Whiskeytown was a hot one this year with great fish on the chew and the weather...pushing into the low 100's for 100+ participants. We pushed back the weigh time by an hour and removed the raffle to help get us back on the road to AC sooner. There was opportunity to get fish in the 17 inch class, 2lb class and a good mix of year classes that bodes well for the future. Fish were generally 40 to 60 feet across the lake in many locations starting to school and relate to structure.
