      Hi Rick. Thanks for the info. I heard the most consistent bites are between Bidwell Point and the dam at 30-40 feet with wiggle hoochies behind a small sling blade ...more or dodger. Early mornings before the sun fully hits the water. Might see ya on the water someday. Good luck!

  7. To all those near or around Oroville, be safe and our thoughts are with you and the lake. Let's hope those spillways stay strong!

      real slow bite, a lot of water still coming in but I could tell that it was decreasing between pre-fish on Friday and the tourney on Saturday. Water was complete ...more mud in the south but north was clearer.
    2. Brian Jensen 0
      How was the fishing with that high of water and flow?
    3. Pete Gonzales 0
      Fished there on Saturday at a club tourney. Couldn't get near the dam but from a distance the emergency spillway looked like an infinity pool edge. I guess now ...more I can say I was on Lake Oroville when it was the highest it will ever be.
