Well just came back, weather was nice, drive was fun goin up and down the narrow mountain road, Gish was, eh.. I caught a 3 pounder after irritating it. I was dropping my lure on the bass because it didn't want to bite, so I had to annoy it. Heck, the only thing biting was the mosquitos. Anyways, DFG was telling me to return next month..

They say it because of the mercury levels. I been eating bass from there for ever.

I suppose I would eat Clear Lake fish once in a while.

Same issue with all the lakes around San Jose. Quicksilver mines contaminated everything.

How was the alge and aquatic weeds?

Should be a late blooming due to the temperature and excess rains (water level).

Glad you had fun, sorry if you had to purchase the latest scam with that new muscle inspection sticker.

Weeds and algae was everywhere. I wouldn't eat fish everyday.. But hey that's everywhere you go fishing.. On the piers it's states something like calmin down on eating fish due to mercury levels.. But even our meat and vegetables.. Do we really know where our food comes fron when eating at Texas Roadhouse? Haha if it's taste good but is bad, dammit what a way to die! Haha

FYI, DFG has a page under the Alerts section describing the Eating Guidelines.

You can read about it here: http://www.oehha.ca.gov/fish/so_cal/

There's a lot of information otherwise I would have cut n' pasted it.
