With the heavy weed cover a lot of fisherman will be flipping or punching some baits down through the weeds and into the holes in the mats with a variety of plastics and jigs.
It really is a fun time to fish, you can target fish with big and small baits, you can catch post and pre spawn fish, you can choose to fight through the vast areas of weeds on the West & North ends of the lake, or you can fish the deeper water and target structure and rock piles. A couple of key reminders, the lake is about three feet lower than normal, be very careful boating close to shore, there are rocks just under the surface that have not been exposed before, I have personally damaged my prop twice in the last months. Also the water temps are getting up into the high 70's during the hot days, the fish will not do well being carried around in the livewells. If your not in a tournament, catch, picture and release the fish as soon as possible. If your coming from out of the area or county, remember you must have your boat inspected before launching into the lake. Currently with our water level at 1.79 feet above our scale, most of the launch ramps are still usable. The Lucerne ramp is questionable and getting in and out of the State Park and the Konocti Casino area will require caution and a raised motor. Have fun, be careful, respect the other people fishing, ""Be Courteous"" God Bless, Bob
