Thanks, hard to believe, but we caught about 30 to 40 that day from 3 to 12 pounds, all on flyrods. Every cast was another pig. Birds were diving on baitballs. The arms were worked. The only thing that stopped us was darkness. Those things eat 3 to 4 pound fish!

They ARE fighters. I always hit whites first thing during stockton tourneys- usually good for a few nice fish,, unless the strippers are there- then its hold on to yur jig rod. then we would boogie outta there! Never have fished much just for the strippers. We have kept one or two for eating though. But the large mouth always had a "twang" to em from the delta.

The bass have made a huge comeback from the eighties size and populations. It was hard to fish back then. Or hard to FIND fish. The place is LOADED with structure and cover .. I can only guess as to how many have gotten totally LOST out in that mass o water ways...? The tiny hidden islands with the ancient cabins are cool- as is the ancient ship ruins scattered all over.


Those had to be hell on FLYRODS...!

This is what happens when you flush fish down the toilet. No but, seriously? This is news...Giant goldfish live everywhere. I've seen some pretty big goldfish in ponds and marshes. I've also seen huge turtles and other invasive species that are thriving. I used to raise big goldfish in aquaponic systems. They are great fish to use but not really as a food source. Talapia other fish are better but goldfish are really easy to take care of.

Maybe the sushi restaurants around the lake should start serving some of the more edible invasives.

Some of you don't seem to realize the importance of protecting Lake Tahoe... as the LARGEST and CLEANEST source of water for thousands of miles... the largest lake in the Sierra... and uphill of major cities and agricultural areas... like the Central Valley, you know, the area that supplies the country with the majority of fruits and vegetables. It ain't just a fishing spot... it is one of the most important natural resources in the west.

^^^^^ bullshit^^^^^

If you love it so much asshat then pack your sh#t and get your car and your trash and everything that goes with all you retards up there and get the hell out

It's the biggest lie ever and what Tahoe needs is less of you people and more bulldozers and restoration of your removed piles of house.

See Wes for those of that have lived in this area for generations the problem has always been people like you who's show up and never leave. You pretend to care so you can bilk some grant fora check or get a phd in some sort of bullshit associated with preserving the lake and in the end you get very little done other than some bullshit report on how all the cars and sand are polluting the lake.

No sh#t it took you a few hundred K of research to figure out the problem is you and your car and your wood burning stoves and your answer is to put in more infrastructure to catch the dirty runoff you create by just being there.

Save Tahoe by tearing down your houses and leaving.

Tahoe doesn't drain into the central valley last I checked. I should introduce you to a hydrologist friend of mine, he can explain how that sh#t works in layperson's terms!

And the Owens Valley doesn't drain into the LA basin. Nor does the Feather.

Tahoe drains to the north and east... does not supply water to valley agriculture. Echo lakes has water diverted to the west, that would naturally flow into Tahoe. So the cleanliness of Tahoe doesn't affect California agriculture. That said, keeping Tahoe clean should be a priority. The TRPA doesn't really care about the lake. It cares about itself and the fees it collects period. The head of the TRPA makes about 100,000 dollars a year... a big salary in this area. The officials of this organization are not elected officials, but reign like they;re royalty. Sure there are good members of that org but they're very few. Dan
