Denis Peirce: Late fall fishing

We are only about three weeks from the shortest day of the year. A good thing about this season is that you do not have to be out on the water at the crack of dawn to find good fishing. You can keep “Bankers Hours” and still do well.

The large reservoirs in the north state are approaching their annual low points. Most years Oroville and Shasta are lowest at the first week of December as the winter storms commence and they begin to rise. The water temps in both of these reservoirs has finally dropped below the 60 degree mark and they are fishing well.
