Delta Mendota Canal and Sloughs

Striper 3 Catfish 2

The northern section of the California Aqueduct is moving water, and the best fishing remains in the clearest, moving water south of Highway 152 with anchovies, sardines, or bloodworms along with hard jerkbaits such as the Duo Realis 120s. A lipless crankbait in a yo-yoed presentation works at night.

In the southern section of the aqueduct in Kern County, Pete Cormier of Bob & # 39; s Bait in Bakersfield reported starting his annual June double bass tournament, and Paul Perkins leads with a striped bass of 4.11 pounds. The entrance fee is $ 1, and the leader at the end of the month will collect all entrance fees along with a contribution from Bob & # 39; s Bait. Miniatures of jumbo, anchovies, sardines, blood worms or jerkbaits such as Lucky Craft 128 and tube baits are working. Catfish are also getting involved with blood worms or chicken livers.

Safety precautions should be taken at this time of the year at all times, since the calm waters of the aqueduct are deceptive, since the calm waters can begin to flow quickly without warning, which generates strong currents and turbulence. The concrete sides can be slippery with sand, algae or gravel, which makes it almost impossible to leave without help. The waterlines and safety ladders are periodically spaced along the sides, and the safety ladders are located at the end of the waterlines and along the canal 500 feet away on alternate sides of the Aqueduct and are marked by a yellow background painted on the concrete on the staircase. . There was another drowning in a local canal near Wasco by a fisherman.

Steve Newman, of Valley Rod and Gun in Clovis, said: "The contrabass bite is kept right with the best action in depths of 15 to 30 feet with templates, Senkos, 10-inch worms, Brush Hogs or lizards, as the The big thing is to graph the fish and then work them until they are ready to go in. There must be some activity around the prey, as the temperature continues to rise as the bass moves upwards along the rocks with deep crankbaits.In the mornings, there is a high-water bite with walking-style lures, such as Zara Spooks or Whopper Ploppers. "The type of fish bite has not yet emerged.The lake rose to 90%.

At Don Pedro, Monte Smith of Gold Country Sport Fishing had a late start during a midweek trip, and said: "After the launch at 9 am, we put five kokanee before they wanted to return at 1 pm losing three more or four fish, the fish have moved, which is quite typical at this time of year, so you have to look for them We were marking fish, but the action was not like last week I have been running a combination of little screams, Uncle Larry's spinners or Apex's lures behind a Sling Blade. "

Mike Gomez, of Berserk Baits, said: "The bite of the sea bass occurs during the first hours of the day before the fish move to deep water at 50 feet with plastics in the drop-shot or jigs. "Large streams or glidebaits also produce a little high-quality horn early in the morning, but the spawning of the shadow is limited to isolated sections of the lake up to the river arm."

Pardee continues to shed 101%, while Don Pedro has increased from 88% to 92%.

The fishing group Mother Lode Kayak arrived at Lake McClure on Sunday with 64 kayakers for the largest tournament so far in northern California. Shad is spawning throughout the reservoir, and the reaction sting in surface and subsurface waters has been outstanding.

Ryan Cook, from Ryan Cook's Guide Service, said: "We had 64 kayakers, and the three finalists got their fish to fall in scales or in water lures, shading is spawning everywhere, all over the lake. Found on the steep walls of the canyons and on the back of the grassy plains, I have never seen this lake so healthy.With all the shading, 100% of our lures have been imitations of shading with flukes, lures Surface waters or spinnerbaits We have increased some decent limits to 15 pounds this week, which is very good for McClure. "

Cook and Mother Lode Kayak Fishing took on the task of organizing a fundraising event on June 15 for Mason Ferruli de Ripon, called Fishing McClure for Mason. Cook said: "We will be leaving Barrett's South Cove with an all-inclusive $ 200 entry fee, including Big Fish, and the tournament will be limited to 80 boats."

New melons / tulloch reservoir

Bass 3 Crappie 2 Catfish 2 Trout 2 Kokanee 3

The kokanee action continues to be solid in New Melones as the number of Kokanee fishermen from northern California are converging on the lake. It is not inconceivable that the lake relinquishes a 20-inch kokanee at the end of summer.

Monte Smith of Gold Country Sport Fishing was at the lake this week, and said: "We finished with 12 kokanee, losing another dozen in the process along with a 6 pound brown that was thrown in. Tom Van Fleet from Oakdale caught and threw the brown at 25 feet, and our best action was 25 to 40 feet with Uncle Larry's spinning wheels, little hoochies or Apex lures behind Sling Blades, the interesting thing is that a lot of the fish are biting very light, and you have to be In the reeds right away, some of the bigger kokanee are taking it out of the launch of the stabilizer, but a lot of them are just taking advantage of the lures, I've been changing the presentations to see what works best. "We've stayed away from the fleet, and there have been up to 35 boats during a working day near the Spillway. "

Alan Fong, from the fisherman's store in Sacramento, is contemplating a trip to New Melones this week in search of the largest kokanee, and the attraction of big fish can lead him to drive an extra hour to this lake instead of approaching Berryessa. " .

Mark Watzke continues to find kokanee limits at 17 inches, and has been working away from Spillway since most of the boats have congregated in the area. He said: "With all the boats in the Spillway, we went around the middle of the lake until we found some who wanted to play." Once we were with them, it was a constant action during the following hours, but we fought to get them to the network, losing four to get the final fish in the box at 9:45 a.m. "

John Liechty, of Xperience's Fishing Guide Service, said that "for large and spotted bass," the bass is excellent since the weather is beginning to stabilize. The bite was phenomenal during the days of inclement weather, but slowed a few days after the weather cleared. The sting of high waters has not existed, and our best action has been with swimsuits or small plastics on a Ned-Rig or crazy platform. Sea bass is found in shallow water, 5 to 15 feet, with most spots 15 to 25 feet. "There is a lot of flooded vegetation as the lake has once again risen to the level it had in February, and with the new growth, there are a lot of young and blue in the grass."

The lake is rising once again, and rose from 83% to 86%.

Pines / Kings River Reservoir

Bass 2 Trout 2 Kokanee 0 King salmon 0 Catfish 2 Crappie 2

"Pine Flat Reservoir has been hit or lost by the stain and bass of the big mouth, since the melting of snow has poured into the reservoir." The low Kings River in Tulare County has been closed for all recreational use due to the rapid flow of the Army Corps of Engineers. Water release through the Pine Flat dam. Kings County authorities closed the river access two weeks ago, and more than 300 people have been evacuated from Riverland Resort in Kingsburg when the water filled the parking lot and the soaking wet mobile homes. Recreational use includes all boating and swimming.

In Pine Flat, Steve Newman, of Valley Rod and Gun in Clovis, said: "There are some good quality bass in post-spawn mode, but you have to look for them. Jake Figgs from our store came out this week, and he fought and ended up with just one fish after running around everywhere. The best action is at the main lake for larger fish at depths of 20 to 30 feet with swimbaits, jigs, spinnerbaits and umbrella platforms. There are low bass that run along the coasts when the tarpon has moved back to the coves, and jerkbaits or Topwater Poppers are working on the coves like Windy Gap and Lefevre Creek. With cold water entering the upper part of the reservoir, the trout fishermen drag salmon eggs or night fishermen into the moving water on Trimmer Marina. Crappie is being held in the flooded trees below Trimmer, and the mint or shadow patterns are picking up some slabs. The warmer weather will make these fish more active. "

Pine Flat fell from 77% to 74%.

Reservoir of San Luis and O'Neill Forebay

Striper 2 Catfish 2 Bass 2 Crappie 2

The San Luis reservoir continues to fall, and although the striped bass has fallen into the water column, the action of the troll seems to be improving. The action of the shore with the bait seems to be slower, but there are still some fishermen that launch baits of reaction on the surface and under the water from the coasts.

Mickey Clements at Coyote Bait and Tackle at Morgan Hill said: "The trolling bite is improving, as most of the boats point to Portuguese Cove or the submerged islands in front of the Romero Visitor Center with Lucky Craft Pointer 128 in Ayu or American Shad "

Roger George, of the Roger George Guide Service, said he hosted two professional fishermen from the saltwater tournament in San Diego, Chad Gierlich and Al Vásquez, both from Hookup Baits, on Thursday and Friday. "It was an epic journey! We left on Thursday, and before being hit by sudden winds of more than 30 miles per hour, Chad got a better 30-inch player. Friday was better, but the fish were inactive and I was not finding fish. That's when my big engine went off; I thought we were finished. Fortunately, with Bill Manuszak's phone help at Ed & # 39; s Marine, we fixed it. I made a run to a new area in the west and started trolling, seeing fish that seemed active. We began to hook colored Lucky Crafts trolling, various hard baits and connection templates. The crazy bite lasted four hours. We ended up with more than 50 stripers released for the day with most in the class from 21 to 26 inches more. Chad got another PB with a 30-inch heavy fish that weighed 10 pounds and Al had a 9-pound fish. In a lapse of 10 minutes, both fish lost in the teenagers on the boat. Having two efficient professional fishermen on board changed the numbers we could produce during the dive. Then, it stopped in its tracks! The next day he returned to the subnormal. The general bite has been sporadic but mostly slow. "

Steve Newman at Valley Rod and Gun in Clovis said: "The striper bite has continued to be good with the jerkbaits, but the new color of the umbrella platform, Purple Urkle, has sold well. We have not been selling much bait since the fishermen are really focusing on using hard reaction baits. "

There are not many changes in the banking, being the rule the use of small basses striped with anchovies, sardines, blood worms or frozen sheets near the moving water that surrounds the Bridge of Highway 33 or Check 12.

San Luis fell from 73% to 71% of capacity.

Under 3 Trout 2 Kokanee 2

Steve Newman said: "The bass bite has been very good in the shallow areas around the docks with Senkos, Brush Hogs or baits of similar creatures in a slow fall.The crankbaits or ripbaits are effective in the rocky areas, but the More effective is throwing a Senko in a green pumpkin, a purple green or blue in the shaded areas at the corners of the docks.There is a good kind of bass from 3 to 5 pounds available, but the basses are not in chase mode. The inclement weather of recent weeks has delayed the arrival of heavy recreational craft traffic, but this will soon change with the warm weather and the end of the traditional school year. "

Todd Wittwer, of the Guide Service, said: "The trout trolling has been going up and down in some days of very good rainbow action with the MAG Tackle spinners behind a dodger at depths of up to 20 feet." .

Kokanee 3 Trout 2

The water temperature in Shaver Lake has increased steadily over the past week, and the kokanee bite remains consistent with more and more boats attacking landlocked salmon.

Dick Nichol of Dick & # 39; s Fishing Charters said: "After a few very rainy, snowy and cold weeks in Shaver Lake, we found that the lake level actually receded a few feet when Southern California Edison lowered the lake from 3 % to 5% as a result of the recent storm and the heavy snow pack We continue to find the limits of kokanee, but the bite is not what it had been before the storms The water temperature rose from 49 to 55 degrees, but the residents of Shaver Lake, Lee Gates, David Colliver and Tom Mozzetti joined me for a morning trip through three boundaries of kokanee with Mozzetti also picking up a rainbow of trophies.Friday, Rich Hughett and his fiance Bobby Baccei of Monterrey were limited with quality kokanee and a rainbow trout, and both days we set the limits with Koke Busters of pink or orange Dick with shrimp-scented corn behind a Flasher Mountain / purple / pink. Saturday produced limits once again for Frank Esparza and his grandson Chris Flores de Fresno, and Chris also got an 18-inch brown trout and a rainbow trophy. We have been tagging many fish from 23 to 27 feet, but these fish have not been biting. The best places have been from Point to Black Rock. "

Todd Wittwer, of the Guide Service, said: "The thunderstorms during the weekend affected the action a bit, but we ended up with 10 kokanee, losing another dozen, while we pulled the exclusive squids of Rocky Mountain Tackle on white Pearl behind a purple / pink Dodger of the tsunami 15 to 25 feet from Black Rock to the island There have been some deeper fish, but our best action has been in this range. "

Tom Oliviera of Tom Oliviera Fishing said: "I had the pleasure of helping celebrate the birthday of Jeff Ostrom with a fishing trip. The fishing was not turned off at the beginning, but when we found it it was a constant bite in the water of 57.6 degrees. We use several MAG TACKLE Dodger / hoochie steups. but the best was Orange Stealth paired with hoochie with orange-tipped glitters and perfumed orange corn. The kokanee are moving a bit now.

Delta / Stockton

Bass 3 Striper 2 Sturgeon 3 Catfish 2 Bluegill 2 Shad 2

Los bajos rayados se están moviendo de regreso a la Bahía de San Francisco desde el río superior, y después de esta próxima luna llena, los rios descendentes deberían estar inundando a través del Delta hacia las pilas de roca en el centro de la Bahía de San Francisco. Las sombras continúan migrando a través del Delta hacia los afluentes superiores de Feather, Yuba y American River, y la acción del esturión es sólida para aquellos que desean sentarse en el ancla.

Para el contrabajo, Clyde Wands, experto en trolling superficial, estaba en el río Sacramento a lo largo de Cisjordania hasta Hobo Beach, y dijo: "No hay muchos stripers en el sistema, al menos donde estamos pescando". Recogimos dos stripers de 24 y 26 pulgadas en Cisjordania y otro de 6 libras en Hobo Beach. Un amigo estaba en Broad Slough, y terminó con un límite de stripers apenas legales. Volví a salir nuevamente el viernes, y terminamos con tres stripers a 8 libras a lo largo de Cisjordania con el striper más grande en un troll poco profundo con un P-Line Angry Eye Minnow. Los peces están dispersos, y todo se ha ralentizado, pero sé que los intermedios regresarán a través del Delta durante todo el mes de junio. Estos peces fueron engendrados esta semana ".

Jeff Soo Hoo, de Soo Hoo's Sport Fishing, en Lauritzen's Yacht Harbor en Oakley, cerró su operación de Delta durante los meses de verano del fin de semana pasado y dijo: "Miramos a nuestro alrededor en el lado de Sacramento la semana pasada, y los stripers están dispersos. ”

Para la lubina, Alan Fong, del almacén de pescadores en Sacramento, entró en el norte del Delta durante la semana, y dijo: "Golpeamos las malezas, sin encontrar más de 2.5 libras en la marea pequeña que elevó la maleza solo unos pocos pies. This week should be much better. There are areas with enough weed growth to punch.”

Captain Steve Mitchell of Hook’d Up Sport Fishing was out on Sunday with friends in the Big Cut, and they caught and released 6 sturgeon that were either slot-limit or oversized using salmon roe. He said, “The sturgeon bite is as good as it has been all year long, but there is hardly anyone out there fishing.”

Tony Lopez of Benicia Bait said, “The wind was the big story on Sunday, and the high gusts kept many fishermen from heading out. I am hearing good reports from the Big Cut and Montezuma Slough for sturgeon with salmon roe, but there haven’t been many heading out there. The grass shrimp is getting larger and larger as Curtis Hayes is back out again with his larger net.”

There are areas of clear water in the San Joaquin system, and in order to find quality largemouth bass, clear water is a necessity. Striped bass action is best along the west side of the San Joaquin system. The wind was a limiting factor over the weekend with high gusts affecting the ability to fish on Sunday.

For largemouth bass, Randy Pringle, the Fishing Instructor, said, “The Delta is going to break wide open as it gets warmer and warmer every day. The topwater and frog bite will be happening, and normally, this bite would already be happening, but it is late this year with all of the cold weather and rain.”

Vince Borges of Vince Borges Outdoors said, “The bass bite is getting pretty good, and I participated in the 50-team Costa Bass N’Fly event over the weekend and ended up 4th which made me pretty happy since I rarely fly fish. We saw so many fish moving up, and I think this June will be the biggest spawn of the year. I was working to pick up a 12-pound largemouth on the fly, and I hooked the buck bass that was on her bed before having her hit the fly at least 7 times without getting hooked. I stayed on this fish for quite some time as this would have put us over the top in the tournament, and we saw a dozen largemouth bass in the 5- to 10-pound range swim past her bed before she chased these fish off. This next week is going to be exciting as the frog bite should take off after this wave of spawn. The heat wave will bring out the frog bite, and usually we are starting to slow down in June, but the best time of year is just coming on. The water is dirty in the south Delta, but I have been finding clear water. The tournament weights in June are going to rise significantly.”

Dan Mathisen of Dan’s Delta Outdoors at Russo’s Marina on Bethel Island confirmed Borges’s observations, saying, “There are a lot of fresh fish moving up to spawn, and the spinnerbait and frog bite is picking up. Punching the weeds is also effective. For striped bass, I have been working Sherman Lake with Optimum’s Bad Bubba Shad swimbait or the River2Sea Swaver for stripers from 20 to 26 inches with the occasional 30-inch striper in the mix. The wind has been a factor, and it was whitecapping on Frank’s Tract on Sunday afternoon.”

Captain Jeff Soo Hoo of Soo Hoo’s Sport Fishing finished his striper season on the San Joaquin on Sunday, but he said, “We had to work for them, and after scoring limits by 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, it took until 1:30 p.m. for limits on Sunday. The wind was really bad, and we had to hide in False River for our fish with minnows or mudsuckers as the spoon bite has slowed. The stripers are scattered and they aren’t really aggressively feeding.”

H and R Bait in Stockton reported 70 pounds of fresh shad came into the shop on the weekend, but few anglers have been out along the local sloughs.

At Nacimiento, there were some impressive weights brought to the scale during Saturday’s Best Bass Tournament with the winning team posting a 3-pound average which is excellent for this spotted bass lake. The spots have moved out into deeper water with the dropping lake levels, and they are scattered. There are areas in which the shad are spawning, and the white bass are found around the shad spawns in the coves with small white topwater lures or spoons such as Kastmasters, Bluegill have also moved into deeper water, and red worms are working for the panfish. Some huge crappie to 2 pounds have been dragged out of the brush with minijigs, but the slabs are also moving out with the dropping water levels. worms are the ticket for the panfish. The fuel dock is now selling fuel again from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The lake dropped slightly to 79%.

At San Antonio, the lake held at 42%, and the lake is now open daily at the South Shore, but there is no announced plan for the opening of the North Shore Marina. Catfish remain the top option with cut baits such as mackerel loaded with scent. There have been no additional striped bass reported since the lineside that was landed the previous week as there has been concern that the striped bass had died off with the low water conditions during the drought. Bass fishing remains slow.

At Lopez Lake, there is a topwater bite in the early morning before dropping to the bottom with shad-patterned plastics in 4- to 6-inch range on the drop shot or Texas rig. The majority of bass are largemouth with a few smallmouth in the mix. There is an algae bloom forming on the lake, and the water is cloudy in areas. Crappie are found around brush in the shallows with minijigs, and bluegill or red ear perch are also a possibility with red worms.

At Santa Margarita, quality largemouth bass in the 3- to 5-pound range are possible with big plastics on the drop-shot or Texas rig as 6 to 8-inch worms or Senkos are effective along with large creature baits or jigs. The reaction bite has slowed. Catfish are taken on mackerel of similar cut baits near the marina shoreline. Boaters are advised to contact the lake’s ranger station at 805-788-2397 for information on the availability of the single ramp.
