A couple of us fished DC again today from our tubes using the usual fly gear.
We arrived about 9:30 and 19 degrees, most of the lake was covered with ice. There was still a lot of open water near the main boat ramp and Wallsburg Bay so there was no problem launching. We need a little wind to break things up again or else were going to look pretty stupid sitting in our tubes on the ice. :LOL:

We used #2 and #3 sinking lines so most of the fish we hooked were in the top 15' of the water column. We picked up all rainbows from 10" to 19" long. All of the fish we caught were in great shape and frisky. We used size 8 bead head crystal buggers and leeches with no real hot color or pattern.

The water temperature was 37 degrees and the visibility in the water of about 8' - 9'. The reservoir level is almost 74% full and coming up.

There were a few bank fishermen and a couple of boats while we were there. The day was calm with the temperature getting up to 36 by the time we left at 2:30. It wasn't fast fishing but it was steady enough to keep us from nodding off.

Driving past there today, it looks like you may not be able to fish DC in the near future, although it is a long ways from safe ice.

When I was a kid (early 70's) I loved fishing DC. Seemed it would always ice up and the perch fishing was off the charts. Same goes for Yuba.
