Lake Oroville Fishing Report November 4th, 2015
55-65 degrees, blue skies, 5-10 mph wind until 10am. Water temp was 64-66 degrees.
I went to Lake Oroville to spend some time catching spotted bass. I hadn’t been to Oroville since January when I fished the California Tournament Trail event. I launched at the spillway launch ramp which was a gravel/dirt launch ramp. It says 4×4 required prior to entering the ramp.
We started fishing the main lake points around the launch. From 10-20 ft I found active feeding fish. So my partner fished a crank bait and I fished a Frenzy Baits 5 wire. I got two 15″ spots within 30 mins. My partner also caught a few fish as well. The fish that we in 15ft didn’t seem to be as active as the fish that were shallower.
Some of the points near the island in the middle also had a lot of fish on them. My partner caught a 3.5 pound spot on crank bait around the island. There were a lot of fish in the same depth range there as well. We pulled out the trusty drop shot and caught a few smaller fish and a few average size spots.
We travelled down the north fork in search of bigger boulders. The first boulders we saw we stopped and threw deep diving cranks around them. Both of us caught quite a few good spots bumping the boulders with our cranks.
Overall Lake Oroville fishing is very good right now. You will be able to catch a lot of fish if you are fishing in the right areas.
