I've only fished it once so far, and that was in April. I went south of the state park near the boat ramp and launched on the bank kinda near the dam. I kicked across the dam area (outside the buoys, and worked the shorelineson the south side until I got about even with the boat ramp, then kicked back. It was rainbows back then. I need to get back there; I had a lot of fun.
I would wait a few more weeks until after a real nice cold spell. The rainbows in there have to be close to 22-24 inches. The challenge to fishing Yuba is keeping the perch off your line. When the water temperature drops, the rainbows should move in close to the shore whereas the other fish will typically remain in deeper water.
