Striper bite still smacking in local rivers

The Delta: On the Sacramento River, there are still plenty of stripers in the system with fish being caught in the bay with eggs still in them. The wind has hampered anglers for several days, but as the wind reduces trolling should pick back up. Trolling 12- to 15-feet deep using deep-diving Yo-zuri’s, Angry Eye’s and Rebels producing best results. Best locations for trolling the Sacramento River side is from the Old Dairy to Walnut Grove.

Anglers taking kokanee limits at Lake Pardee

The Delta: The wind has limited boaters this past week on the Sacramento River, so the trolling reports were bleak. Bank and bait angling were pretty good. With the recent smolt plants in various locations in the Delta and with the winds reducing the striper fishing should pick back up. Top-water fishing for stripers has picked up the last couple weeks with reports of 30-pound fish being caught.

Bass bite still on at New Melones

The Ocean: Rock fishing opens May 1 and it should be a good season. Good weather and seas from Shelter Cove down through Monterey Bay allowed the boats to get out last week. Salmon fishing was better from the Gate north, but Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz did improve some. Live bait now available in San Francisco.

Ocean salmon season starts with a bang

Ocean: Salmon season started off with a bang last weekend. Trolling and mooching were both successful with many boats being limited out and back to the marina by noon. Half Moon Bay south to Monterey Bay was very productive. Bodega Bay was just as successful for bigger boats that could handle the rough seas over the opening weekend.
