From what I've heard, the crappies are not hitting as good as they should, due to the storms we've been having. Wait a few more days for the water to clear up and the bite should be on again. You have to really try the bass fishing out there. The lake is ranked number 1 in the world according to the FLW magazine. Just a couple weeks ago, FLW had a tournament over there and it was broadcast on tv. There are big bass to be landed at the lake. This is for Clearlake. Sorry, I have no info for Oroville Lake.

Thanks for the advice - I took it and will wait until this coming wekend to head up there (work permitting). I actually saw bits-n-pieces of the FLW tourney on TV.....can't wait to hook into some of those bass if I can.

Thanks again,

God Bless,

Please post your results when you get back. I'm curious about the bite.
