Turhan and I hit up Melones again. We flat out killed. First cast in Carson creek was a double. 3 inch white Zoom flukes were money. I was running 4 lb test on an ultralight rig and alternating with a bobber and jig. Easy 100 fish to the boat. Spots, largemouth, crappie, bluegill, sunfish. We were hoping for trout to round it out so we ran all the way upriver to the logjam. But best fishing was near Parrots Ferry bridge. Found active baitballs at dusk so was a 12 hr day. Fish Fry for the Warriors game tomorrow night!
There are few lakes as prolific this time of year than Berryessa. Turhan and I did a half day trip and caught 30 crappie, 25 bass comprised of spots, largemouth and smallies, and a bluegill. We were blessed with a Berry Baitball at dusk where they went apeshit on poppers. Truly special day. Thanks T. Off to Oroville for 3 days next week!
Debra and I left home U-haul in tow for the Great North Woods. 5 hrs of atmospheric river downpours later we met up with the recently Nomadic daughter. We spent some quality family time over the weekend humping boxes and furniture from temp location A to the middle of literally nowhere. Met some of the locals who seemed to treat Aubrey as an oddity to be protected LOL. It was sweet. Hit some of the local restaurants and did some 4-wheeling up the flanks of Mt Hough. We got to drive Aub crazy with arranging her furniture but pretty sure it has all been undone. Beautiful area of Norcal.
We got to sit in the Feather River Canyon for an hour surrounded by thousands of bees. The tow truck guys would not get out of their rigs.
