4M Wednesday, July 11,2001 Bulletin, Progres~essive, .... ,..~' Fly-fishing: Rated fair to good. The damsel hatch is Lake Davis Summertime fishing condi- tions now exist at Lake Davis, so fishing has slowed down and is rated as fair. Ex- perienced fishermen are still catching fish, while those who are new to the lake are finding fishing to be slow. Water surface temperatures are getting to the high 60s, and low 70s by afternoon. The fish being caught are averag- ing from 10-20 inches. Shore: It continues to be slow. Fish early or late. Use PowerBait or night crawlers on a sliding sinker rig Boats: Rated as fair. Those who anchor and bait fish con- tinue to produce the best re- sults. Trolling is fair for those who are experienced. A fish finder is critical at this time of year, as it will tell you the depth the flsh are suspended at and the depth you should be fishing. Many lures and baits will work if presented at the correct depth. winding down; however, it is still occurring from about 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. An experienced local fisherman fished four days last week and averaged 15 fish per day, which he-re- leased. 30. Over 375 fish were caught or released. This Saturday, July 14, there will be a rLshing presen- tation in the amphitheater at the Maidu boat ramp begin- ning at 8 p.m. A demonstra- tion will be given on how to "x, catch "the big one "and there "will be a special children's Little Grass Valley question and answer period.

Spalding. Most fish were caught by top lining with a wide variety of lures being trolled with or without flashers or dodgers Overall, the greatest success was with the use of night crawlers. As warm as the weather and the water have been overall, trout are being caught at depths of less than 15 feet. There seems to be no consistently good locations, with fish being caught in many locations around the lake. Locations seem to vary day to day with Eagle Nest, Wildcat, Pelican Point and the area in front of Christie Campground being men- tioned most frequently. Sailing is becoming more popular at Eagle Lake, as the lake is large enough to be ide- al for the sport. Families spend time hiking and biking along the seven-mile-long bike path at the south shore. The trail runs from the re- cently renovated Gallatin Beach, past the marina and through Aspen Grove, Eagle and Merrill campgrounds, and ending at Christie Camp- ground, Swimming, water skiing and personal watercraft use is also popular. Lake water levels are holding well, as there are no outlets from Ea- gle Lake. All boat ramps have good, unrestricted access to the water. Campers can make reser- vations by calling, toll free: 1- 877-444-6777. Over 200 camp- sites are available on a first- come, first-served basis. For specific camping informa: tion, call 530-825-3212.
