Now that we have water and spring/summer is coming was wondering how many active NorCal boaters we have on here. What boat do you have? Where do you go? Lake soda of choice?  I am itchin for some action. It is almost time.

Will be at Shasta probably about 4 times this year. Also want to get to McClure at least one time.  Berryessa is the stand by.

That is a decent drive. Fourish hours?  Surprised you havent made the shorter drive for a major weekend at camp far west. Almost a lil disappointed in you.

I have some friends that come down from Oregon, so it makes it roughly halfway for us.

Camp Far West is not super family friendly just to go boating.  I like floating on the houseboat in a nice quiet cove, throw a fishing line in the water,  eat way too much food, drink way too much bourbon and hang with family and friends in the quiet.

All while making a couple of exploratory boat runs, do some hiking in the mountains and expel some rounds out of the .22 and the 1911.

Besides,  I can be on the lake in four hours and instantly start the recharge process,  Camp Far West is a little over 3 hours and you have to set up camp. It's a wash for me.

I hear ya. That all sounds great and makes perfect sense.

And you are right, CFW isnt super family friendly yet I still drag mine out there from time to time. Lol

BUT rollin into the cove on a major weekend with 50+ hotrods doin their thing makes for a good time.

Dropping anchor in a quite cove is more my style as well. Although I've never been to CFW I've seen the pics and Father's Day looks like a hell of a good time. I don't have a drag boat just a weekend warrior. Is CFW big enough to peel away from the crowd and find a quite cove to hang in?

Me and the little woman from cowboy country , Clovis California. Been going to Pine Flat , Millerton Lake , Kings River in Reedley Cal , Cricket Hollow, Royal Oak Resort, Lindy's Landing,all within 45min drive. Been "doing" them for 45yrs. Got'a Shasta trip planed for mid May, with several other MrEd owners that should be memorable!

Pine Flat, heard good things. Do they allow two stroke Sea Doos?

Uses to hang on the Kings River years ago. Need to get back there.

Pine Flat no problem. Plenty running there. Flow at the Kings is real low now, One month it'll be raging w/ lots of floters. Remember those? Can be real problem. John Law's restricted speed limit to 35, finding to many "floaters"😖

Gtjets, just ask'n,you feel like setting a little Shasta Run up? I'll help all I can,I am pretty sure everyone would too. Might be  memorable.  Just asking.

Well sounds good. How's about a latter June or late July trip for us NorCal bunch. And any "others" that can go.  Just tossing that out to chew on for now. We really have no preference as to where, we retired boaters.

The Sacramento Delta seems appealing to me. Anyone know of a place that's quiet , serene there. Something far away for the main channel.

We are for sure going to be camping at Rollins Lake this year. Nice mountain lake. Not too high of elevation

Monday to friday morning is the only quiet time.  And the south delta is a mess all weekend.  No drag racing, just not a lot of space.  But a ton of water to explore.  Wakeboarders were bad, but the wake surfers have destroyed the water on the south end.  Pretty useless for our types on the weekend

The delta is pretty fun down by Rio Vista, lots of channels to go explore and some good restaurants. Overall it's pretty quite down there once you get out a bit.

Between Grass Valley and Colfax. Awesome foothills lake, really good camping, and great glass mornings for a loud rip across the lake.
