What a year it has been so far, Covid outbreak, Black Lives matter protests, political upheaval, and un precedented fires throughout the Northwest and we are still in the middle of it all. Currently and for most of September the bite, fishing, catching, at least for me has been pretty tough and very slow. As a result I have allowed my customers to change their date or cancel their trips over these past few weeks and the up coming week. The smoke from all the fires was also a factor but now is clearing up even though we just had another major fire erupt in Napa and Sonoma counties with many homes & wineries being lost and not under control as of this post. The lake is now at its lowest point of the year, so be cautious when boating close to the shore as many areas now can be a hazard that normally have more water on them. October is always a busy month for the tournament organizations and it will be again this year. Every weekend will have some type of tournament going on so try to fish during the week if you can to avoid the extra boat traffic. We are currently in a heat wave which has set records in many areas and is unusual for this time of the year. We need a cool down period to get the water temperature to drop and to put the fish in their fall feeding mode to get the current bite to improve. Stay safe, stay calm, wear your mask, follow the rules, lean on God, God Bless, Bob & Tary
