Lake Oroville, a young lake, has much to offer in the way of fishing and outdoor recreation. This impoundment is all about bass: smallmouth, largemouth, and spotted. Oroville is similar to Lake Shasta: big, with steep, rocky banks and points that taper down deep. The lake’s three long, narrow arms can provide plenty of structure and secluded waters to explore. When these shallow spawning areas aren’t left high and dry (due to fluctuations from dam releases), you can experience a fly fishing bonanza. Spotted bass in particular do well in this environment. Types of Fish: Largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass, rainbow trout, chinook salmon, crappie, and panfish. This fly-fishing chapter describes the "where, when, and how" for fishing in this area. It includes a full-page map and information on the known hatches, suggested equipment to use, the best flies to use, season, limits, nearby accommodations, and camping.
