    Re: Tahoe Bass

    I hear you. Thank you for clarifying.

    I don't have any sort of jaundiced eye toward the people working on eradicating the bass....but I kind of do, on a gut level, toward the viability of the...

    That's why I asked. But you're right, driving to Tahoe City would have been more efficient than asking a simple question. I have other questions...just need to figure out where to drive to get...

    Re: Tahoe Bass

    Until this thread, I didn't even know there were bass in Tahoe.

    Are they smallmouth that spread from the Prosser Creek Reservoir/Truckee River population? I ask because....unless they are...

    Good to know...

    Wish I could say it changed my feelings about this state though. It doesn't.

    Re: Beardsley Lake or Donnell Lake

    There is a ladder on the dam, IIRC. You can also walk to the far side of the dam and access the water from the granite bank, but it is very, very steep. What makes Donnell challenging is that it is...

    Re: Beardsley Lake or Donnell Lake

    Donnell is so very tempting, but there are a lot of obstacles in your path.

    For one thing, last I heard the road in was indefinitely closed due to storm damage. Not sure if it ever reopened or...

    Re: Where to get Brook Trout right now?

    I'm confused. When you say "EB" do you mean brook trout? They are not native to California...my understanding is that they have been planted in large numbers because they breed well in lakes...

    Re: Smallmouth or Largemouth

    LOL...funny you mention this. I have never studied up on the particulars of identifying them, and the only way I can tell a largemouth and a spotted bass apart is by how they fight. The LMB is...

    Try eating a smallmouth from a fairly high altitude lake....I catch a lot of them in Union Valley for example. I cannot believe how good they are. Completely different than largemouth. Prosser...

    Re: Smallmouth or Largemouth

    Smallies are superior in every way except size. When I hook a largemouth, usually it feels as much like a clump of weeds as a fish. Smallmouth fight like a wild rainbow....better sometimes.

    What kills me is the notion that we are going to believe UV is the hot ticket because Cal Kellogg says so. LOL.

    Re: crawfish

    I can tell you that every large rainbow or brown (over 10#)I have caught have had crawdads in them.

    But I have never tried to use live craws or a simulation for trout. As I sit here writing...

    Meh, I have no idea what he is like, but I was poking fun a bit at where he works. Can't blame him for being a bit defensive. He's proud of his job.
