hmm. found the thread in bass forum, saw it in here too, lol. this is what i posted:
Honestly, this time of the year its not quite worth it. After August, the trout REALLY taper off, due to the res. being overfished
Also, its not a great bass fishery to begin with. sure theyre in there, but not enough to really have a great day. you might get 1 or 2 trout for a day out there and btwn 0-1 bass.. I'd suggest going to ollalla res, out by toledo.
But, if youre goin out to big creek anyway, the best rig for the trout is a 1/4 oz egg sinker, above a barrel swivel, between 3'-4' leader, around 6-8# test, with a size 8 baitholder hook, and TWO pieces of chartreusse powerbait magnum floating balls.
Ive limited out in as little as 1 hr there on that setup during june, and it'll catch fish all the way through winter.
For the bass, the best way I've found is simply a 1/4 oz white curltail jig.
Trout can range from 6-7inches, all the way up to 30 or more
bass can get up to a couple lbs, if youre lucky.
Hope this helped, and good luck
Oh, and the upper res is almost always better fishing,
and the bass are normally around the end of the first lake, under the fallen trees, etc.
