Second on the agenda is that I'm sure, if you watch National News that you saw the problem they are having at the Oroville Dam. It was pretty shaky last night with the evacuation of the towns along the Feather River (below Oroville Dam) to the tune of 100's of thousands of people. BUT the dam held and the water level is dropping although most are still not allowed back home quite yet.
Third, since it rained most of last week and we are expecting five more days of rain, starting Thursday, I headed out to Lake Camanche this morning if for no other reason, to get some fresh air and sun. Want to know about the water level? It's full. You saw the pictures in the last post of the Mokelumne River running under the 49 bridge. That runs into Lake Pardee (which is full) and then into Lake Camanche and back out into the Mokelumne which has been flooding the valley down Wilton (Ca.) way.
So with two lines out, one with rainbow PB and the other with orange Power Eggs, I sat, chatted with Rubin and Dave (you know them from previous posts) and Yuki when he arrived. It's getting to be like a family out there. Rubin caught one on Chartreuse PB right when he got there, but the rest of the time was spent socializing. We were waiting for 11:00 which seems like the time the bite starts.
In the picture below, if you make it big and look right in the center, that little bush is the big bush on the island we used to fish off.

|That's Yuki down there.|
|How do you like the new boots?|
|And there it is.|
Next time out probably not until next week.
