Fall Lake Oroville Coho

Starting my first blog to keep track of my fishing adventures and reports.

Lake Oroville
The lake has been very low, however the fishing has been phenomenal right until now. At this point, water has just gotten too low (1,394, 893.8 AF) and there simply isn't any room where I was fishing to accommodate boats or other fishermen. Amanda and I have caught several Coho Salmon to harvest for the season and now I'm calling it until next year.
Nick's First Coho
Manda's First Coho 
North Fork Feather River
The NNFR flows are at 341 CFS. The water is cold but the trout are out there. There were hooked several fish that were at least 15-18'' but I couldn't land one. They fought hard and came straight at me rather than away. Yes I was noob and blame spin fishing for Coho for my rusty fly fishing skills. I was able to find a few takes on midges but most of the big ones were from PT nymphs.
I'm planning on trying to fish as much as I can before the winter weather starts to close in.

Winter is coming...
With Thanksgiving over, the weather is going to start getting cold and hopefully that will mean some rain and snow for the coming year. I lost a lot of nymphs on the NF so I'm going to tie some more before I go out tomorrow before school starts up.
