    Default Berryessa report

    Quick report - lots of fish caught - easily double digit.

    Patterns used were olive cone head leach and olive leech w lead wraps, and black balanced leech.

    Intermediate line and conehead olive leach produced the most.

    Then late morning it slowed down so just messing around I decided to throw on a Popcorn Beetle behind the conehead and it caught the largest fish of the day and they just hammered it hard!! Those fish jumped 3 feet out of the water and one took all the line out so I had to fight on the reel and it just kept the drag going as well. It made a jump and spit the fly.

    Last fish of the day was a really nice slab of a crappie, measured 16 and 1/4 inches.

    Fished from 7 to 1:30

    I gotta get up there. The bass should be ready to bite soon. I went there recently with a gear fishing buddy of mine and we trolled and caught zero. I guess we should have cast some flies. Thanks for reporting.
