The northern section of the California Aqueduct continues to heat up, and more and more fishermen are starting to work the floodgates with large weights, large swimbaits in shadow patterns or soaking bait with 5 to 6 ounces of weight to stay on top flowing

In the southern section of the aqueduct in Kern County, Bob Batesfield's Pete Cormier said: "Fishing with striped bass is decent with small jumbo, anchovies, sardines, blood worms or jerkbaits like Lucky Craft. 128s along with tube baits. The catfish is 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. .

Steve Newman, of Valley Rod and Gun in Clovis, said: "The contrabass bite has been unpredictable with the best action on the islands' ridges at depths of 15 to 30 feet with swimbaits or jigs of Slow crawling There is a wakebait bite early in the morning, which means that the low puff is moving up early in the day This is the time of the year when you work without tips on the main lagoon points and the piles of rock, and the key is to grind the bait to structure or the yo-yoing.The arm of the river is eliminating the large mouth bass in the range of 2 to 4 pounds with crankbaits, jigs or square squad Senkos around areas Grass with rock The arm of the river is lighter, while the main lake is beginning to show a bit of flowering.The type of fish bite has not yet emerged.

Newman said: "Hensley remains calm but consistent for large basses in the 2 to 3 pound range at the high end with a lot of smaller basses. There is a template bite along with Senkos at the bottom in darker colors with a large trailer or tail, and the reaction bite should improve with spinnerbaits or lower spaces. The big shot is still scarce. " The lake increased slightly to 68 percent.

Lake Don Pedro

Bass 3 Trout 2 Kokanee 3 King salmon 1 Crappie 2

The bite of the upstream lows in Don Pedro has been encouraged, and there was a single intense limit during the event of the Best Low Tournaments last weekend. Kokanee is another solid option, and landlocked salmon is in as good shape as it is in memory.

Monte Smith, of Gold Country Sport Fishing, had inclement weather this week, and found good action for a quality kokanee despite the impending storms and the full moon. He said: "We must have lost our first four tricks, because once we pulled the bars, two rods were fired, but we found a good bite and ended up with 11 kokanee and 2 rainbow trout, the key was to stay away from the other boats They worked in the area and found our own water when the bite went out every time another boat started coming in. The Micro-Hoochies and Uncle Larry's spinning wheels behind a Sling Blade or Vance's Dodger in 33 55 feet have been working, but the deeper bars have not been as busy as those higher up in the water column, one of the kokanee was a 16-inch, 1.15-pound man, and he already had teeth in his upper jaw These are the cleanest and brightest kokanee I have seen in Don Pedro without parasites and with a twinkle of ten cents, but I am afraid that the action will go off sooner rather than later, since the kokanee is already ezando to show signs of turns. "The water temperature dropped from 70 degrees earlier in the week to 66 degrees after the storms."

The best bass tournaments held an event on the lake on Saturday with 41 boats, and tournament director Kevin Cheek said: "We had an inclement weather in all the tournaments this spring, and we would have had more than 60 fishermen if The weather was clear, Christian Ostrander and Ronnie Heil got the first place for more than 11 pounds with 27.13 pounds with a big fish with 7.69, but they did not reveal their winning technique We heard about the good action of the Topwater Spooks along with the templates, and there are several fish suspended. "

Ryan Cook, of Ryan Cook & # 39; s Fishing, confirmed the bite on top of the water, along with springs and jigs. He said: "Most of the time I've been launching the River2Sea Rover or the Vixen of Reaction Innovation, and I prepare myself with both every day since the bass prefer one over the other on different days."

The lake has increased to 90 percent.

South Fork, Rocky Point and Camp 9 are still three of the best locations, bass fishing is decent with crankbaits, plastics or deep diving templates, but the bite of the swimbait has been quiet.The lake increased from 56 to 60 percent. The upper and lower waters are still high with melting snow since water emissions have been high, catfish, bass and trout have been caught in the river near the city due to high water levels.

Ryan Cook, of Ryan Cook's Fishing, continues to find a great action in the water on the lake, and took young Anthony Vierra of Atwater along with his father Tony for good food. Cook said: "We found a great action with the River2Sea Rover and the Vixen of Reaction Innovation, and I keep the two lures ready, since the bass changes every day, Anthony had a great day, and we caught and launched more than 80 bass in the lures, the bottom of the fat worm is also working, and there are some good fish in the mix when I launched a 6-pound site this week, there's also a jig bite. "

At Millerton, Steve Newman, of Valley Rod and Gun, said: "The lake has been very, very consistent for numbers with a big fish that goes from 2.5 to 3 pounds. There are many double basses still crossing the coasts, and you can capture 50 fish with only 10 guards. There is a good bite in the water, and Jake Figgs from our store found a good action by throwing the little Kei Tech into a quarter-ounce ball head and counting the lure five or six times more. The low ones are moving away from the points in the main lake, and they are eating it well. There is a subsurface bite with small spinnerbaits and a water bite with Poppers. The best bass level has been difficult to locate, and the key is to find them and put the bait on their face. "The lows are scattered on the arm of the river, and the best action on the main lake, from the Winchell inlet along the Wood side to the East Bay, and the jigs, springs or senkos are working at depths from 15 to 20 feet. " There has been no report of striped bass.

Millerton went up from 74 to 84 percent.

New melons / tulloch reservoir

Bass 3 Crappie 2 Catfish 2 Trout 2 Kokanee 3

It has been years since New Melones was a viable option for Kokanee fishermen, as this was the signature of Mother Lode Lake kokanee for years, but this year's phenomenal start continues with the 17-inch kokanee reported this week. The rising waters that cover new areas will only improve the action of bass and solids.

Alan Fong, of the fisherman's store in Sacramento, said: "Big Al Ezell has been tracking down the Paulina Peak Tackle benders in front of the hoochies, and has been picking up kokanee limits at 17 inches with a number at 15-16 Inch range.

Mark Watzke returned to the lake on Sunday and said: "We had a bit of everything on the front of the weather, as it went from being sunny and calm to thunder and lightning in the distance to a huge wind storm that blew over the spillway. A matter of seconds and turned the lake into white covers, the wind did not last long, and we were able to find some protected water to get out. "We lost more fish than we landed, but we still managed to set kokanee quality limits before noon" .

John Liechty of the Xperience Fishing Guide Service said that the lake level has risen and we will start to see great things as the water floods the green grass and new vegetation. When this happens, the fish in the lake are completely different, as the templates and plastics do not work as well, while charlatans, spinnerbaits and high-water lures are detached from the shade and the blue turtles move towards them. shallow waters and newly flooded. This normally happens at the beginning of the season, but this water will give life to the bass fishery. "

The lake is rising once again, and reached 83 percent.

Pine / Kings River Reservoir

Bass 3 Trout 2 Kokanee 0 King salmon 0 Catfish 2 Crappie 2

Pine Flat and Millerton continue to be the primary locations for bass fishermen from the Fresno area, as spotted and large bass are active and willing to eat a variety of baits. The high levels of water have contributed to an increase in the number of seabass in both lakes that have been dominated by seabass in recent years.

Steve Newman, of Valley Rod and Gun in Clovis, said: "Most of the lows in Pine Flat are in post-spawn mode, and the larger fish have retreated into deeper water. There are still a lot of basses of 1 to 2 pounds along the banks of the main lake, and these fish eat anything, from the spinnerbaits to the hallucinated Senkos to the templates. There have been some high water fish with River2Sea Whopper Ploppers, Poppers or walking baits, and the tarpon is moving towards the arm of the river and is forming. There has been a lot of shad activity in the lake. Crappie fishing has been decent at the back of the coves on the main lake around the flooded trees, but the colder water temperatures on the arm of the river. Fishermen fish at night in the Deer Creek houseboats with small small fish or minijigs. "The lower Kings River was affected by heavy water discharges, and there was a safety warning for wading in the river due to The high tide The fishermen will have to increase the weight of their kastmasters or spinners to stay in the high water, and the best action has been in the slower and wider stretches of the river for the planted rainbows.

Pine Flat went up from 74 to 77 percent.

Reservoir of San Luis and O'Neill Forebay

Striper 2 Catfish 2 Bass 2 Crappie 2

The San Luis reservoir continues to fall, but the bite of surface and subsurface waters is occurring for those who work on the shorelines with Spooks, jerkbaits and flukes. The inclemencies of the weather were favorable for the navigators, and many boats stayed away from the lake due to the strong winds that required the activation of the warning lights.

Steve Newman, from Valley Rod and Gun in Clovis, said: "St. Louis continues to fish well, and most of our coastal fishermen have been working on Dinosaur Point with jerkbaits Duo Realis or Lucky Craft Pointers in white or shaded patterns. The trollers work in deeper waters, as the fish disperse and deepen. There have not been many boils on the surface, but the subsurface bite is still good. Most of our Fresno fishermen head to the big lake and avoid the O'Neill Forebay, which has been pushing water from the big lake to the California aqueduct. There have been more fishermen in the aqueduct, and they are soaking bait or throwing ripbaits. There is a good bite at night with Rat-L ​​traps of ½ ounce or more in chrome / blue or chrome / black, and the successful technique is that of these baits. The bite of surface water has yet to emerge in the aqueduct. "

Roger George of Roger George's Guide Service said he explored the lake only on Friday until noon when the big storm hit. "I had not been out for a while, so I was doubly worried that finding the fish could be difficult during a full moon just before a big storm along with the falling water, I took a chance and went to an area where I rarely fish, and when I started fishing, I was immediately hooked in. I ended up with 20 fish released in 4 and a half hours, several 6 to 7 pounds or more and a fat 13 pounds, in small fish bait color shaded 50 to 75 feet deep, the real problem was finding fish, I checked a lot of other areas later and none of them had any fish, it was a strange day, but I was very lucky to find some fish. general was difficult for many. "

Alex Tran, of Coyote Bait and Tackle in Morgan Hill, said: "We have been selling tons of extra jumbo and extra extra for those who are adrift on the main lake, and the trollers are also working deep with P-Line Predator Minnows or umbrellas, platforms in the downrigger, there is a bite in the upper part of the water early and late along with jerkbaits and flukes, the forebay has been limited to bait fishermen, and there have been some catfish, anchovies or frozen shad they have been working for the contrabass in the California aqueduct. "

San Luis fell from 78 to 73 percent of capacity.

In the O'Neill Forebay, few fishermen point to the rest area since the water discharges have been weighed with the pumping in and out of the small reservoir. Catfish are shown with anchovies, sardines, blood worms or frozen tarpon, while bait is also the best option for the contrabass near the water moving around the Highway 33 Bridge or Check 12.

High Sierra

Under 3 Trout 2 Kokanee 2

Both the large basses and the stained basses are still in the pre-spawn for the reproduction mode, since the water temperature has finally moved by mid-60 degrees. Some quality lows have been removed from the docks after 10 a.m., as the fish will move towards the front edge of the docks when the water warms a little mid-morning. Senkos without weight, templates, platforms Ned or Senkos in green squash are working near the docks or in longer sandy areas with access to deep water. Bass fishermen have also caught trout on a launch pad. The trout trolling has been fair at best, with one fish per hour taken with combinations of blades / caterpillars or wedding rings with a ranger behind a skier.

We had limits of contrabass and halibut with stripes on Saturday and we continued with four more limits, plus three crews and a striper that Clara landed. We also leave the live bait adrift. The weather broke us to perfection, and we could not have had a better trip with good company and excellent action throughout the day. The tides were less than ideal, but the fish stung throughout the day, especially at the end of the day when the tide subsided. Alex Niapas of Altaville limited himself to the few hours of his first halibut trip, and showed the skill honed by his many tournament wins in the bass circuit with a deft touch to hook and land every opportunity. Stefan Grobecker also settled in a clinic with an early limit, but Clara Ricabal, responsible for organizing this trip and giving me the opportunity, came to the end with a limit that includes the big fish of the day with 15 pounds. Pro Cure's Steve Lynch also participated in the event and said: "This trip saved our week since we got snow in Truckee and we went bankrupt for our trip scheduled for Tuesday at Bodega Bay."

Delta / Stockton

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

Hay una nueva amenaza para el bajo rayado, el contrabajo negro y todas las otras especies no nativas en el Delta, ya que el Departamento de Pesca y Vida Silvestre y la Comisión de Pesca y Caza escucharán un esfuerzo por revocar la política de contrabajo a partir de 1996 y adoptarla. una nueva política de administración de Delta que exige protecciones estrictas para salmonoides y peces listados solamente. Según la Asociación de Guías y Deportistas del Norte de California, este es el primer paso para aumentar los límites de equipaje y reducir las restricciones de tamaño. La Asociación organizará el transporte en autobús desde el área de Martínez, Rio Vista, Sacramento y Yuba City / Colusa para la reunión el 12 de junio de 8:30 a.m. a 4:00 p.m. en el Red Lion Hotel en Redding en 1830 Hilltop Drive.

El fin de semana del Día de los Caídos es el comienzo tradicional del fin de la temporada de pesca de primavera en el Delta del Sacramento, ya que los navegantes recreativos tomarán el poder después de este fin de semana festivo anual que anuncia el comienzo de los meses de verano, pero con el agua aún por llegar. en el río Sacramento y en los afluentes superiores, la acción de pesca para el esturión, la lubina rayada y el sábalo debería mantenerse en el futuro previsible.

La mayoría de los pescadores de bajo rayado se quedan en el río San Joaquín, donde continúan moviéndose nuevos lotes de líneas, pero hay rayas que se mueven hacia arriba y hacia abajo en el sistema, ya que el desove se ha retrasado en los afluentes superiores debido a que el agua está más fría que lo normal en el Feather Río. La serie de tormentas de esta semana solo ha servido para enfriar más el agua.

Alan Fong of the Fishermen’s Warehouse in Sacramento said, “Shad action remains solid from Freeport on up, and the American River has broken loose this past week, but the shad have to come through the north Delta. I went to Liberty Island this week to throw chatterbaits, and we found good action for largemouth bass to 4 pounds even though the conditions were less than ideal with rain throughout the day.”

The inclement weather has slowed down interest in fishing, and a series of thunderstorms over the weekend kept traffic in area bait shops on the light side.

Tony Lopez of Benicia Bait said, “For the first time in a long time, we have live bait of grass shrimp, pile worms, and blood worms at the end of the weekend, and there have been few anglers coming into the shop with the weather. The grass shrimp has been on the small side.”

Captain Joey Gamez of Golden State Sport Fishing continues to find tremendous sturgeon action in Suisun Bay, and his trip on Saturday with John Garner of Pinole, Aaron Austin of Modesto, and Richard and Chris Roundtree of Roseville onto limits of sturgeon on cured salmon roe. The action remains hot for the few anglers willing to stay on the anchor. The allure of the most incredible halibut bite in decades is drawing anglers to the bays, but the sturgeon remain a more than viable option for those wanting to pull on a big fish.

The wind and rain remained constant throughout the past week, but fresh striped bass continue to move into the San Joaquin River system in waves. Largemouth bass are in all stages of the spawn, and there are still a number of bass in pre-spawn mode.

Randy Pringle, the Fishing Instructor, was out this week in the rain, and he said, “We had a great day on the Delta as the reaction bite is improving with the ima Squarebill crankbait in crawdad or bluegill. The bass are feeding on the bluegill due to guarding the fry. There is a topwater bite with the ima Little Stick along with the new Choppo which is Berkley’s answer to a Whopper Plopper. This lure doesn’t roll to the side. The ima Flit in shad patterns is also effective, particularly on the high tides near sparse tules and along the outside edges of the weed bed. The Berkley Chigger Craw along with the Power Hog is also working as any type of creature bait has been effective.”

Dan Mathisen of Dan Mathisen Outdoors said, “Thursday and Friday were good for largemouth bass, and we were catching them before the wind and rain arrived once again over the weekend. We have been flipping big creature baits such as Sweet Beavers along the edge of the tules along with buzzbaits and spinnerbaits. The Bass Land Beaver has been particularly effective, and many of the largemouth bass are still in pre-spawn mode with no marks on their tails, clean, and chubby males hanging around. I think we are from 6 to 8 weeks behind right now. Stripers are still an option and we are finding them on the 4-inch Bad Bubba Shad swimbait in Jackson Trout or PB Special.”

Clyde Wands, shallow trolling expert, fished the Iselton Chapter of the Rio Vista Striped Bass Association target length derby this past week, and he said, “We went upriver to get out of the wind, and we had a very good day with 28 keepers to 18 pounds, and we released all of the big fish. We found a school of quality keepers. We kept three of the smaller keepers. Tuesday was a different story with high winds, and few keepers. The school that we were on had left, and we only marked a few stripers. The fish we caught on both days were new fish, and although I don’t know how long it is going to last, it seems like it will for a while.”

The big tides affected the troll bite on Monday, and Wands went into the Old Sacramento River for only 5 striped bass to 4 pounds. He said, “There was a 44-inch striper landed downstream in the main river so there are still big fish coming through.”

Jeff Soo Hoo of Soo Hoo’s Sport Fishing out of Laurtizen’s Yacht Harbor in Oakley said, “The stripers are chewing, and we limited out early this morning as I took my children and their friend out before the rain hit on Sunday. The birds were working, and we picked them up on both P-Line Laser Minnow spoons or swimbaits. I have been staying in the San Joaquin River as there is no reason to head over to the Sacramento side. The water did get dirty overnight as it was clear on Saturday. Many of my clients have their own boats, but they want to learn to land the numbers of stripers, and is is generally an unbelievable experience for them when they can’t get to the bottom before getting hit. The action has been steady throughout the day, and I will be on the stripers for a few more weeks before heading to San Francisco Bay to run a party boat for Fish Emeryville for the summer.”

H and R Bait in Stockton reported slow interest in fishing over the windy and wet weekend, but they are still receiving fresh shad on a regular basis.

Lake Nacimiento/San Antonio/Santa Margarita/Lopez

Bass 3 White bass 2 Striper 1 Catfish 2 Crappie 2

At Nacimiento, water releases are pushing the bass off of the shorelines, out into deeper water. Spotted bass have been more reluctant to bite, but they can be found at depths to 15 feet with plastics on a finesse technique or underspins. Crappie are holding in submerged brush, and minijigs or grups are picking up the slabs. Bluegill are cruising the shorelines with red worms or meal worms, and the white bass has also slowed with the occasional school located in the backs of coves in the river arm. Small white Roostertails or Kastmasters are still best for the whites. The fuel dock is now selling fuel again from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The lake dropped slightly to 81 percent this week.

At San Antonio, the lake rose slightly to 42 percent, and the lake is open from Thursday to Sunday with plans to open seven days per week by the end of the month or in early June. Catfish are still the best option with cut baits loaded with scent. Bass action remains slow.

At Lopez Lake, the overall size of the bass has dropped, and shad-pattered plastics or small spinnerbaits are working best for bass to 2 pounds while crappie are found around structure with minijigs or grubs. Panfishing for bluegill or red ear perch are taken with nightcrawlers, mealworms, or reds worms.

At Santa Margarita, the largest grade of bass in the coastal lakes has been reported with largemouths to 8 pounds taken this week. Jigs, swimbaits, jerkbaits, or big plastic worms on a Texas-rig are most effective. Live nightcrawlers are also working from the shorelines for bass. Crappie are taken on minijigs or grubs while soaking mackerel has been the best option for catfish, particularly near the marina. Boaters are advised to contact the lake’s ranger station at 805-788-2397 for information on the availability of the single ramp.
