Buddy called me yesterday and wanted to make run to Fairfield. He's been telling me it's fishing good and been seeing lots of post about good fish. We got to the lake about 10:45am. Despite being wet the weather wasn't too cold. We didn't get a bite for 2hrs. Only saw 2 other boats. We were almost ready to call it quits then we hit a stretch of bank and the fish woke up. In a 50yrd stretch we caught 7 solid fish. All on rattle traps. Nothing bigger than 4lbs, but they were hitting it good. Then about 30 minutes later we hit another stretch and caught 5 more fish. My buddy caught 3 on chatterbait. Fished another 45 minutes and decided to call it quits. Over all a good day on the water. These fish fought very hard unlike most winter time bass.

They are dismantling the plant. State park is approved for at least a few more years, but the plant is done. With the cost of wind and solar continuing to come down this will be the new norm.

Glad you caught fish. Sure the overcast skies helped the moving bait bite. My last trip 3 weeks ago was blue clear skis and only caught 1.

Monti and Fairfield will likely run stacks before Squaw reopens their ramp.
