Black Butte Reservoir, and Big Crappie. It’s a lock. Here the fishing is good for crappie into September and October. When it‘s really hot, they go deep, so simply fish when it‘s early and late.
At a lake known for crappie, in March and April you get mostly pan-sized ones, lots of ‘em. But in May fish 1 to 1 1/2 pounds, up to 2pounds from the south end, and also around the dam.
Catfishing? Black Butte has channel cats, blue cats, and bullheads, and many in 8 to 12- pound catfish. For catfish, refer to our fishing map, and try the confluence of the two creek channels, plus the two upper ends of the arms, on drop offs above the channels.
You can also catch black bass, bluegill, a few stripers, some smallmouth bass or even bow hunt for carp.
Seven miles long, with 40 miles of shoreline, Black Butteis 12 miles west of Interstate 5 at Orland, 137miles north of Sacramento.
As our fishing map shows, two long arms, Burris Creek, running west to east, and Orland Buttes, running southwest to northeast. According to our fishing report, the far ends of these arms, plus near the dam, are the best places to find crappie, especially in the hot months.
There are flooded willows in areas of both arms, and at the dam. As the lake lowers over the summer, catch them in 3 to 4 feet of water around Fisherman’s Coveand shallows, as noted in our Fishing Map.
But in the summer, fish in about 10 feet of water, or possibly down to 15, around these willows.Live minnows are the bait to use, purchased at the marina, place hook under the dorsal fin with a No. 6or No. 4 bait hook on a 4 to 6-pound test line.
The minnows are usually fished below bobbers, three feet of leader to a snap swivel , then clip the bobber on the main line above the swivel.
Also be sure to stick on a split shotabout a foot above the hook to make sure the minnowstays off the surface.If things are slow, takeoff that bobber, drop the bait down to the bottom, and reel up to wherethe crappie are located.
Try a Mini Jig,purple-white, red-white, yellow-white and green-white seem to the the popular combinations, andtry it under abobber or jig it without the bobber.
The best fishing will be early mornings and afternoons after 4 or 5.
Largemouth and smallmouth bass can be found trolling or casting and retrieving plugs in front of Squaw Point and Wackerman’s Butte, and in the dam area. Best bet for stripers is along the buoy line in front of the marina and the dam area.
