San Joaquin County Sheriff.. Rolled up on me and two others fishing right next to the road.He referred all questions I asked about fishing on the Cali to be referred to a game warden . I had to mention the public access that the cali website promotes to the public about the bike trail access.

I think I know whats going on! a few months ago someone blew up the new bathroom at Bethany with an actual bomb and it leveled the whole structure. The FBI even came to investigate so ever since then the sheriff has been patrolling Bethany. my brother got rolled up on a few nites ago there and they told them about it. so thats probably why they are cracking down on the mendota. been out to the cali a few times the last two weeks and no bites.

My brother was out on the mendota and some guy fishing on top of the gates was ready to fight the water district employee when told to get off the gates . Could be contributing as well to the sheriff dept limiting access since they are the ones that have to respond out there. Slow fishing over the last couple of weeks but the ones caught have been in the 18 plus size with fewer little guys.next week will worm up a bit ,hope it picks up the bite.

Leave it a few Knuckleheads to ruin it for everyone. Haven't been out in a while. I guess I better get used to the Cali.

I've fished Mendota before with no issues. It's always a few individuals that ruin it for everyone.

No bites lately on the mendota. Been hitting it after work for 10 to 20 minutes and only one little guy in 4 tries. Caught a 22 incher at los vaqueros while fishing for trout . So much for the fishing report for the lake ,it was 5 landed and 4 missed bites. Quite different fishing a lake for stripers than the aquaducts . And they dont fight nearly as hard from the lake.

Went back to an old spot next to work . Got a visit from the game warden while fishing the mendota past the yellow gates.All was good,he stated that walking in and fishing is ok . Told him about the sheriff running me off the mendota at bird rd .Apparently the sheriffs dept is the one that gets called in to handle those that tresspass on the gates and intimidate the water dist employees.So they enforce in a differnt manner to remove the possability of getting called out there. Anyway got two missed two more in about 20 minutes. The bites is coming back and the flow has slowed on the mendota.

went out to the mendota yesterday evening for about an hour and got bites on every cast and caught a 19 inch striper on chicken liver about 30 minutes in. also went to the cali a few days ago with no luck but a guy fishing next to me said him and his buddy limited out a few days earlier on chicken liver. seems like the action is starting to pick up!

Barn Thanks for the heads up. Makes it a little easier to fish on the Mendota. Went on Sat afternoon, caught one pretty slow though. Hope to go out next week

Sunday finally fished in the morning .started st 8:30 and finished at 9:30. Three stripers over 18 inches and 5 close to 18 inches. Found a school sitting at an old spot then they moved and could not find the school again. Will have to try again in the morning next weekend.

Fished a couple more timed at Safeway with lots of fish . some keepers and a lot close to it . fished with my brother on Tuesday at the same spot and the numbers were lower after work. So what the secret to getting the bigger ones. Used bigger swim shad and caught the same damn fish
