Water Temp: 53.1 to 55.9
Water Clarity: Clear (4-6 feet visibility)
Report: There is a solid bite on bass to 3 1/2 pounds areas to fish off the face of the dam in 35 to 50 feet of water. Also the east second and third ramps are holding bass on isloated rock piles in 20 to 40 feet. Swimming area rock eddy from 18 to 45 feet of water and in the 5mph area bass are holding in and around brush piles and isolated rocks and near dropoffs in 25 to 40 feet of water. Vertical jigging with a dead stick pause is working best. Johnny C's California Resevoir Lures jigs colors 925 and 1050 paired with yamamoto 5" twin tail grub trailers in colors 208 & 301 work well. Jigs in 1/4oz. & 3/8oz. Arkie head jigs & 3/8oz. & 1/2 oz. Football head jigs are working the best. Drop shot pro gold 6" red flake worms and baby brushogs also are working but the better fish are coming on jigs. Mid morning bite is good afternoon bite is better & traffic is light. Water is clear

Find good targets to hit & get on top of them and vertically jig the baits with a dead stick pause the bite will be solid when you pick the lure up
