Monday morning early Ray picked me up at the front gate and then eased his way back down the hill. We made our way to the 118 and then the 405 to the 5. A quick stop at Micky D's for take away breakfast and we were on the road for the ride across the valley to Hwy 46 into Paso Robles. Stopped in town for some comestibles and headed out to Nacimiento resort campground. The lake water level was really low and the campgrounds were full so we Made camp on the shoreline close by the launch ramp. After some preliminary preparations we took Rays boat out for a look at the lake. A quick run to Dip and Snake Creek arms of the lake showed that all of my best fishing spots were well out of water. We ran back past the marina to the dam end of the lake and trolled the shoreline at the edge of deeper water. eventually we ran across a small boil and managed to pull a three medium white bass from the area. not far from that I caught a fair sized crappie. We also were catching under sized spotted bass every where. A quick run back to the camp for some food and then back to the same spot where we caught the whites earlier to try the shallow cove for cats. We fished into the night using mackerel, the only result for three hours was one small cat that was released as too small. back to camp for some snooze time. In the morning I cooked up some chorizo and egg burritos for breakfast and we hit the water for another attempt to find the whites and maybe a few crappie. We trolled around Dip snake and Las Tablas Creeks for a couple more whites and so many small Spots that I lost count. We couldn't find many actively feeding white bass schools though. We did the same in the afternoon with no change, no whites and lots of small spotted bass. We even caught a couple of keepers that were released. Next morning we went out for one more try and caught a couple just around the corner from our camp but still no great bite so we packed up camp and pulled the boat out for the trip over the hill to San Antonio Lake. When we pulled in at the gate we paid our day use fee and after a short argument with the girl at the gate got her to honor our launch permit from Nici. that was still valid for the day. We put the boat on the water at Harris Creek and made a circuit of the lake around by the dam and up to North Shore, and back toward the marina at Lynch. Just before we got to the marina Ray spotted a bunch of diving birds (Grebes ?) and pulled up on them. They were feeding on a school of shad and it looked like Fish were boiling among them. We set out our trolling rigs and slow trolled through the birds and hooked up right away. Nothing like double hookups in fresh water I boated a small striper about five lbs and Ray boated its twin. we followed the birds for a while with several more strikes and two more fish for a total of four stripers all about the same size and one lost lure. Three stripers for me and the lure was Rays, he was trolling with four lb test and got struck by what was most likely a larger fish that snapped him right off. I also hooked up what was a larger fish but he straightened the hook on the small plug I was using and got off, fun anyway. We tried along the same shore line a couple more passes but got no more fish. Back to Harris Creek launch ramp for something to eat and then back out on the water at dark to try for cats. After a couple hours with no hint of a bite we packed it in. I cleaned the fish while Ray got the boat road ready and we headed out. Got to the rest stop on 46 about midnight and decided to bed down. got Up in the morning Hit the road and twenty miles down the road Ray's boat trailer blew a brand new tire so we had the adventure of changing a tire at side of the highway. After that was done we got back on the road to lost hills for a stop for food and fuel. The rest of the trip was only a simple ride home. I have a couple of photos or the lake from up on the hill that I can not get to resize to post and Ray has the pics of the fish and more lake photos I'm sure he will post soon.
