Scouting the Thermolito Afterbay

On Thursday afternoon we took a drive to a small lake called Rock Lake near Lake Almanor. We got a tip that there were nice bass in there and the topwater fishing was really good. After an hour and 45 minute drive we arrived to see a very sterile looking pond that was nearly devoid of fish. We hooked some small bass and saw two 12 inchers but that was about it. We stayed a couple hours then knew we were beating a dead horse so we headed for home.

We still had an itching for bass so we decided to fish the Afterbay Saturday and Sunday. It was crowded with water skiers and swimmers but the fish still cooperated. The boys fished jerkbaits most of the time near the tulles and landed 9 fish on Saturday and 7 on Sunday. We only fished about 2 hours each day.

The launch ramp is clean and easy parking. It’s also the closest lake to our house (25 minutes). Will be heading back there after our trip to 2-17 photo 2-18 photo 1-16 photo 1-17 photo 3-13 photo 4-8
