so I can release it unharmed?" In a stream the way they do it in Alaska and other places...

    Re: Illegal catch or fish suicide?

    I'd guess it doesn't apply to your daily bag limit as it doesn't meet the definition of take but would to your possession limit. You'll have to launch like a Venetian blind going up and down to reach...
  5. Re: Did Guides cause Sutter and Yuba counties to ban fishing?

    Good on you!
    It will become clearer quickly as far as how the pandemic is progressing here in California. Sad to say but for all new diseases of this sort where there are no immunities to it the...
  6. Re: Did Guides cause Sutter and Yuba counties to ban fishing?

    More info about Yuba/Sutter facilities. I checked with the Sutter County General Services Director who said:

    "Sutter County boat ramps remain open for fishing alone or with family members who...
  7. Re: Did Guides cause Sutter and Yuba counties to ban fishing?

    It doesn't sound like fishing is banned. If you fish alone in those counties she specifically says that's OK. What she doesn't say is what is happening with the launches. Are they closed now or is...

    Re: Colusa boat launches

    Bingo! Although the size of the pads seem odd when you compare the pickups in the photos to the pads, the marina's website explains it.

    "If this is your first visit, or the hundredth, you'll...

    They could also be concrete pads for self storage buildings and/or boat/RV storage. Generally, self storage units have common walls to maximize rentable storage space but I guess anything is possible.

    Re: Colusa boat launches

    I don't but if you look at Google Earth you can see the site preparation from an aerial in 2018. Trenching was done for electricity and water to be used by future construction. If you go to IMaps you...

    Re: Bucket List Fly Fishing Destinations

    There are bucket list destinations and bucket list fly fishing accomplishments which aren't the same. One fish I would have liked to catch consistently on a fly is carp. They are everywhere, they are...

    Re: Lure Speed - Trolling in Lakes

    Another old technique. The rule used to be, "Never have your lure straight behind the boat." Another reason it works is the boat shoves the fish out to the side if the water is shallow or the fish...

    Re: Lure Speed - Trolling in Lakes

    Erratic speed is a good fish attractor. Historically, in the British Isles people just used fly tackle so when people rowed across a lake or in a river they'd let line out with one or two flies or...
  16. Re: Where are the Crappie and Bluegill this early spring 2020 season?

    Find floating vegetation mats, docks or pilings. Always panfish around them in the Delta and large Black Bass to surprise you. Fish a bobber and a piece of worm to find them and then however you want...

    Re: Lure Speed - Trolling in Lakes

    I don't think I've ever trolled what would be considered "fast" for trout but I think I'm missing out. I recall watching a couple boats trolling at Hell Hole while I was there that seemed to be...

  19. Re: California Recreational Salmon Opener Delayed Through April

    Every fish not caught will be another chance to have an increase in the number spawning so poor returns should be made better by holding off. Whether there will be places for fish to spawn and stable...
