Default Castaic Lake

THIS WEEK'S HOT SPOTS

STRIPED BASS: Castaic Lake has been kicking out quality stripers to 13-0 for anglers fishing anchovies or sardines from 40 to 100 feet deep. Most fish are weighing from 2-0 to 6-0, but plenty of bigger fish are showing. Lake Silverwood has been kicking out fair numbers of stripers from 2-0 to 4-0 on anchovies. The bite has been better for boat anglers fishing the deeper waters near the inlet, spillway, and dam. The California Aqueduct from Bakersfield to Hesperia continues to pump out fish with minimum fishing pressure. Best times to target this area is early in the morning or late in the evening due to high temperatures. On the Colorado River, striper fishing broke open at Mohave and Mead. Weekend boat traffic has still been heavy and slows the fishing, so the best fishing is reported around mid-week or at night.

Default CALIFORNIA HOT SPOTS

THIS WEEK'S HOT SPOTS

STRIPED BASS: Lake Pyramid continues to have the best action in the Southland with easy limits of fish from 1-0 to 6-0 being landed on most days. Anchovies or sardines continue to be the best baits. Castaic Lake has slowed down from last month but fair fishing on quality stripers can still be found. Lake Skinner was closed much of the week due to a nearby fire, but fishing was fair to good before the closure and should be after the lake reopens on Thursday. The Colorado River has been excellent from Laughlin to Blythe on cut anchovies. Most fish are under a pound, but a few fish to 9-0 have been landed. Lake Mead has also been on fire for smaller fish under 3-0. The stripers are staying on the surface until noon if the boat pressure isn't bad. Once the fish go down anglers are vertical jigging small spoons to 50 feet deep for the best action

Default Suisun-Delta:

Suisun-Delta: Really quite good for striped bass, odd as that seems, with the schools still out in the ocean and down along the beaches. And yet ... the trollers are putting a hit on the fish in the shallows around Rio Vista, the west bank and Old Dairy. Most are pulling shallow-running Rebels ...

Default Napa River

Napa River
How many ways can we say this? "Catch your striped bass here now!" We've had weeks of wide-open fishing for stripers up and down the river. It's another reason why Napa Valley is so special. Bankies -- soak sardines or anchovies. Find some live bait like mud suckers and catch some bigger fish. Trollers -- continue to use Rattletraps, broken back Rebels or your favorite trolling rigs. Let me know when you catch a monster.

Default FRESHWATER HOT SPOTS

FRESHWATER HOT SPOTS

STRIPED BASS: The Willow Beach stretch of the Colorado River has been cranking out some huge stripers to 36-0 on trout plugs. Not a lot, but enough to note. This bite will only improve through fall and winter. Smaller Lake Mead stripers to 4-0 continue to chase bait to the surface in the morning and topwater plugs have been killing them. During the day fish are suspended in 30 to 50 feet of water. Anglers jigging spoons have been cashing in. Lake Castaic has been good with limits of fish to 2-0 being landed on cut anchovies or sardines. Lake Silverwood has been good on under 1-0 stripers. Pieces of nightcrawler or anchovies have been best. Fish reports for Lake Pyramid have been near-impossible to get, but word has it that fishing is fair to good on stripers to 2-8.

Default San Pablo Bay

San Pablo Bay: Striped bass fishing is red hot. Anglers catch limits drifting live anchovies and hook a few halibut, too. Muddy water slowed fishing a few days ago, but four anglers aboard a six-pack boat were catching and releasing fish with frequency Wednesday. Some fish are undersized, some weigh 6-8 pounds (which can be considered big) and an occasional fish weighs in the lower teens. There are a few salmon at California City if anglers want to troll on the high tide, then drift for stripers on the moving tide. Loch Lomond Bait Shop (415) 456-0321.

Default THIS WEEK'S HOT SPOTS

STRIPED BASS: The best striper action has been at Lake Havasu where anglers are catching and releasing from 25-75 fish a day. Striper fishing does not get any better than this. Elsewhere in the Colorado River region, Lake Mead continues to have a good bite on jigged spoons for smaller fish up to three pounds. In Southern California, the best striper action continues to be at Lake Castaic. Fishing has been fair to good on anchovies or sardines. Top areas have been the buoy line or Elizabeth Canyon.

Default Paradise area.

SAN FRANCISCO
The fleet will continue to run for salmon until the season ends, occasionally mixing rockfish with the kings. On board the live bait trips, the Bass Tub found wide-open striper action last week with 100-plus fish days from the Paradise area.

Default FRESHWATER HOT SPOTS

FRESHWATER HOT SPOTS

STRIPED BASS: The only bite in Southern California that improved with the cooler weather and rain was the striper bite at Lake Skinner. The few boat anglers that were out fishing the inlet were rewarded with limit-style fishing on stripers to 10-0. Stripers were up boiling on shad and anglers connected with topwater plugs, Storm Wildeye Shad swimbaits, or Rat-L-Traps. Once the fish leave the surface anglers are fishing cut anchovies or chicken livers on the bottom. Wide-open striper fishing also continues at Lake Mead with many anglers catching and releasing 50 fish a day. The lower basin has been the hottest area, and fish have been staying on the surface all day. Topwater plugs and shad swimbaits were the hot lures this week. The striper action at Lake Havasu has cooled down some, but fishing has been excellent early in the afternoon on surface baits or shad-type jerk baits and cranks. Before and during the rain, striper fishing had been good at Lake Silverwood with good action in Miller's Canyon and Outhouse Cove. Lake Silverwood has also been receiving DFG trout plants and stripers to 27-0 have shown on trout swimbaits since. Striper fishing at Lake Castaic continues to be good with fish on the surface feeding on shad most mornings. Top methods for taking fish have been working boils with topwater plugs or trolling silver Kastmasters on five colors of leadcore. Lake Pyramid has been a little slow, but some big fish to 27-0 have shown on trout swimbaits since the DFG began planting trout two weeks ago. The lake is set to be planted again this week so that should get the big fish stirring again
