Pretty much. They stocked the lake earlier this week. Spent 4 hours on the boat, caught 8. They're hatchery trout, but good eating.

The stringer weighed 3.5 lbs.

8 pound largemouth bass


6.5 pound peacockbass

There are a lot of big bass in the lake behind my house.
I used to fish pretty much every morning and every evening and all weekend.

About 2000 before I moved back to PHX from Sonoma County. During the 5-6 years I lived there I spent a lot of time fishing San Pablo and S.F. bays for Sturgeon, Stripers, Salmon, Halibut, and Leopard Sharks.

A lot of time spent on Tomales Bay fishing for Halibut, Leopard Sharks, and just because they are a great fight, Bat Rays.

All along the coast for Rockfish.

Not to mention all of the other fishing I did in all the lakes and rivers.

CA may suck, but Nor Cal is the best place in the world to live if you like fishing.

Oregon is a close second but a bit too far north. Norcal is in the perfect place for great weather and a perfect mix of both winter and summer fishing. There is something biting all year long.

How is the Bass and Catfish fishing up there?

I would drive straight from work to Lake Sanoma for some float tube Bass and Crappie, followed by Catfishing till midnight. Weekends we slept on one of our boats fishing for 20 pound channels.


Lot of good fishing in Oregon, just not as diverse.

Bass and Catfish fishing are outstanding on the snake river, and prineville reservoir. Bass fishing is downright awesome at Crane Prarie Reservoir. Lots of crappie around just about everywhere too.

This year has been a record year for Steelhead and Salmon on the Imnaha and Wallowa rivers. I have a full chest freezer full of steelhead from this year, and half of another one filled as well.

Trout is good just about anywhere. Sturgeon is also good I hear on the Columbia and Snake rivers.

My favorite fishing is for large 20+ pound German Brown Trout in either Paulina Lake or Wikiup Reservoir. Koakanee is also fun to fish for.

UUUGGG, Now I'm missing good fishing. It hasn't been so good here in AZ lately and the variety is pitiful.

That reminds me, when I was a kid we fished in American Lake near Ft. Lewis. My grandpop and I were out in a little boat and we see these giant Chinook copters with large buckets dropping stuff into the water. We were wondering what the heck they were doing. We found out a couple of weeks later.

We caught unbelievable amounts of rainbow trout. We are talkin 18-20 inchers. Beautiful fish but weak as hell once out of the water. I have never seen fish almost die instantly the minute they left the water.

They usually stock a few browns every year. Brookie stockings will happen next month. No cutthroats.

There is a decent population of native brook trout just east of my location. Declining over the last few years though.
