I've only sailed on Howard, Fern Ridge and Emigrant. You are so close to Lost Creek, I would think that would be worth a try as there was a fair number of sailboats in slips up there last time I was by the marina. I've heard some nice things about a few other mountain lakes in the area. Odell lake, off Hwy 58, and Whiskeytown, west of Redding come to mind. The trouble with some of our beautiful mountain lakes is that the topography of the immediately surrounding areas greatly affect the wind patterns. I've heard that at Lake of the Woods for instance, you can circumnavigate the lake without changing tacks!
Keep in touch, ore. One more post and you can pm.

I'm not sure what Dickens are, but I think they may be important and I sure as hell don't want them scared out of me.......Izzy
