    Default There is No Place Like Bullards Bar

    There is No place Like Bullards Bar. And I do not mean a bar to wet your whistle.
    This a lake in the northern Sierra Foot Hills in yuba / Sierra County.
    We call it little Shasta.
    30 miles north of Nevada City
    Free Launch, And if you Sleep on your house boat or any kind of boat, Camping is Free.
    if you Camp on the Shore ya have to pay a fee and show your porta potti , ya don't have to use it,ya just got to show u have one.
    Me and a buddy used to race our flat bottoms in a cove in the evenings just before dark.
    An AquaCraft against a Hallet, Our little oval track was a blast.
    Forget the weekends to many people and boats go on the week days Mon threw thurs

    The sheriff does patrol the lake, But I have Never been hassled about the flat bottom exhausted, But i don't race around
    when the sheriff is around.
    We wait till they pass, around the cove, (we know there route) Then the racing around begins. \
    Oh yeah, They DO NOT check for bugs in your boat

    I haven't been to Bullards in probably 10 years. We took a couple flats out there before. Back then, I had guys that barefoot with me. They could barefoot starting about 3pm because it seemed like everyone came off the lake early. Great Lake!!

    Default Smooooth waaaaater

    MONDAY THE 8/06/18, 11:00.
    WOW what a nice ski day, with the smooth water up the north fork of the Yuba river in Bullards Bar Lake.
    I WISH I HAD THE FLAT BOTTOM OUT THERE.
    No Sheriffs, all day, no people, I saw about ten boats and a hand full of house boats in the coves.

    We went there one time, a few years ago, but the water was very low, might have to try and get a few buddys to make a run up there again

    Yep no place like bullards bar lake.
    Back in the late 80's we drove our AquaCraft Flatty in the Tunnel about 1/4 mile but it got to dark, for one flash light.
    The water level was ,say 1/2 way up up the walls, It was a tight fit for the old Aqua. We were told that tunnel went under hwy 49 to Oregon creek
    our favorite place to go used to be right across from dark day launch on the left point of the Cove,but our great Government, Closed it for the wild life, We kept saying We were the wild live but the forest ranger booted us out.
    Now out favorite beach is Behind Garden point north end of cove, With luck i'll get my Campbell cruiser project done this summer.
