California Bass Lake



Bass is one the the top sought-after fish to catch in the California sport of fishing. While golden trout dominate the Sierra Nevada back-country, bass can be found in numerous lakes and most reservoirs in the west. The Dept of Fish & Game stock or 'plant' California lakes with bass that are raised in fish hatcheries. Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass
and Spotted Bass. Below are just a few of the lakes that are regularly supplied with 'planted' bass:

These are the best waterways & lakes for bass fishing -

Lake in California


Camping Lake
Originally uploaded by danamight
Amazing weekends in the High Sierra. Crisp, clean air, incredible mountain scenery in the alpine country. July 4th was not-so-crowded at Highland Lakes. Although all 35 campsites were filled, the nights were silent & you could hear the frogs. Very few boats on the lakes overall. Plenty people fishing. Kayaks & canoes, a dream location. Wildflowers just starting in mid July. Snow melt was all around us at 9000' elevation. Deep in the Stanislaus National Forest, Hwy 4/ Ebbetts Pass.

Big Redwoods State Park


Many unique qualities attract us to the west coast. Terrain, great weather and the Pacific Ocean. For those born here in Cali they find solitude in every meadow, secluded streams and dirt back roads. For the newcomers, Cali is a new beginning and often city focused. Until decades later, when the college and careers wear off and you crave more nature. The extreme landscape, the diversity, the wilderness, the people, the plants. Sequoia trees of California. All parks, listed just for you.
