April Fools Day on the Forebay

I was foolish today, April 1 2022, to think I could repeat last weeks epic day. The day looked perfect and I tried visualize epic before the day started but the fish just didn’t cooperate today. It wasn’t for lack of finding them either. I made lots of fly changes today without any clear winners.…

Epic Day on the Forebay

Friday  March 25, 2022.- The forebay fished great today.The morning started out challenging. I fished the trench with a small brown and white clouser as I had last week and picked up fish in the trench fishing 15 feet of water.  The fish are starting to exhibit spawning behavior in the 62 degree water. The…

The Forebay is Starting to Pick Up

Friday March 18, 2022 -This years Striper fishing in the forebay has gotten off to a very soft start.  I haven’t been fishing it much because reports have been slow to fair and few attempts Ive made this year have been really tough.   It’s so different than last year.   But today I felt like the…

Henderson Springs Eternal 2022

  It is human nature always to find fresh cause for optimism. Henderson Springs came out of Covid in a big way.   The quality of fish that Mark Henderson has put in the 5 lakes that make up this amazing compound obviously gained weight over the last couple covid years as did I with nothing…

Synebeggo -Gina’s Maiden Voyage

It’s unfortunate that you have to book a beach side campsite at Half Moon Bay 6 months in advance.   But that is exactly what three other Revel owners did.   All parked with glorious views out the back of the Van.  I don’t think I’ve seen that many in one place since we drove it off…

Scouting the Forebay and Lake

Friday February 19 2022   Even though the best reports from  the lake and forebay these last few weeks have been fair to poor,  I had to go back and look for myself,  especially with February getting closer to the possible closure of the Lake.     Some people have been hinting that the lake would remain…

RV Camping In Palos Verdes

February 4-7 2022 –  Gina and I have never RV camped at a full hookup facility until we booked a couple night at Wine Country RV Resort.  I may have spoiled Gina from camping in any other way.   WIne Country RV resort is definitely the nicest most upscale and complete RV Resort we have ever…

Best Day of December

Saturday Dec 4,  2021 – I’m getting a feeling that nobody really knows what makes stripers in the Oneill Forebay eat.  This year has been a strange Striper year all around.    There are many who are saying that its one of the worst seasons on record.  Many of the San Luis regulars in November…

Fog, Birds and a “Double”

  November 4, 2021 – It was best not to expect too much today especially when I crested Pacheco Pass on a sunny morning only to find a thick fog bank hanging over the forebay all day.   The Wind Line is broken and has been registering Zero Miles and hour for the last weeks.   The…
