    You may want to edit your post to say chrome not silvers. Silvers rare on the feather and you're not allowed to keep them.

    Re: New to Yuba/Sutter

    Welcome to PL. I live in Plumas Lake and fish out of Star Bend boat launch. Went this morning and got three nice "Chromes", trolling silvertron spinners and blue fox spinners w spreader and 1oz weight.12lb, 18lb, 6lb. Lost a fourth fish at 1pm. I run an outboard w prop. and do fine on the feather. Most obsticles are visible with water surface changes. I typically troll from just above star bend down to the mouth of the bear river. good troll, few snags! Fish are here! right out your front door! Moved here 3 years ago, started salmon fishing. Loving life.

    There are few things better than learning new water in a fine machine in my opinion. Id take every chance I could to get out on the river with the goal of learning new water rather than simply catching lots of fish.

    The stretch of water from Gridley to Oroville is where I would start during Salmon season. Mostly gravel and cobble bottom and easier to read than lower below Marysville which tends to be wider with sand bars, which get dicey in lower flows. I find it much easier to read the river working my way upstream. Take it small stretches at a time.

    As for putting fish in the box back bouncing and boondoggling roe through holes and deeper runs will get fish. Jigging, kwikfish and spinners work well in the slower water.

    Lots of info on the area on YouTube too. Good luck. Had to get rid of my jet and I miss that stretch of water a lot. Let us know how it goes.

    Well after at least 12 trips this year it finally paid off. Boyd's pump and a lotta luck provided this #20 buck on a flatfish off the anchor tonight. Water is 70.6 degrees you know the few fish around are blowing thru. Hang in there its gotta get better

    My biggest worry is that when I'm dead and gone, my wife will sell my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it.

    consider going on the hitch hicker forum (I assume its still on this site) and maybe find one or two that have REAL experience in the area you want to fish and want to hop onto your boat. Just use common sense when making the arrangements

    Welcome to the board the Feather River can be tricky at times usually the fish are in the outlet hole but with Oroville shutting off the cold water release from the dam now and only releasing water out of the after bay over flow and water temps from the warm water being 74 degrees those fish wont hold up in the outlet they will just go straight up in the cold water hope this helps you out and FISH ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
