Just wondering if anyone has been hitting the res lately. I haven't been out there for quite a while. Anything happening? Have the white bass grown up any?

I been out 6 times past 2 weeks. Fishing for perch. Caught one in those 6 days. Going over my "little black book" i had well over 300 in the freezer this time last year. Mostly caught between Aug 2nd- Aug 11th. Frustrating! Gonna keep at it.

Yes the white bass are biting but very small.

Caught a 11 incher on a rooster tail off the floating dock on #2 last week. A buddy was throwing a small tubejig and got a 10 incher. That was it. They are not around the normal places this year, I beleive the great catch last year and the fact the water temp is around 76 they have been hard to get going. The fall hopes to be better.

I've never fished reservoir 1. I always fish the north shore of 2. Been using Benny Roberts "Sure Shot" punch bait and some punch bait that I made. Ive had alot of success with both. You usually get pretty good numbers with dip bait out at the res but there rarely over 5lbs. There's a lot of cut shad in the "Sure Shot" so it tends to catch some bigger fish.
