Yuba Lake Fishing (UGH!)

| No Comments
After our last trip ATV'ing on Monroe Mountain, my 11 year old and I stopped at Yuba Lake to determine if this was a decent location for fishing and swimming. At the time (June), the lake seemed pristine, clean and abundant with fish.

Yesterday (Tuesday), Mom and my two boys (Alex and Nick) left home at 7am to try out luck at Yuba. On the radio, it was advertised that Yuba was overloaded with Walleye and other predator fish and it was open season to catch as many as possible -- to save the Perch population.

Oddly, the State's proclamation indicated to keep any Perch caught.

So, we drive out and offroad around the entire lake looking for decent fishing and swimming locations. Instead, we found ourselves back in the State park at Painted Rock.

I drive my truck right to the edge of the little rock island and unload our gear. We commence fishing.

Bear in mind, I bought over $150 in gear to catch catfish, Walleye, bass and trout. Bait included worms, lures, jigs, catfish bait and stink bait.

After trying everything, it seemed to us that Yuba only contained Carp. Despite the bait and technique used, we ONLY caught Carp.

A few photos from our Tuesday.




What an algae covered cess-pool. I don't think we'll be going back there anytime soon. Even our bathing suits (yes, we tried to swim in it) are now stained an ugly green.

Mom's visit in May 2008

Mom came to visit us in May 2008. I decided to make it a visit of firsts while she was here. First time on an ATV, first time handling a loaded firearm and the first time to try and kill me on a 4wheeler (while on a cliff edge)!
