I used to flyfish San Luis and O'Neal Forebay back in the hey-day. Largest fish was 35lb'er , and released numerous 10 to 20 lb fish regularly.
One day I saw a van pull up backing into the shore. The one individual got out pulled out a rubber raft and proceeded to run a long line with aleast 100 hooks on it. I called Cal-Tip right there at the time and reported the crime and all I got was this statement " it's either this or food stamps". At that point, I lost all respect for California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
Looking back, and what it San Luis is now,
It makes me sick on what happened.
