Well myself and Rob Farris made a short two day trip up to Baum lake outside of Burney Ca. I was able to coax Rob for an early start and we were on the water by 9:30 am on Thursday. The lake was quite and there was only a guide boat launching, otherwise we had the lake to ourselves. Temps were mild and there was some cloud cover, not much wind until the afternoon. Although the fish were not rising, there was a good bite. The guide was nymphing with indo's while Rob and I were stripping. I am happy to say the fish were receptive to the presentation, on my third cast I hooked a beauty, right out off to the east of the launch ramp. The takes were subtle but the fights were epic.
Between the two of us we landed over 90 fish in the two days, nothing under 14" as most were 18 - 20" range. What a couple of days of rod bending. In fact both Rob and I caught our personal lake best fish at over 24". Although it's a long drive, the action sure made worth it.
