Yuba Reservoir & State Park

Fishing report

  • Rating: Slow
  • Conditions: Water levels are very low and continue to fall. The reservoir is currently 48 percent full. The buoys have been put in, and both launch ramps have docks. The restrooms and showers are now open. Anglers are catching fish, but it is a slow bite. Try the backs of the bays (and near the dropoffs) with Maniac minnows, Husky Jerks or spinnerbaits and fish extremely shallow for northerns. Perch-colored jigs seem to be the most consistent producers. Water temperatures are hovering around 50 degrees.
