    Tell me about it Mutt the San Jauquin river is at least 20-30 feet higher then it was this time last week.

    THe Medota sleugh should be fine they can control that are that the gathering will be at and there should be ALOT of fish out there i'm betting maybe some record fish this year too

    Don't know about going all the way down to Mendota, but if there were a gathering closer to home, up around here in N. Cali I'd be real interested in going. There are some real monsters around the dam in Lake Shasta from what I've been told.

    It's all about timing for me, with this job of minds - I was lucky enough to have the time to make the "Colorado River Gathering" this year & the "Mendota Gathering" the year before that, and at both of them - I had the time of my life. :big_smile:

    With a Nor. Cal. Gathering, I will be able to make that time. So I would love to have a Gathering in my own back yard (Ca. Delta).

    id like to hook up with Phil and Bert and find some good areas to fish. So tired of the lousy places that I know of for cats. I also wish I had a bit more free time now too lol.

    I am from redding myself. Jones valley is another good spot for cats, But shasta lake is so big unless you are with someone who is already keyed in on the cat spots it can be a little difficult, but you can pull out some nice channels and some sturgeon, the bass bite has been hot and there is also a good trout pop if you can get on them this time of year.

    i have heard that clear lake has a good cat bite and some biguns too. I heard you dont really want to eat those cats though. My old man told me that on more than one occasion while fishing for bass with nightcrawlers carolina rigged he has caught quite a few 10 plus punders right off the bank.

    There was also talk last year at the mendota gathering on Amador, New Malones, and clear lake. SL Res is another option. There is plenty of room at the rivers too:big_smile:

    Yup. I live in Orland, right off the I-5 where it crosses HWY-32, about an hour south of Redding. I was born in Redding as a matter of fact. Moved to central Cali when I was 12, and just moved back to this neck of the woods about a year ago and couldn't be happier to be back! :big_smile:

    Went out last night with my new girlfriend and her son, her boy caught a 15" stiper within minutes, couple hours later my girl caught about a 6 pound channel cat that was great. OH the fish had 2 other hooks in its mouth that had broken off from other fishermen:big_smile: but she got him.

    Met Loyd out there What a great guy it was a pleaaure to meet you Sir.

    There still out there if anyones going out I'm going to try to track them this evening again when I get donw with work.

    Robb made some of his great carna asada's Mmmmmmmmm Mmmmmmmmm:tounge_out:they had a few nice cats and were catching some bluegill nice pan sizers.
