Default Yuba 3/24/17

My dad, Brother, and Myself went to Yuba for our annual spring fishing trip (normally go out to the Green, but flows have been way up) to try our hand at fishing for Pike. As it turns out, we are not very good Pike fisherman. We fished until 6pm. We caught 2 Carp. We spent the day hitting all of the shallow coves throwing large spinner baits in all colors, perch pattern swim baits, spoons of assorted colors, etc. No bumps no bites. The water was well below the high watermark. I believe the gentleman we spoke to said they were only at 40% capacity. There were hundreds of Carp in the cove straight south of the Dam. Would be a good time to go bow fishing for the Carp down there if that is something you like to do, we may go try our hand at that soon. No pictures taken.

It wasn't your fault. Yuba has apparently gone into the tank. The DWR has plans to treat it and restock in the next couple of years.

This reminds me that I need to go catch a few carp somewhere to use for Catfish bait now that the water is warming up. Thanks for the report.

Hmmm, there were LOTS of Carp so it makes sense. They make it sound as though they will not be bringing Pike back. Will be interesting to see what they decide to do and how it works out in the end.

sterile pike and tiger musky.
sterile walleye.


That's the key with Yuba. This is also why they were collecting pike to move to Lee Kay hatchery -- need a brood stock for producing our own sterile pike stocking program.

Get it poisoned. Poison the river above too. come back with strong stocking of sterile pike and walleye -- get those populations established before the card and other rough fish establish. Then you'd get 10 - 12 (or more) years before the reset button needs to be pushed again.

I'd like to point out that while poisoning the reservoir is the most likely method to be used at this point, that decision has not been reached - yet. Other methods are being considered and explored at the present time. Just to be clear on the subject.

that's only because NEPA hasn't been completed, and thus funding sources are not yet secured.

The other option is to drain the lake. I don't think this is going to be the right year to choose that option.

What other legitimate options are there? We know that mechanical options (ie: netting) are not effective and are expensive. So maybe they'll go that route...

they would be crazy not to poison that lake.

Those seem to be well protected a little better than they used to be..

The slide show I gave a link to on BFT said the three methods being considered were mechanical removal, chemical removal, or drain it. The decision will be made in the next couple of months and will in all likelihood be chemical removal. Just trying to keep the folks informed with what the current status is to the best of my knowledge.

Well, the DWR doesn't always tend to do the logical thing. Are they planning to do any habitat improvement in this plan?
