The Delta: On the Sacramento River, striper trollers are catching keeper-size to fish in the teens around Rio Vista, in Montezuma and Prospect sloughs. Shallow-running Yozuris seem to be working the best this week.

Bait fishermen have been real successful in the areas of Rio Vista Bridge, Decker Island, Sherman Island and Lights 14 and 8. Best baits are shad, sardines and anchovies. The bite has been on the slow side. Most fish are from keeper-size to 6 pounds, with an occasional fish in the teens.

Keeper-sized sturgeon are being reported in Cache Slough, Lights 8 and 44, Power Lines and Pittsburg Power Plant. Many anglers are fishing shallow waters for better results. Captain Delnero reports a lot of fish coming out of the shallow water on eel and shad.

On the San Joaquin River, trollers are working in the Mokelumne River up to Sycamore and Hog sloughs, pulling Yozuris and Rebels.

Bait fishermen are fishing the Sounding Board, Lombardi Shoals and Santa Clara Shoals and Eddos area, using shad and sardines. Most fish are running keeper-size to 8 pounds.

Lake Amador: A young local man caught two good-sized trout this week; one at 16 pounds. He was using Mice Tails and Gulp worms.

Other bank fishermen are using small jigs casting with a trout worm on it. Favorite PowerBait colors are chartreuse, salmon peach and Captain America. The favorite Mice Tail colors are red and brown, orange and pink.

Trollers are using Rapalas in black and silver, orange and gold, and hot steel. Others are pulling small flashers with a nightcrawler.

They have stocked the lake with fish up to 20 pounds in the last week.

Lake Camamche: Trollers are fishing the river channel. The bite has been on the slow side. Water is warming up a little, to 53.6 degrees, so we should start seeing more action soon.

It appears that the bait fishing is doing better than trolling in the areas of the spillway, Rabbit Creek and upriver in the coves.

Anglers report using garlic-scented PowerBait in all colors and red salmon eggs.

Bank fishermen are fishing Chevron Point, low water boat ramp area. On north shore, they're fishing the boat ramp area and overflow area, using Berkeley PowerBait in garlic scent, Berkeley Mice Tails and nightcrawlers with a marshmallow.

In the south shore pond, best lures are Berkeley PowerBait, Berkeley Mice Tails and casting Wooly Buggers.

New Melones: They are planting trout weekly now.

Trout Trollers are working the main body of the lake and inside the coves close to shore, pulling Rapalas, R-Lures in Red with Silver Flake, Needlefish and Excels.

Bank fishermen are doing well at Glory Hole Point, Angel's Cove and Tuttle Town Ramp, and the Highway 49 Bridge, using Berkeley PowerBait in salmon peach and chartreuse, Power Eggs and a nightcrawler to help float it on the water. Some anglers are casting with Kastmasters, Spinners and small Crank Baits along the shoreline.

Ocean: Crabbing is still good in Half Moon and Bodega Bay areas.

New sturgeon regulations: Use single barbless hooks; no snares or ropes of any type; fish must be netted; any fish over 68 inches must not be brought into the boat.

Lake Pardee: The lake opens Feb. 15. Motorhomes can come in on Feb. 14, but no fishing until Friday.

Question of the week: Where is Lombardi Shoals? First customer to come in with the correct answer gets a free Rebel.

Local fisherman Mike Faught is the owner of Fisherman's Friend in Lodi. To view the Fisherman's Friend website go to www.mrkokanee.com.
