Lake Siskiyou, August 9th

Evening on Lake Siskiyou Craig & Jerri

We found ourselves with a beautiful summer evening free so headed to Lake Siskiyou with our float tubes.   The Lake has been fishing well for trout and smallmouth who willingly attack surface poppers.  A local friend and retired judge was hooked up and on his way home for dinner when we arrived.  He reported a couple dozen smallmouth over the two hours he spent on the lake with the 10 incher he was landing being the smallest.  It was a bit breezy and kicking hard into the waves didn’t suit our mood so we opted to fish a cove around the corner instead.  Jerri chose a sinking line and bugger while I stuck to Poppers.  I had no idea such small bass would try to eat it, one fish couldn’t have been much more than three inches!  I landed several though only three fish topped ten inches.  Jerri only had a couple but they were both larger.  A friend fishing out on the main body reported finding several trout including a handful of eighteen inchers.  Sunset dinner at The Goat rounded out a Shasta summer evening nicely.
