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.
The Delta: Trollers continue to work the Dairy, West Bank, Clyde Shoals, the mouth of the Old Sacramento up to Walnut Grove and trolling all the way up to the Sacramento shipping channel. Reports earlier in the week from the bay indicate there may be a fresh run of striper coming. Deep divers becoming more productive than shallow divers. Angry Eye Predators, Bombers and Yo-zuri working well. Red, white and chartreuse top colors again. Bait fishermen having success from Rio Vista Bridge down through Decker Island, Sherman Island to Broad Slough using shad and sardines.
