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.
The Delta: Spring striper fishing is in full swing on the Sacramento River. Many pods of fish are on the move through the system. Steamboat Slough all the way down through Sherman Island have been productive with some fish in excess of 30 pounds being taken.

Bait fishermen are using shad and sardines.
