Cedar Bark Beetle Larvae Part Deux

Just an update on the Cedar Bark Beetle Larvae. I spent another couple of hours busting rounds this morning and collected about 3 dozen. Apparently we have an infestation of some sort going on. I plan on hitting White Pines Lake on Tuesday and give them a try. There's a lot of gills and I want to see what happens with them.

My other option for a lake is Rancho Seco Lake but the Sacramento Valley is expecting temperatures near 100 for the next couple of days and White Pines Lake is at the Elevation of 3907 and the temperature will be around 78 degrees and much more comfortable.

I'll take my little Okuma, fly rod, and Tenkara rod. I think I can fit all three in the Float Tube Cumberland.

Stay tuned.



  1. keep the larva fresh and moving slow, dont be afraid to store them in the fridge

    1. With my wife, storing grubs or crawlers in the fridge, be afraid, very afraid.

  2. Can't give you any fishing advice on the Larva, but, I just picture Bluegill gobbling them up. Good luck!
